On Saturday, the Eagles awarded him for his efforts with a massive contract extension.

Jeffery's contract will have $27 million guaranteed and the deal can ultimately be worth $56 million with additional incentives. Not only is Jeffery putting up some solid numbers himself, but his presence has also opened up opportunities for the other receivers on the field.

Nebraska reportedly hiring UCF's Scott Frost as new head coach
Riley spent three seasons as the head football coach in Lincoln and finished with a 19-19 record in his three years at the helm. The 42-year-old Frost will look to help NU return to dominant form. "That's what we've done", Frost said.

The Eagles originally signed Jeffery to a one-year deal back in March, but the 27-year-old has been so impressive that the franchise has made a decision to extend him for the long haul. He has seven touchdowns, five of which have come in the last four games. The six-year pro has hauled in 43 receptions for 619 yards and seven touchdowns on a team that's gone 10-1 and sitting atop the NFC East.

That 7th touchdown reception on Sunday triggered a $250,000 payday and he could earn an additional $250,000 a piece with his 9th and 11th touchdowns.

Israeli settler shoots dead Palestinian in West Bank
However, al-Jazeera said the Palestinian crowd only began throwing stones in reaction to Oudeh being shot. A 48 year-old man, named by Palestinian media as Mahmoud Ahmad Zaal Odeh, was killed.

Jeffery signed a one-year, $14 million contract with the Eagles in March. They signed Tim Jernigan to a four-year deal on November 9. The biggest reason for that, of course, has been the stellar play of MVP candidate Carson Wentz, but certainly, a far better wide receiving corps has helped, led by Jeffery. "We place a priority on making sure we are able to build the team around quality players like Alshon who embrace this team and this city the way he has". The 2014 Pro Bowl wideout ranks eighth in the National Football League with 4,801 receiving yards since 2013. Philadelphia won't have much cap space next offseason barring a restructure of Jason Peters' deal, but they're clearly a team on the rise.

"Winning championships, that's most important to me", Jeffery said.
