The Eagles announced they have agreed to terms with running back LeSean McCoy on a four year contract. McCoy was the club's 2nd round draft choice in 2009. The Eagles have now come to terms with seven of the eight members of their 2009 draft class.

McCoy amassed 3,365 total yards from scrimmage and 36 total touchdowns during a productive two-year career at Pittsburgh. McCoy registered 2,816 rushing yards and 35 touchdowns on 584 carries (4.8 yards per carry), while catching 65 passes for 549 yards and one score.

A second-team All-America selection in 2008, McCoy become just the third player in school history to post multiple 1,000-yard rushing campaigns, joining Tony Dorsett and Curvin Richards. McCoy also broke an NCAA record for most touchdowns by a player in their freshman and sophomore seasons, topping the old mark of 34 scores by WR Larry Fitzgerald (2002-03), also a product of Pittsburgh.

McCoy enjoyed a storied career at Bishop McDevitt High School in Harrisburg, PA, where he became one of the most prolific rushers in Pennsylvania high school history. He twice earned first-team, all-state honors from the Associated Press and was selected state player of the year as a junior.
