Eagles, K Jake Elliott agree to 4-year extension


The Philadelphia Eagles and All-Pro kicker Jake Elliott agreed to a four-year contract extension through the 2028 season.

While the team announced the extension on Wednesday, no financial details were disclosed. ESPN valued the deal at $24 million, which at $6 million per year would tie Elliott with Ravens kicker Justin Tucker for the highest-paid kicker in NFL history.

On Tuesday, the Eagles agreed to contract extensions with long snapper Rick Lovato and punter Braden Mann.

Elliott, 29, set the franchise record in 2023 for single-season field goal percentage at 93.8 (30 of 32), field goals of more than 50 yards (seven), and points (135).

He enters the 2024 season riding a streak of 15 consecutive made field goals, including the playoffs.

The Cincinnati Bengals picked Elliott in the fifth round of the 2017 NFL Draft and released him that September. He was promptly picked up by the Eagles and has appeared in 113 games with Philadelphia.

He has a career-long field goal of 61 yards and has connected on 86.2 percent (168 of 195) of field goal attempts and 95.8 percent (271 of 283) of his point-after tries.
