HOW ACQUIRED: Signed as a rookie free agent in 2006. He is not related to Eagles defensive lineman Trent Cole.
THIS YEAR: A backup center, Cole played all 14 games and started the last two at right guard in place of Max Jean-Gilles.
FAVORITE ATHLETE: Former Chiefs offensive lineman Will Shields, a 12-time Pro Bowler and likely Hall of Famer from Lawton, who retired after the 2006 season.
WELCOME TO THE NFL MOMENT: "When I got my first check," he said, laughing. Cole's contract is up after this year.
FIRST SIGNIFICANT PURCHASE: "I had to buy myself a car. My '88 box Chevy wasn't cutting it."
COLE SCENE INVESTIGATION: Is a big fan of television crime shows, particularly "CSI: Miami." "I like watching those shows because of the suspense. They keep you watching until the end. I like shows that make you think a little bit."
FAVORITE ATHLETIC MOMENT: Picked up a fumble as a sophomore in college and returned it 15 yards before being tackled by the shoestrings. (Hey, he's an offensive lineman.)
