Plenty of big names made headlines by finding new homes on Tuesday and Wednesday promises more of the same, but there are also plenty of smaller deals getting done around the league.
The Eagles made one of those by signing former Seahawks safety and special teamer Chris Maragos. Adam Caplan of ESPN reports that it is a three-year, $4 million deal with $1 million guaranteed. Caplan reports that the Redskins were also among the teams interested in adding Maragos, but Philly got the deal done.
Maragos played sparingly on defense in Seattle and doesn’t figure to play a much bigger role on Philly’s unit, but he should be a valuable member of the special teams units.
While Maragos isn’t a good bet to see extended time in the secondary, his arrival could lead to more changes at safety. The Eagles signed Malcolm Jenkins and released Patrick Chung on Tuesday, and Maragos could wind up taking the roster spot of either Colt Anderson or Kurt Coleman as the Eagles continue building their 2014 roster.
UPDATE 7:55 a.m. ET: The Eagles have officially announced the deal.
