The Eagles Continue To Prioritize Their Offensive Line With This Latest Extension

The Philadelphia Eagles have secured their left tackle position for the foreseeable future by signing Jordan Mailata to a three-year contract extension. The deal is worth an impressive $66 million, with $48 million guaranteed and a $20 million signing bonus. Let’s dive into the details and what this means for the Eagles.


Mailata, a 27-year-old 6-foot-8, 365-pounder, played an astounding 1,147 snaps in the 2023 season, demonstrating his durability and skill at one of the NFL’s most demanding positions. He forms a great duo with Pro Bowl left guard Landon Dickerson making the Eagles’ left side of the line one of the best in the league.


With Mailata and Dickerson locked in until 2028, the Eagles have excellent protection for their quarterback, Jalen Hurts. Mailata’s rise from an Australian dream-chaser to a Pro Bowl-caliber left tackle is a remarkable story, and he continues to improve under the guidance of offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland. It is amazing development for a player that was not even picked until the seventh-round back in 2018.


The Eagles O-Line Will Continue To Push The Team

Following the retirement of all-time great center Jason Kelce, the Eagles boast three elite linemen under contract: Mailata, Dickerson, and right tackle Lane Johnson. Johnson’s contract runs until 2026, ensuring stability on both sides of the offensive line. This trio will provide crucial protection for Hurts and create opportunities for offensive weapons like A.J. Brown, Saquon Barkley, Dallas Goedert, and DeVonta Smith.


In closing, Jordan Mailata’s extension cements the Eagles’ commitment to building a formidable offensive line. With their core linemen secured, the team looks poised for success in the seasons ahead.
