According to Eric Edholm of ProFootballWeekly.com, there’s a good chance the Philadelphia Eagles will soon sign both wide receiver Jeremy Maclin and cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromarite to contract extensions.
DRC’s contract is up after this season and Maclin’s is scheduled to expire at the end of the 2013 season.
Eagles general manager Howie Roseman hinted at the possibility that both players will get taken care of soon.
“We are going to be a draft-and-develop type of team that tries to retain as many of our own players as we can,” Roseman said. “We tried to do that in the offseason with Todd and Evan and DeSean Jackson and LeSean McCoy, and I think that’s going to be the model for the foreseeable future.”
