Landon Dickerson has received a massive contract extension

While the Eagles’ 2023 season ended poorly, they still have a lot of young talent returning in 2024. Jason Kelce and Fletcher Cox both announced their retirements this offseason. Philly is going to miss Kelce massively on their offensive line. He chose to walk away from the game after his third straight as a first-team All-Pro center. 

Having a dominant offensive line is something the Eagles have built their team around for years. Kelce will be missed but the Eagles are doing what they can to make sure the offensive line is still top-tier. That is why the Eagles are signing guard Landon Dickerson to a new extension. He’s been a key piece of their offensive line for the last three seasons.

In the 2021 NFL Draft, the Eagles used an early 2nd-round pick on Alabama offensive lineman Landon Dickerson. The 25-year-old quickly for in with Philadelphia’s high-powered offensive line. As a rookie, Dickerson played in 14 of their 17 games and made 13 starts. General Manager Howie Roseman was confident that Dickerson could be a star lineman in the NFL. That’s why his talent in the 2nd-round was too good for the team to pass up on.

Dickerson has been named to the Pro Bowl in each of his last two seasons for the Eagles. Additionally, he’s missed just one game in that span. Since 2011, he is the second offensive lineman taken after the first round to reach two Pro Bowls in their first three seasons. Philly has a special talent in Dickerson and they’re happy to have him locked into a new contract.
