ITB: What Would Devonta, Dickerson Extensions Look Like?


The Philadelphia Eagles are about to face major decisions on contract extensions for key players.

On the latest episode of “Inside The Birds,” Adam Caplan and Geoff Mosher identified the stars that are due for a new contract. 

DeVonta Smith

GETTY IMAGES: Eagles wide receiver DeVonta Smith is soon to be due for a contract extension.

Haason Reddick

Geoff Mosher: “Being given permission to seek a trade does not equal you demanded a trade. I think he felt that was the public perception. This is a negotiating mechanism and nobody said Haason wants out or demanded to be out”

Adam Caplan: “He loves being an Eagle and they love him. It’s a tough deal, he is severely underpaid but has a contract and this is the final year.”

DeVonta Smith

Caplan: “The Eagles can wait as long as they want, but they won’t do that to him. The deal, if it gets done, is going to be between $25-30 million a year. A.J. Brown is their number one receiver, but you have to understand his injury history. This could be Brown’s last year because his salary cap number goes from $12.5 million this season to $26.6 million in 2025. The Eagles may not want to pay two guys. Smith does it all, been durable despite his build.”

Mosher: “When you have a player with a fifth-year option, teams like to do the extension now because they can finagle the cap so that the big money doesn’t kick in for a year or two down the road.”

Landon Dickerson

Caplan: “The money at guard now has finally hit the $20 million mark, but there are only two guys: Chris Lindstrom and Quenton Nelson…If I’m Dickerson’s agent, I am asking for $20 million a year.”

Mosher: “Lindstrom has made the last two Pro Bowls and so has Dickerson, and Dickerson is younger…if Kelce retires and Jurgens moves to center on a rookie contract and whoever is at right guard is not going to cost them very much, that enables them for at least a year or two more to have your left guard making top of the line money.”
