Teammates Celebrate Cooper, Kelce Deals

Philadelphia Eagles inked multi-year deals with two more members of the offensive core on Thursday, signing wide receiver Riley Cooper for five years and center Jason Kelce for seven. Much like All-Pro tackle Jason Peters, who was signed through 2018 on Wednesday morning, teammates took to social media to congratulate both former Eagles draft picks.

Pretty cool thinking about Kelce walking on as a LB at UC and the deal he just inked with the Eagles. The dude definitely deserves it. — Connor Barwin (@ConnorBarwin98) February 27, 2014

... while the deals made a fellow teammate's stomach rumble with hunger:

The long-term contracts brought smiles to Kelce and Cooper, who remembered to thank an important part of the team: Philadelphia and Eagles Nation.
