NFL Offseason: Jake Elliott Lands Four-Year Extension With Eagles

NFL Offseason: Jake Elliott Lands Four-Year Extension With Eagles Bill Streicher, USA TODAY Sports

Move over Braden Mann and Rick Lovato, it’s Jake Elliott’s turn.

Although the top-of-the-line kicker was already under contract with the Birds, he’s getting a new deal of his own. For four years, in fact.

Already tied for third on the team, next season will be his eighth with the Birds.

The extension should begin to take effect in 2025, so it would, in theory, carry him through his 12th season in Philadelphia.

Elliott has been just outstanding. He holds a career 86.2% make percentage on field goals and a 65.9% touchback percentage, but those numbers are dragged down by his early career and, in particular, a disastrous 2020 season.

Over the last three seasons, Elliott has unquestionably been a top three kicker in the league. He has a 90.9% made field goal percentage (including 15/17 from 50+ yards) and a touchback percentage of 70.9% during that time.

He’s also missed just three extra points over the last three seasons.

The deal is not a low ball, however, as it’s reportedly worth $24 million. That’d make it a $6 million AAV, which would tie Elliott with Justin Tucker atop kicker contract rankings.

The Eagles will continue to be active, but it’s good to see they are not forgetting about their own players in the early stages of free agency.
