Eagles Have an Active First Day of Free Agency

The Philadelphia Eagles are mixing things up from last off-season, with this year putting a heavy focus on re-signing and making in-house changes before looking towards the free agent market. Yesterday, the Eagles handed Todd Herremans a three-year extension, and the team continued the trend today, signing and extending several other players, and also making a small trade.

Trent Cole Extended Through 2017 

Trent Cole, much like Herremans, still had time remaining on his contract, but the Eagles showed loyalty by giving the Pro-Bowl defensive end a four-year extension. Last season, Cole was one of the few bright spots on an all around bad defense, hauling in 11 sacks. The combo of Jason Babin and Cole was as good as advertised, and the Eagles clearly want to keep the two working together moving forward.

This move likely will keep the 29 year-old Cole a career long Eagle, and hopefully his production will stay as solid as ever. His extension is expected to be somewhere in the $53 million range, with $15 million guaranteed.
