Eagles, Sweat agree to 3-year, $40M extension
The deal contains a maximum value of $42 million and keeps Sweat tied to the Eagles through the 2024 campaign.
Sweat has seen his stock rise gradually since entering the NFL as a fourth-round pick of the Eagles in 2018. A history of knee injuries hurt his draft position, but Sweat has been durable and productive over the past two seasons.
Josh Sweat - sack production
Sweat is the second member of the Eagles' 2018 draft class to ink an extension. Left tackle Jordan Mailata - a seventh-round pick that year - agreed to a four-year deal worth up to $80 million before the season opener.
