Sapp Is In With A Four-Year Deal

And Ricky Sapp makes six.

The Eagles announced on Tuesday afternoon that they have agreed to terms with the 6-4, 252-pound Sapp on a four-year contract. Sapp was selected in the fifth round of the 2010 draft from Clemson.

With Sapp in the fold, the Eagles now have six of their league-high 13 draft picks under contract - Sapp, cornerback Trevard Lindley, running back Charles Scott, linebacker Jamar Chaney, defensive tackle Jeff Owens and safety Kurt Coleman. Lindley, a fourth-round selection, is the highest of the Eagles' picks to sign thus far.

Sapp played in 50 games (36 starts) at Clemson, while recording 142 tackles, 17.5 sacks and two forced fumbles. He finished his career ranked 15th on the school's all-time list with 38 tackles for a loss. Sapp garnered second-team All-ACC honors as a senior in 2009 after starting in all 14 games and totaling five sacks.

A native of Bamberg, SC, Sapp was tabbed as a first-team *USA Today *All-American selection and a second-team EA Sports honoree while attending Bamberg-Ehrhart High School.
