Eagles To Sign DT Haloti Ngata

Eagles To Sign DT Haloti Ngata

The Eagles have agreed to bring in defensive tackle Haloti Ngata on a one-year deal, per ESPN's Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen.

Ngata was selected to five straight Pro Bowls from 2009-2013 and was a back-to-back All-Pro performer in 2010 and 2011.

Ngata only played in five games a year ago with the Detroit Lions, but he won't be asked to shoulder the load in Philly.

Ngata won't have to play a heavy snap count in Philadelphia, so if he can play at (or near) that level of production, he'll be a valuable defensive line piece.

Ngata has compiled 31.5 sacks during his 13-year career with the Lions and Baltimore Ravens.

In other moves, the Eagles are reportedly restructuring the contract of offensive tackle Lane Johnson in an attempt to free up salary cap space, and are expected to lose backup tight end Trey Burton, who reportedly is headed to Chicago via free agency.

The Eagles are adding defensive end Michael Bennett via trade with the Seattle Seahawks and already feature a deep and talented line, including interior pass rusher Fletcher Cox.

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.
