The Philadelphia Eagles have reached agreement on a three-year contract extension with right tackle Todd Herremans, keeping him in Philly through the 2016 season.
The contract is worth more than $21 million, with more than $11 million in guaranteed money. Herremans saw a pay increase after switching positions last year.
Herremans, 29, started 16 games at both right and left tackle last season after spending the previous five seasons as the starting left guard.
Head coach Andy Reid called Herremans one of the few in the NFL who can maintain success as both the tackle and the guard position.
In 2011, he ranked 26th out of 76 qualifying tackles, according to Pro Football Focus. He ranked 27th among 82 guards in 2010, 16th in 2009, and 8th in 2008.
He has been extremely durable and consistent for the Eagles, missing just five games due to injuries in the last six seasons.
His signing should end any speculation that the Eagles will go after free agent right tackle Andrew Whitworth, who was just released by the Cincinnati Bengals yesterday.
