The club announced extensions for wide receiver Riley Cooper and center Jason Kelce Thursday morning, less than a day after they extended left tackle Jason Peters five seasons.
The Cooper deal could be worth up to$25 million, though the details have yet to be released. Cooper emerged as one of quarterback Nick Foles' favorite targets last season and will join DeSean Jackson as a one-two punch, with Jeremy Maclin's fate yet to be determined.
Jason Kelcesigns a six-year extension is worth $37.5 million, with $13 million guaranteed, according to a league source. If he earns the entire amount allocated in the deal, its maximum value is $40.1 million. The $6.25 million per season he would earn would make Kelce one of the top-five paid centers in the NFL.
Ironically, the three extended Eagles took low key routes to the NFL. One was an undrafted free agent (Peters), one a fifth round pick (Cooper) and one a sixth round pick (Kelce) respectively.
Both deals will become official in a news conference this afternoon.
