Australian NFL star Jordan Mailata has taken his earnings further in to the stratosphere signing a three-year mega extension set to earn him $100 million.

Mailata and the Philadelphia Eagles agreed on the extension which will take him through to the end of the 2028 season with new earnings of $33 million a season.

It will be a significant boost to his current $24 million a season deal which still has two years to run, and dwarfs the $13 million, three-year-deal Aussie punter Cameron Johnston recently signed with the Pittsburgh Steelers.

The former South Sydney NRL junior is now the fourth-highest paid left tackle in the NFL, cementing his standing in the competition despite the 27-year-old not yet making the Pro Bowl.

It also caps a stunning ride for Mailata who didn’t play in a single game in his first two NFL seasons on the Eagles roster before starting 10 games in 2020 and then beat out first-round pick Andre Dillard in 2021 to be the Eagles’ starting left tackle.

In the past three seasons, Mailata has started 47 games and was part of the Philadelphia outfit which lost th2 2023 Super Bowl.
