Unlike a lot of teams leading up to the NFL Free Agency period, the Philadelphia Eagles are not letting the market dictate what happens with their free agents. Shortly after it was announced that the team had come to terms with offensive tackle Justin Peters, it has been reported that Riley Cooper, Jeremy Maclin and Jason Kelce are all next.

 


Cooper and Maclin were expected to add to a pretty nice crop of free agent wide receivers this offseason. It appears now that more teams will be looking to an equally impressive draft class to fill that need.

The extension for Kelce was originally reported by Jeff Mclane of philly.com.

With Jason Peters’ contract extension complete, the Eagles are expected to focus their attention on locking Jason Kelce up with a long-term deal sometime in the very near future. The announcement could come as early as Thursday morning with a press conference in the afternoon, according to sources close to Kelce.
