Report: Eagles will sign WR Riley Cooper to 4-year contract on Thursday; WR Jeremy Maclin to follow?

Geoff Mosher of CSN Philadelphia reports via a league source that wide receiver Riley Cooper @RileyCooper_14 will sign a four-year deal on Thursday to remain with the Eagles. Cooper, 26, is coming off the best season of his career. He caught 47 passes for 835 yards and eight touchdowns, all career highs as he filled the No. 2 WR role in place of the injured Jeremy Maclin @jmac_18.
Speaking of Maclin, Jeff McLane of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that the team is expected to re-sign Maclin soon, "most likely to a one-year 'show me' contract after he tore his anterior cruciate ligament last July."

Fantasy Analysis:

But the Eagles will lock up Cooper first. I think it would have been a mistake if Philly had re-signed Cooper at the expense of losing Maclin, but it makes sense if they can afford to keep both. Maclin is still more talented and should reclaim his No. 2 spot if his right knee makes it back to 100 percent before next season. Cooper as the No. 3 wideout would have more value to Nick Foles @NFoles8 and the Eagles than he would to fantasy owners.
