The Philadelphia Eagles and coach Andy Reid have begun talks on a contract extension, according to a Sal Paolantonio report Saturday. Eagles president Joe Banner told a radio station earlier in the week that the club hoped to agree to a contract extension with Reid at some point.

"Now would be the time to do it, because Andy does not want to be a lame duck in 2010," a source close to the negotiations told Paolantonio. Reid's agent, Bob LaMonte, did not confirm that the negotiations were taking place but did say, "Andy and [Eagles owner] Jeff [Lurie] and Joe have a very close relationship and they want that to continue."
