Here’s a slightly surprising move: the Philadelphia Eagles have officially signed Chance Warmack to a one-year extension, according to an official announcement from the team.

Why is this news surprising? Well, Warmack hasn’t exactly looked great this summer. He also doesn’t offer much position versatility since he only plays guard. Dallas Thomas arguably outperformed him this preseason. Some believed Warmack would be cut.

Then again, Warmack has a big supporter in his corner in the former of Eagles offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland. As you know by now, Stoutland coached Warmack when the two together were at Alabama. That’s why Warmack signed a one-year deal with Philadelphia on the first day of NFL free agency this year.

Warmack turns 26 years old later this month. The Eagles must like the former No. 10 overall pick’s potential.

Now that we know he’ll be on the roster, Warmack will likely be the Eagles’ top backup behind starting guard Isaac Seumalo and Brandon Brooks.
