All of the talk about wide receiver Riley Cooper not playing for the Philadelphia Eagles can now come to an end as CSNPhilly is reporting that the team and Cooper have agreed to a four-year deal, keeping him with the team just before free agency hits.
League source tells me Riley Cooper will sign a 4-year deal tomorrow with Eagles. @Jeff_McLane and PFT reported today that deal was close.

As early as today, the deal was expected to be signed soon as the Eagles saw bringing Cooper back sooner rather than later as a top priority.
In the Eagles’ surge to the playoffs last season, Cooper became an integral part of the Philly passing game, with the chemistry between he and quarterback Nick Foles growing by the week. In all, Cooper grabbed 47 balls last season for 835 yards and eight touchdowns.
With Cooper now coming back, the team’s attention will now turn to bringing back another wideout who missed last season, Jeremy Maclin.
