BY foxsports • March 14, 2012

Trent Cole and the Philadelphia Eagles have agreed on a four-year contract extension through 2017.

Cole is a two-time Pro Bowl selection who ranks third on the team's all-time list for sacks with 68. The deal was announced Wednesday.

Cole had 11 sacks in 2011, his fourth season with a double-digit total.

''We are excited to be able to sign Trent to a new contract,'' coach Andy Reid said. ''Trent plays the game with a level of tenacity that's hard to replicate. He's one of the premier defensive ends in the league.''
