The roster-building process continued for the Eagles on Monday as veteran guard/center Stefen Wisniewski signed a one-year deal to return for a fourth season in Philadelphia.
Over the past three years, Wisniewski played in 51 regular-season and playoff games for the Eagles. He was the starter at left guard for the Super Bowl run in the 2017, when the Eagles' offensive line was named the best in the league at the NFL Honors ceremony. Last year, Wisniewski opened the season as the starter at left guard for the first four games then returned to that role for the final three regular-season contests due to injury. The Eagles were 5-2 in those seven games in 2018.
By bringing back Wisniewski, the Eagles secured quality insurance for center Jason Kelce and left guard Isaac Seumalo, who both received contract extensions this offseason. The Eagles' offensive line, ranked fifth by Pro Football Focus in 2018, also added first-round pick Andre Dillard this offseason.
The 30-year-old Wisniewski has 104 career regular-season and playoff starts under his belt at center and left guard. Originally a second-round pick of the Raiders in 2011 out of Penn State, Wisniewski started all 61 games he appeared in between 2011-14. He spent one season in Jacksonville, where he suited up as the starting center for all 16 games.
Rookie free agent Nico Evans was waived to make room for Wisniewski on the roster.
