Eagles sign 2nd-round draft pick Kendricks
The Philadelphia Eagles and second-round draft pick Mychal
Kendricks have agreed to a four-year contract.
The Eagles announced the deal with the Cal linebacker on
Tuesday. Terms were not disclosed.
Kendricks started every game for the Golden Bears over the last
three years. He had 105 tackles and 2.5 sacks last season when he
was the Pac-12 defensive player of the year.
The 5-foot-11, 240-pound Kendricks can bolster a linebacker
corps that was the weakest link on the defense last season.
Kendricks has the versatility to play inside or outside, and is
considered a solid tackler with the speed to play in coverage.
Kendricks is the fourth linebacker the Eagles have selected in
the second round in coach Andy Reid’s 14 seasons as coach. Barry
Gardner (1999), Quinton Caver (2001) and Matt McCoy (2005) were the
