Eagles’ OT Jordan Mailata is signing a four-year, $64 million extension that could be worth up to $80 million and includes $40.85 million guaranteed, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 11, 2021
His agents, Jeff Nalley and Graylan Crain, just confirmed the deal to ESPN.
I know there was talks to possibly resigning Jordan Mailata to a deal after the season but signing him to an extension before the season starts is a bold move cotton. A bold move that I’m 100% on board with. The team rave about him, the coaches rave, about him and the media raves about him.
This kid is already a good LT, and he’s only going to get better.
Low Risk, High Reward move for Howie Roseman and the Eagles here. Buy low for a potential huge reward.
All this sauce is here for four more years 🙌#FlyEaglesFly pic.twitter.com/vfhvGVDCBS— Philadelphia Eagles (@Eagles) September 11, 2021
Jordan Mailata never had worn a football helmet until three years ago and he has started only 10 games, but he’s 6’8”, 380 pounds, with freakish athletic ability and upside. https://t.co/Qrtei0P0vU— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 11, 2021
LT Jordan Mailata and the Eagles wrapped up the 4-year extension through 2025 just before the team left the NovaCare Complex to fly to Atlanta its season-opener against the Falcons. https://t.co/Qrtei0P0vU— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) September 11, 2021
For Mailata, it’s a huge payday before his first year as an unquestioned starter. For the #Eagles, it’s buying low for a guy who would command even more if he plays as well as they expect. https://t.co/ivqlTe9Cqu— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) September 11, 2021
