The <A href="http://www.kffl.com/team/29/nfl">Philadelphia Eagles announced QB A.J. Feeley has signed a three-year contract extension that will keep him with the team through the 2010 season. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Garcia likely out of Philly after Feeley returns


A.J. Feeley has gone 4-1 in his career with the Eagles, completing 59 percent of his passes for 1,496 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Quarterback A.J. Feeley and the Eagles agreed on a three-year contract extension Sunday, nearly eliminating the chance that Jeff Garcia will return to Philadelphia.

Feeley’s new deal runs through 2010. Garcia, who helped the Eagles win the NFC East title and a playoff game after Donovan McNabb was injured, will become a free agent on Friday.

“A.J. Feeley has been very productive as a quarterback in Philadelphia,†general manager Tom Heckert said. “He’s won some games at crucial times for this franchise and he gives us a great amount of confidence as a backup to Donovan McNabb. A.J.’s proven to be very comfortable in this offensive scheme and we look forward to having him in the fold for the next several years.â€Â

Garcia, a three-time Pro-Bowl quarterback in San Francisco earlier this decade, revived his career in Philadelphia. He led the Eagles to five straight wins down the stretch, completing 61.7 percent of his passes for 1,309 yards, 10 touchdowns and two interceptions.

The Eagles were 5-5 and seemingly out of the playoff picture when McNabb tore a knee ligament on Nov. 19. But with Garcia leading the way, they captured their fifth division title in six years.

Garcia, who turned 37 Saturday, played under a one-year contract after miserable one-year stints in Cleveland and Detroit. His hard-nosed, gritty style quickly made him a fan favorite in Philadelphia. He has said he wants to return in a backup role, but it’s highly doubtful the Eagles will bring him back now that Feeley is under contract for four more years.

Donovan better hope to stay healthy for Eagles' fans because Feeley sure as hell won't be their savior if McNabb goes down again.
