As the deadline for signing offer sheets creeps closer, restricted free agents who have yet to get a serious sniff from other teams are now choosing to ink their deals.
The latest? Eagles cornerback Ellis Hobbs and linebacker Chris Gocong. The team announced the moves earlier today.
The Eagles had tendered Hobbs at the first-round level. Gocong was tendered at the third-round level.
Gocong, a third-round pick in 2006, started 11 games in 2009 and 12 in 2008. Hobbs had been a consistent starter in New England before being traded to Philly last year. In 2009, he appeared in only eight games.
