Eagles re-sign CB Hobbs and LB Gocong

The Birds have re-signed cornerback Ellis Hobbs and linebacker Chris Gocong to one-year contracts. Both players were restricted free agents, and each signed his tender offer, the team announced Tuesday.

Hobbs was acquired from New England last year. He played in eight games before a neck injury ended his first season in Philadelphia. Hobbs averaged 24.1 yards on 20 kickoff returns.

Gocong, a third-round pick by the Eagles in 2006, has recorded 203 tackles, four sacks and one forced fumble in 47 regular-season games, including 35 starts.
