Eagles Insider Dave Spadaro reports the team has re-signed defensive end Cedric Thornton to a one-year deal. Thornton was slated to become an exclusive rights free agent.
The 25-year-old really came into his own last year in the Eagles new 3-4 defense. He registered 60 total tackles with two passes defended, one sack, and one forced fumble against the Detroit Lions. Thornton provides the Eagles with more young depth at defensive end.
