LeSean McCoy Signs Five-Year Extension With Eagles

It appears the Philadelphia Eagles have learned their lesson from last season’s DeSean Jackson mess.

As it turns out, they may have Jackson to thank in part for their latest maneuver. 

The Eagles inked McCoy to a five-year extension worth $45 million, including $20 million guaranteed.

Days prior to the signing, Jackson advised McCoy to not follow his example from 2011. Instead, Jackson told his teammate not to hold out during training camp.

McCoy’s deal means the Eagles will avoid significant training camp drama over their star runner’s contract.

The Pitt Panthers running back led the NFL with 20 total touchdowns including 17 rushing scores (also tops in the league) in 2011.
