Restricted free agent fullback Leonard Weaver has agreed to a three-year contract worth $11 million ($6.5 guaranteed), according to Jeff McLane of the Inquirer. This would apparently make Weaver the highest-paid fullback in league history, according to a league source. (I believe Jason La Canfora of the NFL Network had this one first).

The Eagles had placed a second-round tender on Weaver, but his agent said Thursday evening the two sides were close to an agreement. Weaver was an All-Pro in '09 and he gives the Eagles versatility at running back because of his ability to carry the ball eight or nine times a game.

Here is John Clayton's report on the Weaver contract.
