Eagles Sign Star Devonta Smith To 3-Year, $75M Contract Extension

Devonta Smith

The Philadelphia Eagles have signed one of their best offensive players to a contract extension.

Star wide receiver DeVonta Smith has agreed to a 3-year contract extension with the Eagles, the team announced on Monday. Philadelphia also exercised the fifth-year option on Smith’s rookie contract.

The Eagles drafted Smith with the 10th overall pick in 2021. He had two years remaining on his rookie deal, so the extension will tie him to the Eagles through 2028. Smith’s new deal is worth $75 million over three years with $51 million guaranteed, according to multiple reports.

Judge Rules Grizzlies' Ja Morant Acted In Self-Defense Against Teen

Judge Rules Grizzlies’ Ja Morant Acted In Self-Defense Against Teen

 

Ja Morant 

In a win for Ja Morant, a Tennessee judge ruled Monday that the Memphis Grizzlies superstar fairly raised self-defense in a lawsuit filed by a teenager he punched in July 2022, according to a court filing obtained by ESPN.

The ruling comes after a December 2023 civil immunity hearing in Memphis, where Morant testified that he “swung first” at Joshua Holloway, then 17, to protect himself during an altercation that led to Holloway filing a September 2022 lawsuit accusing Morant of assault.

The altercation came about during a pickup basketball game. Holloway, allegedly frustrated by losing several games, was accused of throwing a one-handed pass at Morant during a check-ball situation.

The ball hit Morant in the face, after which Morant said Holloway took a step toward him and that he then stepped forward and punched Holloway.

After that blow, Morant’s friend, Davonte Pack, punched Holloway — an act for which Pack was later arrested for misdemeanor assault. The charge against Pack was later dismissed.
