Field Yates of ESPN reports that the Eagles have signed backup OL Dennis Kelly to a one-year contract extension on Wednesday. According to Yates, Kelly’s extension will pay him a $760,000 base salary to go along with a $30,000 workout bonus.

Eagles head coach Chip Kelly spoke very highly of Kelly earlier this month. 

“I’m a big Dennis fan,” Chip said. “I think the one thing you know is this is what you’re going to get from him every day. There are not a lot of missed assignments; there are not a lot of mental mistakes out of Dennis.  He’s always dialed into what he’s done.”

Kelly, 25, is a former fifth-round pick of the Eagles back in 2012. He was entering the final year of his four-year, $2,288,800 rookie contract and will make a base salary of $660,000 for the 2015 season.
