Cole played under the RFA tender last year and his agent had been hoping for a multiyear deal.

The Eagles went into free agency with 10 restricted free agents.

Fullback Leonard Weaver and Jason Avant signed extensions. The remaining six players have not yet signed their tenders: cornerback Ellis Hobbs (first round), linebacker Omar Gaither (fifth), guard Max Jean-Gilles (fourth round), linebacker Chris Gocong (third) and punter Sav Rocca (no compensation but the right to match). Tight end Alex Smith was not tendered.

 Jordan, 24, set a career high with 82 tackles in 2009 despite only playing in 12 games (ten starts). He also notched his first career sack and became the first Eagles linebacker to post two interceptions in a season since Ike Reese did so in 2004.
