It's Official: Weaver, Eagles Agree To Three-Year Deal

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.'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.
