Dallas Goedert is staying in Philadelphia.
Friday, the Eagles reached an agreement with the tight end on a four-year contract extension. There are conflicting reports about what the extension is worth. NFL’s Ian Rapoport reports $57 million with $35 million guaranteed and ESPN’s Adam Schefter reports $59 million with $35.7 million guaranteed. Either way, a huge payday for the 26-year-old.
He will now play in midnight green through 2025 and states that the extension is a dream come true.

Goedert is now the third-highest paid tight end in the league behind George Kittle and Travis Kelce.
As a second-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, Goedert’s gameplay has improved each year. Following Zach Ertz’s trade to the Arizona Cardinals, Goedert rightfully took over the TE1 position. This season, he has 29 receptions for 429 yards and two touchdowns. He currently leads all NFL tight ends in receiving first-down percentage (75.9%). He also ranks third among tight ends in receiving average yards per catch (14.8).
In last week’s game against the Denver Broncos, Goedert was injured in the first half and now remains on concussion protocol. However, today head coach Nick Sirianni announced that Goedert will play in Sunday’s upcoming [home] game against the New Orleans Saints.
