Report: Eagles and Cooper closing in on new deal


According to Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer, an NFL source has told him that the Eagles and wide receiver Riley Cooper are close on a new contract to bring back the four-year veteran.

Via McLane:

The multi-year deal could be struck and announced in the next few days. Cooper, who was drafted by the Eagles in the fifth round of the 2010 draft, is slated to become a free agent on March 11.

If a deal is in fact struck, the Eagles next move would likely be signing Jeremy Maclin to a one-year contract. Maclin is coming off an ACL tear.

Cooper notched 835 receiving yards last year, the highest of his career.
