Eagles lock up Todd Herremans through 2016

Per Adam Caplan, the Eagles gave Todd Herremans a 3-year contract extension worth $21 million:

Herremans, who is beginning his eighth season with the team, agreed to a three-year extension worth just over $21 million with slightly over $11 million guaranteed, a source told thesidelineview.com. Herremans was previously set to make just $4.8 million in base salary over the final two years of the contract extension that he signed in March of 2007.

The team, because he had two years left on his deal, really was under no obligation to adjust his contract. Teams generally like to wait until the player enters the final year of his deal to negotiate an extension, but the Eagles chose to do the right thing and rewarded Herremans for his consistently solid play over the course of his career.

Herremans is a home-grown player that the Eagles drafted in the 4th round in 2005.  He’ll be 34 when his new contract expires at the end of the 2016 season.  Last offseason, the Eagles signed Ryan Harris, hoping he’d earn the job at RT.  Instead, Harris’ bad back required surgery, and he was lost for the season.  The Eagles made the decision to kick Herremans out to RT, and slide Evan Mathis into Herrmans’ vacated position at LG.  Both moves worked out extremely well, as both Herremans and Mathis played well.  Herremans will now be making “tackle money,” not “guard money.”

Herremans is one of the more versatile offensive linemen in the NFL, as he also filled in at LT for an injured Jason Peters last year.  Here he is destroying Oshiomogho Atogwe last season:

    I’ve got no problems watching Redskins getting trucked. The video of Landry getting destroyed by Jacobs is always hysterical because of the comical number of times Landry has strutted around after a routine tackle on a practically defenseless receiver showing his guns and acting like he is some kind of hard hitter.

    That said, I am not sure Herremans makes a great block. It’s guard (big bloke) knocking over an off-balance safety (little bloke). You kind of have to expect the guard to win that one. Then after that “great” block he manages to get in the way of his running back an then get knocked on his face by London Fletcher.

    Herremans is a good player and I am betting he doesn’t think that’s a highlight.

    1. Ha, come on now. He gives the first linebacker a little shuffleboard push up the field (goodbye, out of the play), then gets upfield, and smaller guy or not, that’s a decleater, and Herremans does it with little more than his arms.

    Allright a threesome!!

    LOL @ that picture. I wonder if those were the 2 girls in the van that the Toddfather was smoking weed with.
