Just before the start of free agency, the Philadelphia Eagles announced a move not related to a free agent. The Eagles signed OT Todd Herremans, 29, to a 3-year extension, taking his contract with the Birds through 2016.
Most of us were expecting that signing Evan Mathis, now a free agent, would have been the first move on the o-line taken by Philadelphia, but the Birds wanted to express thanks for consistently strong performance from Herremans.
Head coach Andy Reid said,
“We are excited to be able to sign Todd to a new contract. Todd’s intelligence, toughness, durability, and leadership are second to none. Very few players in the NFL can play at an extremely high level at both the guard and tackle positions and Todd has done that for us. He has been a big part of the success of our offense over the last several years.”
