Eagles sign QB Kafka, TE Harbor

The Philadelphia Eagles today announced they have signed QB Mike Kafka and TE Clay Harbor, each to four-year contracts.

Both Kafka and Harbor were selected by the Eagles in the fourth round of the 2010 NFL draft.

A second-team All-Big Ten selection as a senior, Kafka (6-3, 225) finished his career with 4,265 passing yards (eighth in school history), 887 rushing yards (third-highest by a QB in school history) and 30 touchdowns (19 passing, 11 rushing). Kafka, who was named team co-captain in 2009, earned team offensive MVP accolades after leading the Big Ten Conference in passing yards (3,430), total offense (3,729), completions (319), completion percentage (64.8) and interception percentage (2.44). He also added 16 touchdown passes, 295 rushing yards and eight rushing scores. A Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award watch list nominee that season, Kafka tallied six 300-yard passing games, while throwing for a school-record 532 yards against Auburn in the 2010 Outback Bowl.

The 6-2, 252-pound Harbor played in 44 games (34 starts) at Missouri State and caught a school-record 150 passes for 1,906 yards and 10 touchdowns. Harbor’s yardage total ranks fourth in school history. An Associated Press first-team All-American, he set career-highs in catches (59) and yards (729) in 2009. Those totals ranked second and seventh on the school’s single-season record list, respectively. Harbor tied the school’s all-time record in consecutive games with a reception (33) and career 100-yard receiving performances (six). The three-time first-team All-Missouri Valley Football Conference selection led the team in receptions for three consecutive years and was tabbed as an Associated Press All-American twice.

 The Eagles have now signed nine of their 13 draft picks in 2010.
