Jordan Mailata signs large contract extension



The Eagles' left tackle of the future has been signed today, to a massive contract extension through 2025. What a remarkable story.


Jordan Mailata, who was a 7th round pick in 2018, and didn't play a snap of football at any level until 2020, has agreed to a four-year deal worth $64 million. $40.5 million of the contract is guaranteed. Bonuses could make the contract worth up to $80 million, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Mailata, who started 10 games last year, after injuries all across the offensive line. Fighting for a starting position coming into training camp, he beat out former first round pick, Andre Dillard in camp, to earn the starting spot this season.


Mailata, a former rugby player, will be earning $850,000 this season to play out the last year of his rookie contract. The $16 million average in the extension will make Mailata the 12th- highest paid offensive tackle in the NFL.


Mailata will get his first chance to prove he is worth being among the highest-paid tackles in the league tomorrow in Atlanta, making his first career opening day start. Expectations are high and the future looks bright for the newly established left tackle.
