It's Official: Weaver, Eagles Agree To Three-Year Deal
 
March 5, 2010 | Last Updated: 3/5/10 1:56 PM ET | Comments (4)

The Eagles officially announced that they have agreed to terms on a three-year deal with fullback Leonard Weaver, which confirms reports from earlier today.

Weaver is at the NovaCare Complex and will meet the media at 4 PM to discuss his new deal.

Citing reports from earlier in the day, Weaver's deal is the highest-ever for a fullback.

"Eagles agree to 3 year, $10-plus mil deal with FB Leonard Weaver, highest ever for a FB. More than half deal is guaranteed," tweeted NFL Network's Jason La Canfora.

Scout.com's Adam Caplan followed up with more information, tweeting "Eagles and Leonard Weaver reached 3-year, $11 million deal, $6.5 million guaranteed source said. Beats Greg Jones' deal 2 years ago."

Weaver, who was a restricted free agent, was tendered at the second-round level last night, but continued to chip away at a long-term deal.

An unrestricted free agent last year, Weaver signed a one-year deal with the Eagles and had a career-high 323 rushing yards to go along with 140 receiving yards and four total touchdowns, which also was a career high. A rookie free agent tight end out of Carson-Newman, Weaver converted to fullback and spent the first four years of his NFL career in Seattle.

Happy for Weave and glad to get this deal done and out of the way. But wont get too excited until we improve our roster instead of maintaining what we already had last year. I hope this is not the biggest news we get during Free Agency
