Eagles Agree to 4-year Deals With Draft Picks Seumalo, Vaitai

Just one left to go. 

The Eagles on Friday, reached standard four-year contract agreements with two more draft picks: third-round OL Isaac Seumalo and fifth-round OL Halapoulivaati Vaitai. 

With Seumalo and Vaiai under contract, it leaves just first-round quarterback Carson Wentz left to sign. Sometimes, under the new CBA, the holdup with first-round picks is whether or not "offset language" is included in the contract. Offset language allows the team to save money if they cut the player and then the player signs with another team. Teams generally want offset language, while players don't.

The Eagles also signed 16 undrafted free agents on Thursday (see story)

As for the two players who agreed to terms on Friday, Seumalo started 37 games at Oregon State and has played just about every position on the line, aside from left guard. In a strange twist of fate, that's the one position that's not settled on the Eagles' offensive line where he'll have a chance to compete. But because Oregon State runs on a quarters system, Seumalo will miss a significant portion of the team OTAs.

Vaitai - he likes to be called V or Big V - played in 42 games and started 31 at TCU. He played both tackle positions in college and should provide some depth there for the Eagles.
