In recent weeks, the Philadelphia Eagles have signed offensive tackle Winston Justice and tight end Brent Celek to long-term contract extensions. Now they're about to hand out the most significant extension of all.
Coach Andy Reid is on the verge of finalizing a long-term contract extension with the Eagles, the team he has coached since 1999, league sources said.
The extension could be announced as early as this week.
Reid's current contract is scheduled to run through the 2010 season, but the new deal will tie Reid to the Eagles for years to come.
Reid says he can "think of no better organization" than the Eagles. He has a career record of 105-66-1 after Sunday's 34-7 win over the Atlanta Falcons.
Both Reid and the Eagles declined to comment when asked about the extension.
