Another potential Eagles wide receiver target is off the market, as the Dolphins and Kenny Stills have agreed to a contract extension, per Rand Getlin.
I'm told WR Kenny Stills has agreed to terms with the #Dolphins. Awesome outcome for both parties.— Rand Getlin (@Rand_Getlin) March 9, 2017
Ian Rapoport has the contract details:
The #Dolphins are re-signing WR Kenny Stills to a 4 year contract worth $32M, source said. He gets $20M guaranteed.— Ian Rapoport (@RapSheet) March 9, 2017
Stills will be just 25 when the season starts, which is young for a free agent. After two years in New Orleans, the first of which he led the league in yards per reception, he was traded to the Dolphins, where he’s caught 69 passes for 16.9 yards per reception and 12 touchdowns in two seasons.
The Eagles had been favored to sign Stills two weeks ago, but there hadn’t been much reported about any interest they had since then. Earlier at least three other teams were thought to be seeking Stills, but no specifics on which team were offered.
This could start a run on the wide receiver market, with one starting caliber speedster off the market, the Eagles efforts to land Brandin Cooks might be intensified.
