Eagles Sign Kevin Kolb to One-Year Extension

Written By Bob Cunningham On Thursday, April 29, 2010

It's official: the Eagles have locked down Kevin Kolb.

It couldn't have been any longer because of the goofy rules in an uncapped season, but the Eagles did what they could and signed quarterback Kevin Kolb to a one-year extension that will pay him a guaranteed $12.25 million over the next two seasons.

Every penny of that figure is guaranteed regardless of performance or any other factor, which was really the only way they could come close to paying him starter money in this new circumstance.

It's likely that he'll receive a long-term deal once a salary cap is back in place, but this is good enough for right now. Both sides appear happy with the deal and now the Birds can move forward without this big pink elephant in the room.

"We're happy to have Kevin under contract for the next two seasons," said head coach Andy Reid. "When given the chance, Kevin has proven to have good command of this offense and we’re looking forward to having him operate as the number one quarterback for the Philadelphia Eagles."

"We're excited about what we've seen from Kevin during his three seasons in Philadelphia both on and off the field," said GM Howie Roseman. "We're happy to get this contract in place for the near future and are looking forward to keeping Kevin in Philadelphia for many more years to come."
