The Philadelphia Eagles have struck big time prior to the start of free agency in less than two weeks.

Philadelphia announced Friday morning that it has re-signed impending free agent defensive end Brandon Graham to a three year contract.

The deal is said to be worth between $12 and $14 million per season.

This is no small thing. Graham, 30, has been the Eagles’ most-consistent player since they selected him in the first round of the 2010 NFL Draft. He has put up 90 quarterback hits and 42.5 sacks across nine years in Philadelphia.

Graham did regress some last season — tallying just 11 quarterback hits and four sacks. But he was still a consistent figure in the opposing team’s backfield.
