After locking up All-Pro left tackle Jason Peters to a long-term deal, the Philadelphia Eagles reportedly are turning their attention to re-signing three other veterans.
The Philadelphia Inquirer reported Wednesday that the wide receiver Riley Cooper and center Jason Kelce were close to agreements on new deals with the Eagles. According to the newspaper, wide receiver Jeremy Maclin also is expected to receive a new contract.
Peters signed a five-year contract worth at least $53 million Wednesday.
According to the Inquirer, Cooper's new contract could be resolved in a few days -- before he would become a free agent on March 11. After an offseason in which he was videotaped using a racial slur at a concert, Cooper apologized and went on to make 47 receptions for 835 yards and eight touchdown. All of the numbers were the best of his four-year career.
Kelce's new deal might be announced as soon as Thursday, the Inquirer reported.
Eagles general manager Howie Roseman told the newspaper, "Without getting into any specifics, (Kelce is) a guy we drafted, a guy we think very highly of, and we talked about it in the offseason, a guy that really kind of fits the culture and the chemistry."
Kelce recently completed his third year out of Cincinnati.
Maclin, who missed the 2013 season after tearing an anterior cruciate ligament last summer, probably will receive a one-year, "show-me" contract, the Inquirer reported.
Over the previous four seasons, Maclin averaged 64.5 receptions for 863 yards and 6.5 touchdowns.
