Weaver's Press Conference; Reid and Roseman's Thoughts On Weaver

Weaver on resigning with the Eagles:

"I think we both got to the point where we came to equal terms. It was one of those things where I was adamant about being here and I was willing to do kind of whatever, in a sense, to be here. And things worked out perfectly. What happens now is people are going to expect more of you. I'm expecting more of myself this year and I'm preparing that same way."

On his role on the Eagles:

"I really enjoyed (my role) . I got the best of both worlds. I was able to play fullback and then run block as well. We had some key games that we won where Shady scored some touchdowns and I happened to be involved. Then, to be able to carry the ball as well and have Andy (Reid) trust me in that position, it was great. I definitely look forward to that opportunity again."

On the the fans and the City:

"Philly is the place that I want to be. That's the bottom line. Teams submitted their deals, but I wanted to wait on Philly. This is a place that I love. What better place could you play than Philadelphia, where the fans are all for you. They're going to tell you like it is."

On McNabb and the Eagles organization:

"This team is in the playoffs every single year. If they're not competing for an NFC Championship or a Super Bowl, they're in the first and second round every year, and that's something that is very important and dear to me because that means we're winning games. That means a lot. I truly believe that Donovan will be back. and if he isn't, life continues to go on. Whatever they decide to do with Donovan, I'm going to be okay with it. It was definitely something I thought about."

Andy Reid on Weaver signing

"Leonard proved to be a versatile player for us last year from the fullback position. He made plays both running and catching the football and was a reliable blocker. Plus, he is committed to donating time and energy in the community. Leonard is an All-Pro on and off the field. We are happy to have him back for the next three seasons."

General manager Howie Roseman on Weaver:

"Signing Leonard Weaver back was a big priority for us heading into the offseason and we are glad to get that accomplished today. Leonard played very well for us last year as a runner, receiver and blocker. He was a Pro Bowl performer on and off the field."
