The Philadelphia Eagles have been busy this offseason. On Monday, they continued their impressive haul by agreeing to a massive three-year, $75 million contract extension with DeVonta Smith, per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network. The Eagles also picked up the fifth-year option for Smith, meaning he will be in town until 2028.

‘The #Eagles have paid another big-time, rising player. This time, WR DeVonta Smith gets a 3-year, $75M contract extension that includes $51M guaranteed, sources say…The #Eagles have exercised the fifth-year option for WR DeVonta Smith, and with the new extension, he's now under contract through 2028.'

The deal was done by @kelt_crenshaw of @KlutchSports, and it keeps Smith in PHI for years to come. ‘

The Eagles also recently signed OL Jordan Mailata to a new contract as well as signing Devin White, Saquon Barkley, and acquiring Kenny Pickett in a trade in just a few of the offseason moves. After the Eagles' disappointing finish to the season, in which they lost five of the last six regular season games before a 32-9 loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the playoffs, they are loading up to try and make another Super Bowl run.

This is a big deal for the Eagles, who have now locked in one of their starting wide receivers with this big money. Smith is coming off a 1,066-yard campaign where he had 81 catches and seven touchdowns.

The Eagles continue to pay their star players big money. And, more importantly, the deal for Smith gets them ahead of the curve with a heavy wave of talented wide receivers expected to get paid soon. That list includes all of Justin Jefferson, CeeDee Lamb, Ja'Marr Chase, Brandon Aiyuk, Tee Higgins, and Amon-Ra St. Brown, among others.

Smith now joins players such as Calvin Ridley, Michael Pittman Jr., and other wide receivers who inked new deals this offseason. Pittman, who was drafted a year before Smith, signed a $71.5 million extension this offseason with the Indianapolis Colts, so Smith's deal is somewhat similar to Pittman's.

Smith was second on the team in every receiving category behind AJ Brown, and the 1-2 WR punch in Philadelphia will remain together for some time. He had eight catches and 148 yards in the loss to the Buccaneers and has become a consistent weapon in the offense for Jalen Hurts.

The Eagles selected Smith 10th overall in the 2021 NFL Draft after an impressive run at Alabama, so now they keep one of their own for years to come in a big move for the franchise. The big offseason continues for the Eagles and DeVonta Smith gets a well-deserved pay raise after a solid start to his NFL career.
