Philadelphia Eagles officially sign their 2018 rookie draft class
It’s official. The Philadelphia Eagles have officially signed their 2018 NFL Draft class.
As exciting as the NFL Draft is, nothing’s set in stone until everyone drafted puts pen to paper. On the ninth day of May, the reigning Super Bowl champions officially introduced the newest members of the Philadelphia Eagles‘ family.
Dallas Goedert (49th overall), Avonte Maddox (pick 125), Josh Sweat (pick 130), Matt Pryor (206) and Jordan Mailata (233) have all signed. The Eagles organization couldn’t be any happier.
Take a look:
Let’s look at the particulars.

Goedert’s deal, being that he’s the second-rounder, is the most lucrative. According to Over the Cap, his contract is for four years and $3.4 million.
Maddox, Pryor and Sweat will rake in $2.4 million over four years. Those numbers were all provided by Over the Cap as well.
Mailata, the seventh-rounder, is also now, officially, in the fold as well. As of the time of this writing, no details have been provided on the details.
Now, all they have to do is make the team.
It’s time to put the pads on.
The Eagles can, now, officially turn the page from the draft and focus completely on camps and building a roster capable of making another Super Bowl run.
One thing we can say with certainty is Goedert will make the final roster. Sweat and Maddox figure to be included. They’ll both need to prove themselves in camp as Philly’s got a lot of bodies at the defensive end and cornerback position. Pryor and Mailata appear to have their work cut out for them. They’re both looking to find a spot on one of the best and deepest offensive lines in all of football.
