And so Maddox and Dallas Goedert, roommates and close friends, both get lucrative extensions 24 hours apart.
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
