The Eagles got things rolling today before free agency kicks off later this afternoon by locking up Todd Herremans to a 3-year extension that keeps him in Philadelphia through 2016.
Andy Reid issued a statement on the versatile Herremans, "Todd’s intelligence, toughness, durability, and leadership are second to none. Very few players in the NFL can play at an extremely high level at both the (G) and (T) positions and Todd has done that for us."
As Roob noted on Twitter, a smart move by the Birds. You'll be seeing him courtside at plenty of Sixers games for years to come.
Eagles have agreed to three-year contract extension with Todd Herremans. Goes through 2016. Great move!

Todd Herremans did really well after being moved to RT. This extension should cool any thought of Birds pursuing Eric Winston in free agency

The Herremans extension is just the first sign that the Eagles are taking care of some of their in-house issues first.
