The Philadelphia Eagles have announced that they have agreed to a four-year deal with third-round pick Daniel Te’o-Neshiem (pronounced: tuh-OH NESS-ime according to the Eagles official website). As of now, Te’o-Neshiem is slotted for inside blitzing duties. And a side note: writing this guy’s name gives me fits.
This leaves Brandon Graham, Nate Allen and Riley Cooper as the only unsigned rookies. I’m not exactly sure what Cooper is waiting for. Someone might need to tell him the Raheem Brock story. Then again, Brock eventually got a Super Bowl ring so maybe not.
The Eagles are now one of only seven teams with a third-round pick under contract. If that doesn’t win you a Super Bowl, I don’t know what will. As of right now, there aren’t any first- or second-round picks that are signed anywhere in the NFL.
