Eagles WR DeVonta Smith Is Right Where He Wants To Be

Philadelphia Eagles WR DeVonta Smith signed a three-year, $75 million deal with $51 million guaranteed earlier this offseason. The Eagles exercised his fifth-year option for 2025, also.

Since Smith has signed, may wide receivers have signed huge contracts. He was asked yesterday, if he had any regrets about signing before the big deals were done.

“No, man. No. You can’t be counting the pockets of others,” he said Tuesday, as per Bleeding Green Nation. “I’m where I want to be. This is where I wanted to be, and at the end of the day, it was still life-changing for me.

“Those guys who have got their deals, they deserve it — great players and great people. At the end of the day, we’re all blessed.”

Smith was the tenth overall pick of the 2021 NFL draft by the Eagles and he has delivered big time.

The 25 year-old Smith has 240 catches for 3,178 yards and 19 touchdowns for his career. He helped lead the Eagles to a NFC championship in 2022 and to the Super Bowl, where they were defeated by the Kansas City Chiefs 38-35.

Smith set the Eagles rookie record for most receiving yards in a single season with 916 yards. In 2022, he led the team in catches with 95 and has had over 1,000 yards receiving the last two years.

Smith and A.J. Brown give the Eagles, possibly the best wide receiver duo in the NFL. Brown received a new deal himself this past offseason too.

DeVonta Smith is a talented and classy individual. He has been everything the Eagles could have hoped for when they drafted him.
