The Eagles have signed quarterback Kevin Kolb to a one-year contract extension that could keep him in Philadephia through the 2011 season. Eagles general  manager Howie Roseman made the announcement in a statement Thursday.Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Kolb spent his first three seasons with the Eagles behind Donovan McNabb, but stepped in when McNabb was injured in the season opener last year at Carolina. The 2007 second-round draft choice promptly became the first NFL quarterback to throw for 300 yards in his first two starts.

When McNabb was injured in the season opener, last year at Carolina, Kolb showed he was ready. He threw for 391 yards against New Orleans and 327 yards a week later vs.  Kansas City.
