Eagles re-sign OLB Brandon Graham to four-year deal

Monday March 9th, 2015

The Philadelphia Eagles have re-signed outside linebacker Brandon Graham to a four-year deal, the team announced Monday.

The deal was first reported by NFL.com's Ian Rapoport.

Rapoport reported Graham's deal is worth up to $26 million, with $14 million guaranteed. Graham, 26, was drafted No. 13 out of Michigan by the Eagles in 2010. He played in all 16 games last season, recording a career-high 46 tackles, 5.5 sacks and four fumbles forced.

Last week, the team released outside linebacker Trent Cole, clearing a path for Graham to be a starter.

According to reports, the Dolphins, Titans and Giants had all shown interest in signing Graham.

The Eagles have let a number of veterans go leading up to free agency, including cornerback Cary Williams and guard Todd Herremans. The team also reportedly dealt Pro Bowl running back LeSean McCoy to Buffalo for linebacker Kiko Alonso in a deal that will become official this week.
