Eagles agree to one-year deals with NT Ngata, LB Nelson

Detroit Lions defensive tackle Haloti Ngata will sign with the Philadelphia Eagles when the new league year opens Wednesday according to ESPN Eagles agree to one-year deals with NT Ngata, LB Nelson

The Philadelphia Eagles signed linebacker Corey Nelson to a one-year contract and plan to sign defensive tackle Haloti Ngata to a one-year deal, multiple media outlets reported Tuesday.

Ngata, 34, is coming off an injury-shortened 2017 season with the Detroit Lions after tearing his biceps in Week 5, which landed him on injured reserve. Joe Douglas, the Eagles' vice president of player personnel, is familiar with Ngata from their time together with the Baltimore Ravens. He appeared in all 16 games over his first three seasons with Denver, making six starts and setting a career high with 61 tackles and five passes defensed in 2016.

Ngata would likely become a rotational defensive lineman for defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz, who could use Ngata and Bennett as power ends or at tackle in the pass rushing package.

The year prior, Ngata played just 51.31 percent of the Lions' total defensive snaps-down from a mark of 57 percent in 2015, per Pro Football Reference.

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 previous year. "I want to be able to raise my kids and be able to play with them when they are older and still be able to beat them in wrestling matches and stuff when they are teenagers", Ngata said in 2017. He is a five-time Pro Bowler, two-time All-Pro selection and a Super Bowl champion with the Ravens.
