Howie Roseman and the Eagles have signed another player from the 2018 draft class. According to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter the Eagles have agreed to a 3 year extension with cornerback Avonte Maddox. His new deal with be a $22.5 million dollar deal with $13.3 million being guaranteed. The move comes almost exactly 24 hours after the Eagles announced an extension with fellow 2018 draft pick (and former roommate of Maddox) Dallas Goedert

Maddox joins Dallas Goedert, Josh Sweat, and Jordan Mailata as players from the 2018 draft who earned a second contract with the Birds. An impressive draft considering they only had 5 picks that year. Maddox has really established himself as a slot corner and he will be shutting down opposing wide receivers for at least 3 more years
