Eagles sign second-round pick CB Cooper DeJean

Cooper DeJean

The Philadelphia Eagles signed cornerback Cooper DeJean to his four-year rookie contract on Monday.

The deal for the second-round pick is worth $9.28 million over four seasons, according to multiple reports.

DeJean was the 40th overall selection of the 2024 draft.

DeJean had seven interceptions in 30 college games over three seasons at Iowa and returned three of the picks for touchdowns.

He was limited to 10 games last season after sustaining a broken fibula in practice in mid-November. DeJean had 41 tackles and two interceptions and also returned a punt for a touchdown while averaging 11.5 yards per return.

“The guy has every tool in his body,” Eagles general manager Howie Roseman said. “He is an elite athlete, elite competitor. You know, he’s done really everything on the football field. We haven’t even talked about his ability to return and make key plays.

“You know, you get a chance, and you talk to people at Iowa, and they talk about how legendary of a player, of a career that this guy has had, his ability to make big plays in big moments of a game.”

Philadelphia has signed eight of its nine draft picks. First-round cornerback Quinyon Mitchell of Toledo, who was selected 22th overall, is the club’s lone unsigned pick.
