Mahe, Mikell Re-Sign With Eagles

Reno Mahe and Quintin Mikell tested the free agent market and found that returning to the Eagles would be their best option. Both players signed one year deals to come back to Philadelphia.

A veteran of three NFL seasons, Reno Mahe led the NFL in punt return average with 12.8 yards/return in 2005. In his three NFL seasons, Mahe has been part of the Eagles special teams units and has excelled on both the return and coverage units, posting 20 special teams tackles in his career. Mahe, 25, originally signed with the Eagles as a rookie free agent in 2003 and in addition to working on special teams, has seen some time in the Eagles backfield. As a reserve running back, Mahe has 43 career carries for 178 yards, as well as 27 receptions for 196 yards.

Quintin Mikell has also worked on the special teams unit and led the team in special teams tackles (28) and special teams production points (228) last season. Mikell, who also works as a reserve safety, has played three seasons in the NFL, appearing in 46 games with 73 special teams tackles, the most by an Eagle in that span. Mikell originally signed with the Eagles as a rookie free agent in 2003 out of Boise State, where he finished his career ranked second all-time with 401 tackles.
