Brown, who has been seeking a new deal, has agreed to a four-year, $100 million contract with the Eagles that includes a guaranteed $57 million, sources told ESPN’s Kimberly Martin.
The 24-year-old Brown was entering the final year of his start-up deal and was set to earn a base salary of just under $4 million in 2022.
Brown shot 63 times for 869 yards and five touchdowns in 13 games last season. He crossed the 1,000-yard receiving mark in each of his first two seasons, including a 70-hold and 1,075-yard campaign in 2020 when he captured the top 11 TDs of his career.
The Eagles’ Super Bowl odds improved from 50/1 to 40/1 at Caesars Sportsbook after the deal. Philadelphia also went from 20/1 to 18/1 for the NFC win and is at +325 to win the NFC East title at Caesars.
The acquisition of Brown was the Eagles’ second trade of the night. Minutes ago, they moved to pick number 13 to choose Georgia Defensive handling Jordan Davisthe 6-foot-6, 340-pound anchor for the Bulldogs’ Championship defense.
The Eagles sent their total picks 15, 124, 162 and 166 to Houston Texas For Davis, who created a sensation in exploration with an impressive athletic display that included a 4.78-second 40-yard dash — 40 times the fastest for a 325-pound or heavier player in the combine since at least 2006, according to ESPN Statistics and Information Research.
Davis played 32 tackles (five for losses) and Shailene in 14 games last season for the Bulldogs. He played only 38% of Georgia’s defensive picks in 2021 and was mostly a two-hall player, only playing 16% of the shots in third place. This led to questions heading into the draft about whether Davis was just tackling filler.
The Eagles believed he could be an effective striker too, and he was left off the field due to the incredible talent on Georgia’s roster.
