Eagles Sign Second-Round CB Cooper DeJean

The Philadelphia Eagles announced that they have signed second-round CB Cooper DeJean to his rookie contract on Monday.

He was widely considered a first-round draft selection but it wasn’t clear whether he’ll be asked to be a cornerback or safety at the next level. The Eagles selected him with the No. 40 pick in the 2024 draft.

DeJean, 21, was a two-time first-team All-Big-10 selection in his sophomore and junior seasons. He was a unanimous All-American his junior year at Iowa. He also set the single-season record at Iowa for interceptions returned for a touchdown at three.

The No. 40 overall pick is projected to sign a four-year, $9,283,618 contract that includes a $3,571,720 signing bonus and will carry a $1,687,930 cap figure for the 2024 season.

Throughout his three-year career at Iowa, DeJean appeared in 30 games for the Hawkeyes and recorded 120 total tackles, including five tackles for loss to go along with 20 passes defended, seven interceptions, and three touchdowns. He also added another touchdown on special teams as a kick returner.
