  • Eagles' Avonte Maddox: Signs contract extension

    Maddox signed a three-year, $22.5 million contract extension with the Eagles on Saturday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

    Maddox has spent the first four years of his career in Philadelphia and will now be under contract with the team through the 2024 campaign. He's totaled 48 tackles (31 solo), 0.5 sacks, an interception and two forced fumbles to begin the season.

  • Eagles' Avonte Maddox: Will be available Sunday

    Maddox (knee) doesn't have an injury designation heading into Sunday's matchup against the Broncos, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.

    Maddox was a full participant in Friday's practice and will be available Sunday after his injury designation was removed. He will likely assume his usual slot corner role against Denver in Week 10.

  • Eagles' Avonte Maddox: Limited practice Thursday

    Maddox (knee) was a limited participant at Thursday's practice.

    The cornerback suffered the knee injury in Week 9 against the Chargers, but his return to practice is a step in the right direction for his availability for Sunday against the Broncos. Maddox's participation in Friday's practice will provide additional clarity to the situation. If he can't go in Week 10, Josiah Scott and Zech McPhearson would likely take on larger roles in the Eagles' secondary.

  • Eagles' Avonte Maddox: Doesn't practice Wednesday

    Maddox (knee) was a nonparticipant at Wednesday's practice, Tim McManus of ESPN.com reports.

    Maddox returned to Sunday's loss to the Chargers after suffering the knee injury, but the issue is apparently still bothersome a few days later. The 25-year-old may need to practice in some capacity Thursday or Friday in order to have a chance of playing Week 10.

  • Eagles' Avonte Maddox: Questionable to return Sunday

    Maddox (knee) is questionable to return to Sunday's contest against the Chargers.

    Maddox suffered a knee injury during the first quarter of the Eagles' Week 9 matchup with the Chargers. If he is unable to return, Zech McPhearson will be Philly's only healthy backup cornerback behind Darius Slay and Steven Nelson for the remainder of the contest.

  • Eagles' Avonte Maddox: Returns to Sunday's contest

    Maddox (knee) has returned to Sunday's contest against the Chargers, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports.

    Maddox injured his knee in the first quarter of the Eagles' Week 9 matchup, but he has returned to the contest. He will reclaim his role as Philly's slot corner -- which had gone to strong safety Andre Chachere during his absence -- for the remainder of Sunday's game.

  • Eagles' Avonte Maddox: Picked on in win

    Maddox put up eight tackles (three assisted) and defended a pass in Sunday's 32-6 win over Atlanta.

    Maddox played 45 of 72 total snaps as the Eagles' nickel corner. He'll likely see a lot of opportunities to rack up stats this season as opposing quarterbacks look to avoid Darius Slay.

  • Eagles' Avonte Maddox: Competition for starting job

    Maddox will compete with the recently signed Steven Nelson for a spot at corner opposite Darius Slay, Dave Spadaro of the Eagles' official site reports.

    Maddox originally looked set to reprise his 2020 role opposite Slay despite ranking as one of the worst corners in the league, but now Nelson is in the mix as well. As a result of the 25-year-old Maddox's poor play, there had been rumors of a move to nickel corner all offseason, so he should retain a job of some sort no matter how things play out with Nelson in camp.

  • Eagles' Avonte Maddox: Struggles in Year 3

    Maddox (knee) had 40 tackles (36 solo) and three defensed passes through 10 games in 2020.

    Maddox showed potential as a rookie back in 2018, but he's since endured back-to-back injury-shortened campaigns. Moving to the outside in 2020 also didn't prove helpful for the 5-foot-9 cornerback, who opposing teams picked on whenever he was active. In all, Maddox allowed a 67.4 percent completion rate when targeted, and he's now gone two straight years without an interception. Maddox will need to focus on bouncing back in 2021, the final year of his rookie deal, so it's worth noting that new defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon was best known for his work with defensive backs during his time in Indianapolis.
