Cole has had at least nine sacks in each of the past five years, and had 11 sacks along with 45 tackles in 14 games this past season. Cole has 68 sacks and has forced 12 fumbles in his seven years with the Eagles.

"Trent plays the game with a level of tenacity that's hard to replicate," Eagles coach Andy Reid said in a statement released by the team. "He's one of the premier DEs in the league."

"We have always said that when you watch the tape, it's hard to tell the difference between his first play and his last play," Reid continued. "And as good as he is rushing the passer, he is equally as good against the run. His energy is contagious on the field."

Cole is set to address the media Wednesday at noon ET.
