• Jason Kelce, Riley Cooper sign new deals with Eagles

    Summary of 8 articles · Updated Feb 28, 2014
    The Philadelphia Eagles agreed to a five-year contract with receiver Riley Cooper and a seven-year deal with center Jason Kelce. The Eagles continued locking up their own players on Thursday when they officially re-signed center Jason Kelce to a six-year contract extension and gave wide receiver Riley Cooper a new five-year deal. Along with left tackle Jason Peters, Kelce and Cooper are the second and third players that Eagles management has locked up this week. For Kelce, the decision was simple. Cooper would have become a free agent next month. The deal runs through 2020, meaning Kelce did not just bypass his first chance at free agency in 2015 but also the potential for another contract during his prime. Instead of having to explain how and why he was captured on video dropping a racial slur at a concert, and convince new coaches and teammates that he's really a decent guy, Cooper remains with the one team that has already dealt with and moved on from the incident.
