The Philadelphia Eagles have re-signed defensive end Brandon Graham. He has received a three-year extension on Friday. 

He will be a member of the Eagles defense through at least the 2021 season. Graham is also the longest-tenured Eagles defensive player.

The 30-year-old Detroit, Michigan native was expected to be a free agent before reaching this extension. He was the Eagles first round pick (No. 13 overall) in the 2010 NFL Draft. 

This will be his 10th season with the Eagles in 2019. He started all 16 games during the 2018 season. 

He had 39 tackles, including nine tackles for a loss, and 11 quarterback hits. He also had 4.0 sacks, one forced fumble, one fumble recovery, and two pass deflections. 

He has missed just one game over the past three seasons. That came during the 2017 season when he played in just 15 games. 

In his career, he has made 127 appearances with 70 starts. He has 320 tackles, including 76 tackles for a loss and 90 quarterback hits. 

He also has 42.5 sacks, 16 forced fumbles, four fumble recoveries, including one returned for a touchdown; and seven pass deflections. 

During the 2017 season, Graham helped the Eagles to their first-ever Super Bowl victory against the New England Patriots. In Super Bowl LII against the Patriots, Graham came up the game-sealing defensive play to seal the Eagles win.
