Nick Cole became the latest Eagle to sign his restricted free agent tender, giving him a 1-year contract.

Cole, a guard/center, is a potential replacement for injured center Jamaal Jackson, although coach Andy Reid has said he expects Jackson to be back for the start of the regular season. "For the season, I think he'll be OK," Reid said at the owners meetings, adding that Jackson won't be ready for any preseason action.

Cole's agent had been hoping for a long-term contract before the Eagles tendered Cole at the second-round level.

Originally a rookie free agent signing in 2006, Cole has played in 64 regular season contests (22 starts) and six playoff games (four starts). He started in every game in 2009 at three different positions (nine at right guard, six at left guard, and two at center).
