The Philadelphia Eagles agreed to terms with left tackle Jordan Mailata on a four-year, $64 million contract through 2025 according to a report by Adam Caplan.

The former rugby player was selected No. 233 overall in the seventh round of the 2018 Draft. The following year, the Eagles traded up in the first round to select tackle Andre Dillard, presumably to be their future franchise blindside protector. Mailata kept working and getting better before finally taking a stranglehold on the starting left tackle job after a very strong 2020 season finish. From Weeks 12-16, Mailata’s 78.7 grade ranked seventh among left tackles.

As for Dillard, NFL Media's Mike Garofalo noted that a move to guard is not out of the question as they look for a new spot for him along the offensive line.

BETTING IMPACT

Eagles Week 1 total: Philadelphia locks in Jordan Mailata to an extension, solidifying an important offensive piece to their rebuilding plans. The total market for Week 1 isn't as optimistic about offensive success with the total dropping a half point down to 48.5. At that number, PFF's betting projections find value on the over, despite the Eagles ranking 30th in our opponent-adjusted offensive grades. PFF's Betting Futures Tool reveals betting opportunities within season win total and future markets.

NFL IMPACT

An evolving talent: Mailata received a 67.7 pass-blocking grade in 2020 — his first year starting — but improved to 84.8 this preseason. Among the 42 tackles with at least 500 pass pro snaps last season, he has the second-highest knockdown percentage (you could call this pancake rate) at 2. Click here to find PFF's NFL player grades.
