CSN Philly’s Geoff Mosher is reporting that the Eagles are set to ink impending free-agent Riley Cooper to a four-year extension tomorrow.
League source tells me Riley Cooper will sign a 4-year deal tomorrow with Eagles. @Jeff_McLane and PFT reported today that deal was close.

Earlier today, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reported that the Eagles were closing in on an extension with the 26 year-old.
Financial terms of the deal are yet to be disclosed, but my guess is that if Cooper signed this early, he probably decided to take at least somewhat of a hometown discount. (I have no sources telling me that, it’s pure speculation)
Cooper put behind a messy training camp incident, in which he was filmed used the n-word in a malicious way, by having a breakout season that saw him catch nearly 50 passes for 837 yards and eight touchdowns in 2013.
