In case you weren’t aware, until tonight, the Eagles were yet to sign their first-round pick Lane Johnson. That is of course until tonight.
#Eagles have agreed to terms on a four-year contract with T Lane Johnson, the team’s 2013 first-round draft pick.

The Eagles released the following statement on the signing of Johnson, via the team’s website.
“We’re very excited to have all of our draft picks ready to go for the start of training camp,” said general manager Howie Roseman. “I give Lane and his agent, Ken Sarnoff, a lot of credit for their work in getting this deal complete. Both had stated to us how important it was to get this deal signed before the rookies report on Monday and they kept their word. We’re all looking forward to watch Lane get his NFL career started.”
Johnson was the number four overall pick in April’s draft. The 6’6, 305 pound Johnson, figures to be a rock at the right-tackle position for the Eagles for the next decade. Or at least for the next four seasons.
