Eagles sign defensive end Te'o-Nesheim

Posted: June 17, 2010

The flurry of Eagles signings continues.

The team agreed to a 4-year contract with defensive end Daniel Te'o-Nesheim yesterday, meaning 10 of their 13 draft picks have signed with nearly 6 weeks left until training camp.

The unsigned picks are first-round defensive end Brandon Graham, second-round defensive back Nate Allen and fifth-round wide receiver Riley Cooper.

Eagles general manager Howie Roseman and Cooper's agent, Joel Segal, say there is no problem, they just haven't been able to get together yet to hash out a deal. Segal also represents Graham.

Te'o-Nesheim, the team's third-round pick, was the University of Washington's all-time sacks leader with 30 and started every game in his 4-year career.

The Eagles think he might have the size and strength to fill the role formerly held by Darren Howard, as a defensive end who can move inside and rush the passer on longer-yardage downs.

Rookies and select veterans report to Lehigh on July 26, with the remainder of the team scheduled to report July 29.
