Former Alabama wide receiver DeVonta Smith won’t be leaving Philadelphia for the foreseeable future.

It was reported by NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport that Smith and the Eagles have agreed to a 3-year $75 million contract extension with a total of $51 million guaranteed.

After winning the Heisman Trophy at Alabama, Smith was the Eagles’ first-round pick in the 2021 NFL Draft and has become one of the most promising young receivers in the league.

Alongside fellow wide receiver AJ Brown and quarterback Jalen Hurts, Smith has already helped the franchise reach a Super Bowl and will be the goal once again for this upcoming season.
