The Philadelphia Eagles announced that they have signed one of their own, versatile center/guard Stefen Wisniewski, to a three-year deal. Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports has the money details:
Eagles OL Stefen Wisniewski's deal worth close to $9m over 3 years but he can make almost $15m if he hits incentives, source says— Mike Garafolo (@MikeGarafolo) March 10, 2017
Before his arrival in Philadelphia, Wisniewski started 77 games with the Raiders and Jaguars, never once entering a game as a reserve. With the Eagles last season, Wisniewski was a backup for the first time in his career, although he started six games because of injuries/suspensions.
After Wisniewski signed a one-year deal with the team a year ago, he was honest about his intentions.
"I wasn't getting the kind of money I was looking for in a long-term deal, so I kind of wanted to sign a one-year deal and get back to being a free agent again," he said back in April of 2016.
With Brandon Brooks locked in at RG, Allen Barbre having played reasonably well at LG, Isaac Seumalo looking like a potential starter going forward, Chance Warmack just signing a one-year deal, and Jason Kelce still in the mix, Wisniewski's signing comes as something of a surprise.
Back in January, PhillyVoice reported that the Eagles were considering moving on from Kelce. Stay tuned.
