Eagles receiver Riley Cooper won’t be going anywhere in free agency.
Instead, Cooper will sign a four-year contract with the Eagles on Thursday, Geoff Mosher of CSNPhilly.com reports.
We noted today that Cooper is a high priority for the Eagles, and that a deal was expected to be close, so this news comes as no surprise. The Eagles wanted Cooper to stay, and Cooper wanted to stay, and so a deal is done two weeks before free agency begins.
Cooper looked like a good fit in Chip Kelly’s offense last season, finishing the year with career highs in catches (47), yards (835) and touchdowns (8). Now the Eagles expect that he’ll be a big part of Kelly’s offense for four more years.
