The Eagles and safety Chris Maragos have agreed to a three-year contract extension, per a team announcement. Financial details aren’t yet available, but the deal will keep Maragos under Philadelphia’s control through the 2019 campaign.
“His work ethic, team-first attitude, accountability and high character are things he brings to work every single day,” said Eagles executive vice president Howie Roseman.
Maragos, a seven-year veteran who’s in his third season with the Eagles, is solely a factor on special teams. The 29-year-old Maragos has taken the field for just one defensive snap this season, but he has seen action in 79.6 percent of the Eagles’ special teams plays and made a club-high eight tackles. Thanks in part to Maragos, the Eagles’ ST unit is the NFL’s best, per Football Outsiders.
