By all accounts, the only question regarding a new contract for Eagles coach Andy Reid is when it will be completed.
And according to ESPN’s Sal Paolantonio, negotiations have already begun.
Reid’s agent, Bob LaMonte, would not confirm that fact to Paolantonio, but LaMonte did confirm that Reid and Eagles owner Jeff Lurie and team president Joe Banner “have a very close relationship and they want that to continue.”
Reid’s contract doesn’t expire until the end of the 2010 season, but the two sides seem eager to avoid him entering the final year of his deal as a “lame duck” coach.
“[Reid] told me he loves Philadelphia and wants to stay,” LaMonte said.
