Eagles announce new deals for Jason Kelce and Riley Cooper


In many precincts, the lag between the Scouting Combine and the start of free agency has caused progress on new deals to be slow.

Not in Philadelphia.

Already this morning, the team has confirmed new (and expected) contracts for center Jason Kelce (a seven-year deal which takes him through 2020) and wide receiver Riley Cooper (a five-year deal through 2018).

All this comes after signing left tackle Jason Peters to an extension, which means all five starting offensive linemen are under contract through at least 2016, and the offense has a chance to build on some promising results from last year.

Kelce’s just the second member of the 2011 draft class to sign an extension, following Raiders special teamer Taiwan Jones.

    Sounds like their plan this year is keeping the offensive pieces in place, maybe adding a WR in the draft, and focusing on the defense in FA and the draft.

    Plan for Rest of Offseason:
    1) Sign Maclin
    2) Draft DEFENSE
    3) Replace Jason Avant with a cheap receiver

    Sign Donnie Jones already! Give Maclin the one year deal he’s asking for and if he has a great season then resign him to a fair deal. He’s never put up elite numbers so he shouldn’t get a crazy contract. He’s been banking on potential since he’s been drafted.

    I think to say he’s been banking on potential since he’s been drafted is a stretch. He’s had health issue, but when he’s been healthy, he’s been productive. When he’s been healthy and Vick isn’t his QB, he’s been very productive (the number don’t lie, he has much better numbers with Foles/Kolb than he does with Vick)

    Maclin doesn’t have Jackson’s speed, but his route running is much better. Jackson is more likely to burn a guy deep for 50 yards, but Maclin is morel likely to take a 5 yard slant into a 50 yard gain. He could very well out perform Jackson if they both are healthy in Chips offense.
