Eagles re-sign CB Hobbs, LB Gocong to one-year deals

PHILADELPHIA -- The Eagles announced Tuesday that they have re-signed cornerback Ellis Hobbs and linebacker Chris Gocong to one-year contracts.

Both players were restricted free agents, and each signed his tender offer. Financial terms weren't disclosed.

Hobbs was acquired from the New England Patriots last year. He played in eight games before a neck injury ended his first season in Philadelphia. Hobbs averaged 24.1 yards on 20 kickoff returns.

Gocong, a third-round draft pick by the Eagles in 2006, has recorded 169 tackles, four sacks and one forced fumble in 47 regular-season games, including 35 starts.
