The Eagles tendered three restricted free agents Wednesday, including middle linebacker Stewart Bradley, who started all 12 games he played in 2010. Bradley was tendered at the 2nd round compensation level, meaning that if another team were to sign Bradley to an offer sheet and the Eagles chose not to match that offer, they would receive a 2nd-round pick in return.
Also tendered was offensive guard Max Jean-Gilles, who started 10 games in 2010. Jean-Gilles was tendered at the original pick compensation level, a fourth-rounder. Cornerback Dimitri Patterson, who started nine games in 2010, was tendered as well for the right of first refusal.
Running back Eldra Buckley, a key contributor on special teams for the past two seasons, was also tendered a contract as an exclusive rights free agent.
The Eagles also made an addition to the coaching staff, as Matt Nagy, who previously served as a coaches assistant during the 2010 season, was named offensive quality control coach. Nagy had served as a coaching intern during training camp for the Eagles in 2008 and 2009. Nagy replaces Doug Pederson, who was promoted to quarterbacks coach last month. A star collegiately as a quarterback for the University of Delaware, Nagy played six season in the Arena Football League before entering the coaching ranks.
