Kicker: Jake Elliott, Punter: Cameron Johnston, Longsnapper: Rick Lovato
Like the quarterback position, the specialists are pretty easy to identify. The Eagles committed to Jake Elliott with a five-year, $21.8 million contract extension on November 27th of 2019 that will guarantee that there are only two other kickers in the league that will make more money.
Expect that to be brought up any time that he misses a field goal.
Cameron Johnston is the punter. He was just re-signed to a one-year, $660,000 contract by the Eagles on March 24th. He has a career average of a little under 50 yards per boot (47.2) after averaging 46.4 yards per punt in 2019. That ought to flip the field position.
Rick Lovato took over for the “Magic Man” Jon Dorenbos in 2017. He’ll be the team’s long snapper again for the 2020 regular season campaign and postseason run if there is one. Eagles fans everywhere are hoping that there is. A second-straight division title and a fourth-straight playoff appearance aren’t going to upset anyone that calls themselves an Eagles fan.
