Eagles To Sign DT Haloti Ngata

They already traded for Seattle Seahawks defensive end Michael Bennett, and now they've signed another d-lineman to their rotation. But line depth was huge for the Eagles last season; seven of their defensive linemen played at least 400 snaps, most in the National Football League, per ESPN Stats & Information.

The Philadelphia Eagles and free-agent defensive tackle Haloti Ngata reportedly agreed to terms on a one-year contract Tuesday.

He's been selected to five Pro Bowls and was a first-team All-Pro twice. He'll be a rotational part of the Eagles' defensive line this coming season. Ngata played 32 games for Detroit, making 53 tackles with six sacks.

Yes, Ngata is 34-years old and his best years are behind him. Before the 2017 season, Ngata went to the The Sports Neurology Clinic at the CORE Institute in Brighton, Michigan, for an examination before deciding to play.

Not only that, they are adding to their stable to players.

After spending most of his career as one of the league's best interior defensive linemen in a 3-4 defense with the Baltimore Ravens, he transitioned to a 4-3 with the Lions past year.

And if that's how the Eagles choose to deploy him, they could do worse-especially considering the limited short-term investment for the reigning Super Bowl champions. In those five games, Ngata recorded seven tackles and two sacks. He also has 27 career pass breakups.
