PHILADELPHIA (AP) _ Former Oklahoma State Cowboy defensive end Juqua Thomas signed a five-year contract to remain with the Philadelphia Eagles on Friday.

The 28-year-old Thomas saw his playing time increase last year when three-time Pro Bowler Jevon Kearse suffered a season-ending injury in Week Two.

Thomas responded with career highs of 47 tackles and six quarterback sacks.

Thomas originally signed with Tennessee as a rookie free agent out of Oklahoma State. He played four season with the Titans before signing with the Eagles during training camp in 2005.
