Derrick Gunn is reporting that the Philadelphia Eagles and Donovan McNabb are very close to agreeing on terms to re-work the final two years of his contract.

Financial terms were not disclosed, but anywhere between $15-$20 million would not surprise me.

McNabb is only making around nine million dollars a year as of now, but with the new deal could and should be making around $12-$14 million.

He's a top quarterback and certainly deserves to be paid like one.

Gunn is also reporting that the Eagles are talking with LeSean McCoy and should be done with his deal in the next two to three weeks.

McCoy and the Eagles' first round pick Jeremy Maclin remain the only two rookies of the eight-rookie 2009 class yet to be signed.

Some of the first round picks are being signed now, but I'm assuming the Eagles will probably wait to see what the 18th (Robert Ayers) and the 20th (Brandon Pettigrew) picks will receive from their respective teams before signing Maclin.
