BUZZ: NFC East Active As The Start To Free Agency Looms

With the NFL’s period due to start soon, I wanted to take a look at the East over the last week and explore some early activity.

The Iggles locked up two of their starting O-Lineman for the next few years signing LT Jason Peters and C Jason Kelce.

  • 32 year old Peters agreed to a 5 year deal worth $51.3 million with over $19 million guaranteed
  • Philly inked Kelce to a 6 year extension at $37.5 million with $13 million guaranteed.

Earlier the talk was about which WR was the team going to keep – Riley Cooper or Jeremy Maclin.

  • Cooper had a career year (also very controversial year) in 2013
  • Maclin is coming off a knee that kept him out the entire season

But the team decided both were worth keeping around and inked Cooper to a 5 year $25 million dollar deal and Maclin signed a one year deal worth $6 million, with $3.5 guaranteed.

New York Giants:

  • Decided to add a year to Tom Coughlin’s deal after all, which will take him through the 2015 season
  • Could be in the market for a new WR via Free Agency or the Draft because Hakeem Nicks might hit the open market come March 11th

With more than a week to go before Free Agency begins, three-quarters of the is already buzzing. Except in Dallas…

What do you think?
