Eagles re-sign Cole


The Eagles announced that they have re-signed guard/center Nick Cole to a 1-year contract. Cole was a restricted free agent.

Cole will make $1.545 million and will be a free agent in 2010 if no new agreement is reached before then. Cole and wideout Hank Baskett, the Birds’ two restricted free agents, were tendered at the so-called midlevel, which would require any other team making them an offer to give the Eagles a second-round draft pick if the Birds declined to match the offer. Baskett has not yet signed his tender but is expected to do so.

Because Cole and Baskett entered the NFL undrafted in 2006, the Eagles had to tender them at least at the midlevel to assure compensation if they signed elsewhere; low-tender compensation is a pick in the round in which the player was drafted.

Cole started the final four regular-season games and all three postseason games last season, replacing the injured Max Jean-Gillies, who was filling in for the injured Shawn Andrews. His strong play at the end of the year could make him a candidate for a starting job on the Eagles' reshuffled offensive line.

Cole, 24, has played in all 53 games at either guard, center or as a blocking back since he joined the Eagles as an undrafted rookie free agent in 2006.
