Eagles want McCoy around 'a long time'

With DeSean Jackson signed to a five-year contract, running back LeSean McCoy, in the last year of his contract, is the Eagles' top priority.

Roseman didn't seem to be in a hurry to add a linebacker in free agency. And he said the Eagles were in constant contact with the representatives for guard Evan Mathis, who visited the Ravens. The level of commitment isn't the same as for a superstar, which made Roseman grin.
"Whatever it takes?" Roseman said rhetorically when asked about retaining Mathis. "That's a powerful statement. We'd like Evan back."
And no, I wouldn't ask Roseman such a thing. HR gave me a non-answer at my inquiry about what, if any safeguards were in the 5-year, $51 million contract Jackson signed.
"We have no questions about DeSean as a person or a player," Roseman said. "And I think his contract reflects that."
