Eagles Sign C/G Nick Cole To One-Year Deal

The Eagles signed G/C Nick Cole to a one-year contract.   Cole is currently the starting center.  He took over for Jamaal Jackson when he suffered an ACL tear.Cole had been a restricted free agent.

He showed he’s capable of starting but at the right guard spot but didn’t have a lot of success against Cowboys Pro Bowl nose tackle Jay Ratliff in the last two games of the season against Dallas.

Originally a rookie free agent signing of the Eagles in 2006, Cole (6-0, 350) has since seen action in every game in his four-year career, appearing in 64 regular season contests (22 starts) and six playoff games (four starts).

A versatile and tough offensive lineman, the 25-year-old Cole started in every game in 2009 at three different positions (nine at right guard, six at left guard, and two at center).

A three-year starter at New Mexico State, Cole notched a school-record 40 straight starts at both guard and tackle. The Lawton, OK, native attended Eisenhower High School, where he earned all-state honors at left guard as a senior.

  • Effective and useful young player, good to have him back considering how many holes this team is developing. It’s kind of surprising they don’t sign him to a longer deal with as much money as possible in the uncapped year.

  • Read the tea leaves

    looks like pouncey in round 1

  • You might be right. Jackson should be working out but won’t be anything close to game shape by opening day.

  • Cole plays 1st month of season at Center (then Jackson returns at Center) then Cole moves over to
    RG to replace an ineffective Stacey Andrews… Eagles draft CB/S/LB with 1st 3 picks and
    then draft a Center in the 4th Rd (#105 or #121 pick) and grab either Center M Tennant from Boston College or Center JD Walton from Baylor would be my plan
