Howie Roseman didn't make any significant moves during the season to help out the 2019 Eagles, but in recent weeks he has been busy locking up players on the team to long-term deals. First it was extending Brandon Brooks to the richest-deal for a guard in NFL history, and then it was securing longsnapper Rick Lovato to a multi-year extension. Now he is signing Jake Elliott to a five-year contract extension.
This deal makes him one of the highest-paid kickers in the league.
Even though he is on pace to make the least amount of field goals in his career, Elliott is currently the most successful kicker in NFL, making all 14 of his field goal attempts this season. Elliott has made 18 consecutive field goals dating back to last season, which is tied for the 2nd-longest streak of consecutive field goals made in Eagles history (Alex Henery - 22 straight in 2012).
With the most of the league going through a kicker crisis, it's been a blessing that Elliott has been able to become a successful kicker in the league. Now as long as he continues to play well, he will be with the Eagles all the way through 2024. He currently sits tied for the 6th-most made field goals in team history (66). He has a long way to go to catch up to David Akers' team record of 294 made field goals.
