The Philadelphia Eagles are re-signing veteran guard/center Stefen Wisniewski, according to an announcement from himself.
Hey Philly...I’M BACK!— Stefen Wisniewski (@stefenwiz61) May 13, 2019
And I chose to sign in a tuxedo T-shirt because I wanted to be formal, but also I’m here to party...on Broad Street...in early February...for another SB parade...

NFL insider Mike Garafolo reports the one-year contract is worth $1.5 million with an extra $500,000 available in playing time incentives.
Wisniewski was originally set to make $3.7 million this season prior to the Eagles’ decision to not pick up his 2019 option. The team potentially saved $2.2 million by letting Wis go and then bringing him back at a later date. Smart.
As I wrote about just yesterday, bringing Wis back makes a lot of sense given Philadelphia’s need for interior offensive line depth. Wis can now start at right guard if Brandon Brooks, who is still recovering from an Achilles, isn’t ready to play by Week 1. Or he can fill in at guard or center should something happen to Isaac Seumalo or Jason Kelce.
Wis has made 24 starts with the Eagles since signing with Philly back in 2016. In an ideal world, the Eagles’ offensive line starters will stay healthy and he won’t have make another one this year. But it’s good to have him just in case.
