Yesterday, the Eagles signed Todd Herremans to an extension, and it was reported that Trent Cole and the Eagles were close. Today, it became official.

 “We are excited to be able to sign Trent to a new contract,” said Eagles head coach Andy Reid. “Trent plays the game with a level of tenacity that’s hard to replicate. He’s one of the premier defensive ends in the league. We have always said that when you watch the tape of him, it’s hard to tell the difference between his first play and his last play. He has an unbelievable motor that does not stop. And as good as he is rushing the passer, he is equally as good against the run. His energy is contagious on the field.”

68 sacks in his 7-year career in Philadelphia, Cole knows how to get to the quarterback. He dealt with a calf injury most of last year and still put up 11 sacks.
