Birds, Weaver inching towards multi-year deal

On Thursday, the Philadelphia Eagles put a second-round tender on fullback Leonard Weaver.

Today, the two parties are looking to lock-down a multi-year contract.

The Eagles and the All Pro fullback are closing in on a three-year deal to keep Weaver in the City of Brotherly Love, according to Geoff Mosher of the News Journal. While the deal is not yet official, agent Harold Lewis told Mosher that both sides are “very close.”

Weaver signed a one-year deal with the Birds last offseason and turned some heads in 2009 when he averaged 4.6 yards per carry and scored four total touchdowns in eight starts for Philadelphia. He was named to the All-Pro team at the conclusion of the season.
