Jake Elliott Agrees To Contract Extension With Eagles

Wednesday, March 13, 4:22 PM

The Philadelphia Eagles are re-signing kicker Jake Elliott to a four-year, $24 million contract extension, as reported by ESPN's Adam Schefter. Elliott earned second-team All-Pro honors in 2023 after making 30 of his 32 field-goal attempts and 45 of his 46 extra points. His longest field goal of the year was from 61 yards. The 29-year-old finished tied for fifth among kickers in fantasy points per game (9.2) last year, and he should remain a top-12 fantasy kicker for years to come behind a strong Eagles offense. He is now tied with Justin Tucker as the highest-paid kicker based on average salary ($6 million).

Joey Slye Signs With Patriots

Thursday, May 2, 4:24 PM

Veteran free-agent kicker Joey Slye signed with the New England Patriots on Thursday, according to NFL.com. The 28-year-old signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars at the start of free agency on March 18 but was released just over a month later after the team drafted former Arkansas kicker Cam Little in the sixth round of the 2024 NFL Draft. Since entering the league in 2018 as an undrafted free agent, Slye has spent time with the New York Giants, Carolina Panthers, Houston Texans, San Francisco 49ers, and Jaguars. In 75 career games, he has connected on 121 of his 147 field goal attempts and 138 of his 156 extra-point tries. He will likely compete with Chad Ryland for the starting place-kicking duties for New England this offseason.
