Philadelphia Eagles Extend Todd Herremans Through 2016

Herremans Locked in Through 2013!

The Philadelphia Eagles have given a three-year contract extension through 2016 to hybrid offensive lineman, Todd Herremans.

Todd-Father has been a staple of Philadelphia’s offensive line for the past six seasons, and has arguably been the most consistent and talented of all starters during his tenure. He has been used as a tackle, guard, and even a tight end in several formations, and is easily the most versatile lineman Philadelphia has. He seamlessly meshed with two rookie lineman, Jason Kelce and Danny Watkins, the Eagles drafted last season, and he developed and immediate chemistry with both of them.

Herremans still had two-years remaining on his contract, but Philadelphia still elected to extend him long-term. His presence on the team, and his talent on the offensive line, is really unmatched in Philadelphia and he is a great player to have locked in for the future. This move, as a whole, is a smart extension and one of the better moves by the Eagles’ front office in recent memory.

The Eagles star lineman will likely earn somewhere in the ballpark of $21 million, with at least $11 million guaranteed over those three extended years.

While the rest of the NFL is sucked into the free agency frenzy that just kicked off, the Eagles are taking care of matters at home first and foremost — a big change from last season. Herremans is only the first of a likely series of players that will either receive extensions or will be released by the team as Philadelphia looks to re-tool and re-load for the 2012 season.
