The Philadelphia Eagles signed Coach Andy Reid to a four-year contract extension that runs through the 2010 season, the team announced yesterday.
Eagles officials said they negotiated the deal with agent Bob LaMonte this week after opening discussions on the matter last winter. Reid has led the club to the last three NFC title games. The deal apparently is worth about $5 million per season and is added to the three remaining seasons Reid had on a six-year, $15 million contract.
"This man has led this franchise in a spectacular way over the last several years, and will be doing so for the next several years,'' Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie said at a news conference.
* DOLPHINS: Miami traded a third-round draft choice next year to St. Louis for tailback Lamar Gordon, a third-stringer for the Rams who soon could move ahead of Travis Minor and Sammy Morris to be the Dolphins' starter. Gordon, who rushed for 526 yards in 23 games over two seasons with the Rams, was made expendable by the arrival of first-round draft pick Steven Jackson to back up and eventually replace Marshall Faulk.
The Dolphins' game against the Titans, scheduled for 1 p.m. Sunday in Miami, could be moved to Saturday or Monday. NFL officials are monitoring the progress of Hurricane Ivan, which could hit the Miami area this weekend. The game also could be rescheduled for a Thursday in November, when the teams have byes on consecutive weekends.
* RAMS: Safety Jason Sehorn failed his physical with the Rams and won't be joining the team even though he had agreed to a one-year, $760,000 contract. He broke his foot last year in training camp.
* TITANS: Tennessee put kicker Joe Nedney on the injured reserve list, ending his season. Nedney hurt his left hamstring during practice Tuesday. He was sidelined for all but one game of last season because of a knee injury. Punter Craig Hentrich is available as a temporary fill-in.
* BILLS: Defensive end Aaron Schobel signed a five-year contract extension, allowing Buffalo to secure its best pass rusher. The contract, worth about $23 million, including a $6.75 million signing bonus, locks him up through the 2009 season.
A second-round pick in the 2001 draft, Schobel was entering the fourth and final year of his rookie contract, which paid him an average of $711,000 a season. . . .
Travis Henry will be the starting running back on opening day, leaving Willis McGahee to settle for playing backup. McGahee said he can live with the role, but he doesn't have to like it.
"That's their decision, it ain't mine," McGahee said.
* JETS: New York placed cornerback Ray Mickens on the injured reserve list because of a torn knee ligament and signed veteran cornerback Terrell Buckley.
