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

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

riley-cooper-fight-philadelphia-eagles-giPhiladelphia Eagles:

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 injury 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.

  • Resigned DL Chris Baker to a three year contract after resigning DeAngelo Hall back on FEB 19th (Dez is smiling somewhere)
  • Are trying to decide if they want to put the franchise tag on OLB Brian Orakpo.
  • TE Fred Davis decided that he was going to celebrate his suspension for violating the league’s substance abuse policy by going out and getting charged with a DWI – Source: Redskins TE Fred Davis Charged With Driving While Intoxicated

Way to go Fred!

New York Giants:

  • Decided to add a year to Head Coach 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 NFC East is already buzzing. Except in Dallas…
