Report: Riley Cooper will sign four-year deal with Eagles

Riley Cooper AP

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.

    Time heals all. Good #2-3 I suppose.

    Maclin is next. If all three stay healthy (DJAX, Maclin, Cooper), that’s a SCARY wide receiving core for Foles to throw to next year. Throw in a solid O-Line and this offense is top 5 in the league.

    This probably helps give the Eagles a little leverage with Maclin if they are trying to keep him. Teams are not as likely to pay a lot of money to him coming off the injury. The Eagles could argue that they are solid at the receiving positions and Maclin could either work with them or sign with another team.

    Awesome.

    Maclin to the Redskins now to show the Eagles they made a huge mistake and signed the wrong wr to be their #2

    I would’ve thought he’d be a fit in Arizona.

    Monster o-line, all-world running back, and a franchise QB who has Coop, Djax, Celek, Ertz and hopefully Maclin to throw to. Now to sign or tag Donnie Jones, get a better kicker, and build that D.

    Sounds good!

    My Eagles will win the Super Bowl next year . Book it !

    It will be interesting to see what the money is, and how many years are functionally guaranteed. If it’s around $6 million per year (or more) I don’t love it. Something more like $4 million per would be good. Likewise I wouldn’t love being committed more than 2 years on a guy who has had one good season. We’ll see.

    Kelce is the next priority. Maclin would be a luxury at this point.

    Go play for Andy Reid again. He dis play college ball in Missouri.

    A four year contract should be able to pay for a lot of concert tickets.

    that drop against the Saints, tough..

  17. stateofthesport says: Feb 27, 2014 8:29 AM

    If they resign Maclin i say awesome that Cooper is there, but if they choose to to resign Maclin this is a big mistake, as Maclin is by and far superior to Cooper,,but the Eagles have to work on defense big time, or all these moves are not going to get them to a Super bowl ,, cant wait to see our Eagle’s play this year,

    jmac will sign a 1 yr deal also, soon!

  19. flylikearaven88 says: Feb 27, 2014 8:49 AM

    Now to fix up that swiss cheese Defense they have.

  20. kastout11 says: Feb 27, 2014 9:10 AM

    I thought Cooper would walk. Maclin will be signed by the end of the week. Imagine the offensive weapons on that team. Two excellent patch catching TE’s, one of the top 3 RB’s in the NFL, three excellent WR’s and the best OL in the division. I doubt Foles TD-INT ratio will be like it was this past year, but he should have an amazing year, provided he stays healthy. Now they need to get a safety. TJ Ward would be a nice start.

    With Cooper making $5mil per year, I wonder if Avant is done in Philly. The Eagles would save $3mil against the cap by cutting him.

    Good for him. The political correctness police didn’t do him in, even though they tried mightily. :)
