Wide receiver Alshon Jeffery has signed a four-year contract extension with the Philadelphia Eagles.

Jeffery joined the Eagles during the offseason, signing a one-year deal after having spent the first five years of his NFL career with the Chicago Bears.

He has so far caught 43 passes for 619 yards in his first year with the Eagles, second behind tight end Zach Ertz in both receiving categories, and they are tied for the team lead with seven touchdowns apiece.

An Eagles statement read: "Alshon has been a tremendous addition to this organisation on and off the field.

"We place a priority on making sure we are able to build the team around quality players like Alshon who embrace this team and this city the way he has. We are excited about his future here."

Jeffery has helped the Eagles to a season-leading 10-1 record heading into a week 13 date with the Seattle Seahawks.
