INDIANAPOLIS - Eagles coach Andy Reid today suggested the team will re-sign safety Brian Dawkins and offensive tackle Tra Thomas, two veterans who are eligible to become free agents when the signing period begins next Friday.

"I think that'll all take place within the next few days or week or whatever," said Reid, who is attending the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis. "There's communication."

Dawkins, who will turn 36 in October, was selected to play in the Pro Bowl for the seventh time after rebounding from an injury-plagued 2007 season. He has been with the Eagles 13 seasons and may be the team's most popular players.

Thomas, who will turn 35 next season, has been a mainstay at left tackle since the Eagles drafted him on the first round in 1998.

Dawkins and Thomas are among five veteran Eagles eligible for unrestricted free agency. The others are offensive tackle Jon Runyan, running back Correll Buckhalter and tight end L.J. Smith. Runyan is recovering from microfracture surgery on his right knee and is one month into a recovery period expected to take 4-6 months.
