Guard Chance Warmack will be on the Eagles' 53-man roster this year as he signed a one-year extension Saturday through the 2018 season.

"This is a great opportunity. I really appreciate the team and what they do for me and helping me develop my craft as an offensive lineman," Warmack said just moments after putting pen to paper on the new deal.

The Eagles made it a priority this offseason to solidify quarterback Carson Wentz's protection. Warmack, who will turn just 26 in September, provides the Eagles with quality insurance at both guard positions.

"I'm just trying to push myself to do the little things, the extra things. I'm a little bit more vested now, so I know what I've got to do to improve," he said.

The former 10th overall pick was signed by the Eagles back in March after four years with the Tennessee Titans where he started in all 48 career games played. He was the Eagles' backup left guard throughout Training Camp, and also started the preseason opener at right guard after Brandon Brooks suffered an ankle injury.

"It's a blessing to have that much experience at a young age," Warmack said. "I'm just going to continue to learn from great players like J.P. (Jason Peters), (Jason) Kelce, Wiz (Stefen Wisniewski), Lane (Johnson), Brandon Brooks. They have a lot of experience themselves and I'm trying to get as much information as I can and be a sponge so I can be a better player."

Warmack signed with the Eagles to reunite with his college position coach in Jeff Stoutland. At Alabama, Warmack was a part of three National Championship teams. He played 45 games and started 40 at left guard for the Crimson Tide earning first-team All-America and All-SEC honors as a senior in 2012.
