The Eagles today made a solid signing, as they re-signed cornerback Joselio Hanson to a five-year contract, getting the deal done before he was scheduled to hit the open market next week as a free agent. The team announced the signing late Friday night. While financial terms were not officially disclosed, NFL.com has reported that the deal is worth $21 million.
A former undrafted free agent out of Texas Tech, Hanson has secured a spot in the Eagles’ regular rotation as a nickel back, even making eight starts over the last three seasons. Hanson was originally picked up in 2004 by the San Francisco 49ers. He spent one season with the Niners and one in NFL Europa before latching on with the Eagles prior to the 2006 campaign. In four NFL seasons, he has posted 145 tackles, three sacks, one interception and 27 passes defended.
