Cooper and Kelce sign extensions with Eagles

PHILADELPHIA - The Eagles signed pro bowl offensive tackle Jason Peters to a four-year extension Wednesday. The Birds went right back to work Thursday agreeing to new deals with wide receiver Riley Cooper and center Jason Kelce.

Cooper's deal is for five years and $25 million, completing an up and down year for the wideout.

Cooper was caught on video using a racial slur last summer. He apologized to his team mates and was fined by the team.

Cooper responded on the field with 47 catches for more than 800 yards and eight touchdowns.

As for Kelce, its six years and $37.5 million, putting him among the league's top five centers in average salary.

Kelce has started every game for which he has been available. He returned as the anchor of the O-line last year following an ACL tear in 2012.
