Eagles sign Leonard Weaver to one year deal

New, comments

I've been waiting all offseason to hear this... John Clayton is reporting that the Eagles have agree to a one year deal with free FB Leonard Weaver

Former Seattle Seahawks fullback Leonard Weaver weaved his way through a handful of contract offers and accepted a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles Friday.

The contract, according to a source, is a one-year deal that will pay him $1.75 million but also has incentives that could take the deal to $2.5 million. Although there was more money on the table from a couple of other teams, Weaver felt more comfortable with the offensive opportunities in Philadelphia.

[Note by JasonB, 03/20/09 2:57 PM EDT ] It is confirmed now on the Eagles site.

The Eagles took care of two off-season needs with one move on Friday.

Unrestricted free agent fullback Leonard Weaver has agreed to terms with the Eagles on a one-year deal. The 6-foot, 242-pound Weaver spent his first four seasons in the NFL with the Seattle Seahawks. Originally signed as a rookie free agent out of Carson-Newman in 2005, the 26-year-old is well-versed in the West Coast Offense. Weaver is more than just a lead blocker; he's also an effective weapon out of the backfield.
