Philadelphia Eagles Free Agency 2012: Todd Herremans Signs Contract Extension, According To Reports

A few hours before the NFL's Free Agent period officially began Tuesday, the Philadelphia Eagles signed offensive linemen Todd Herremans to a contract extension that will keep him in Philly until 2016, says reports. Herremans, who was drafted and has played for the Eagles since 2005, reportedly signed a three-year extension for $21 million with $11 million being guaranteed.

"We are excited to be able to sign Todd to a new contract," said Eagles head coach Andy Reid. "Todd’s intelligence, toughness, durability, and leadership are second to none. Very few players in the NFL can play at an extremely high level at both the guard and tackle positions and Todd has done that for us. He has been a big part of the success of our offense over the last several years."

Last year, after playing most of his career at guard, Herremans was moved to right tackle when the Eagles lost starter Winston Justice and signed Ryan Harris. During his tenure as an Eagle, Herremans has started in 89 of his 91 games.
