The Eagles are on a mission to lock up their core special teams players. After extending safety Chris Maragos on Thursday afternoon and striking a three-year deal with long snapper Jon Dorenbos on Friday morning, the Eagles have also locked punter Donnie Jones up on a three-year pact. The team confirmed the deal via press release moments ago.
Jones is in his fourth season with the Eagles. So far this year, Jones has booted 38 punts for a net average of 39.7 yards. That’s a below-average mark in the NFL, but the Eagles are obviously happy with his work. He’s now slated to be a part of the team through 2019 with Dorenbos and Maragos. Kicker Caleb Sturgis got an extension of his own in September, but that deal only carries him through the 2017 season.
