Eagles adding Haloti Ngata on one-year deal

The Eagles continue to add veteran parts to their defensive line, building on what was already a strength.

According to Adam Schefter of ESPN, the Eagles will sign veteran nose tackle Haloti Ngata on a one-year deal tomorrow.

The 34-year-old Ngata suffered a torn biceps in Week Five last season and finished the year on the Lions’ IR.

The Eagles also traded for defensive end Michael Bennett for pass-rush help, but Ngata fills a need for a run-stopper.

Beau Allen is headed to free agency and could cash in, so the Eagles were wise to find a veteran to fill that slot.

  1. I don’t understand. He’s a 2-gap/1-technique guy (I think) who lacks any speed or pass rush – how does that fit into Schwarz’s Wide-9 where a DT is expected to be a 1-gap/3-technique (I think)?

    Or is he a run only lineman?

  2. Damn. He doesn’t have to do much other than be big on run downs and keep a blocker off Fletcher Cox

  3. Poor TyLawspicks is living in a world where his team didn’t just get beat by a superior team with their back up QB. Can you imagine what Carson would have done to that sad defense you cheaters had? But it’s fine, you can be bitter little man. However, just to educate yourself go and look up Ngata’s stats over the last three years. Then realize that a smarter GM than yours just picked up another big reliable piece to repeat while you were once again beaten to a player that Cheatchick wanted like Bennett. Best of luck next year with a 41 year old QB, no running game, a crap defense, and new coordinators.

    He’s done. He’s been done for years. Poor guy.

    –It’s obvious you haven’t seen him play. Still one of the better run stoppers in the league. Nice signing for Philly, hate to see him go.

    Poor bitter Pats fan….it’ll be ok pal….there is always next year

  6. Beau Allen has better numbers over the last few years , was injury free, and is much younger.
    Not an upgrade no matter how you slice it.

    Stats are for losers. And, Nick Foles is not a back up. He was an MVP candidate a few years back and played a great game, out playing Brady.

    When you’re a 34 year old load off a blown out ACL from a couple years back, and your team cuts you, you’re done. At best, he’s a cap invite and a guy who can take on some snaps in preseason.

    As for my team, we’ll be in the 8th straight AFC Title game, likely a lot healthier since it’s an even season, and we’ll see how it goes from there.

    The team is young and up and coming, while playing in Super Bowls.

    2 2nd rd picks, no stolen 1st rder this year by cheater Goodell, so all will be well in the draft room.

    But, Philly is busy “”restructuring” contracts already and signing vets who are clearly done. Congrats on your 1 championship. We don’t expect any more for many more decades.

  8. Ty…you don’t need to be bitter or spiteful. You guys have how many SB’s and the greatest coach/QB combo of all time?!? It’s OK to take the high road. People would have more respect for that.

  9. Guys don’t get upset with @tylawspick6 . He is simply one of thousands of patriots fans that won’t be patriots fans in another year or two

  10. Hey TyLaw you act like contacts don’t get restructured all the time. Your team is young. Now that’s funny. You have a 41 year old QB who will be gone in a year or two. Your best offensive weapon is a concussion away from retirement. And your coach who knows when he’s leaving. But you just keep putting the Eagles down like last year. Your predictions were they lose to the Falcons-WRONG. Lose to the Vikings-Wrong. Lose to the Pats-Wrong once again

    Well said brother !

  12. Youknowimright – dude, you wish. Foles was our backup…he outplayed Tom Brady. Pederson was aggressive, and outcoached the Pats. Call it luck all you like, but the Birds dominated this year – while losing their HOF LT, their best RB, their best ST player, their QB on defense (Hicks), half the year without Darby, and they won throughout the playoffs as the underdog in every matchup without their MVP QB. And on top of all of that, Jeffries played with a torn biceps all season long. But yeah, luck right?

  13. You don’t luck your way into a superbowl championship against Tom Brady and the Patriots in a season where you lose your franchise QB (who was the MVP before he got hurt) in addition to your stud middle linebacker and HOF left tackle. Nah… Luck wasn’t on the Eagles side, they overcame bad luck to win it all. Calling them lucky makes you sound like a (use your imagination).

    Luckiest SB win in the history of the NFL.

  14. Tylaw good luck with all those second round picks that the Pats have done such a great job with in the past. Plus please remember that while your QB is the GOAT (wont argue with that) he is 41…..again….41!!! So enjoy your young team, I am sure that is going to go great once father time takes your boy down. I am excited to see Bill work without Brady. Also love the “numbers are for losers”. Call me a loser but at least I have facts behind my analysis and know I am right. I am sure its fun to win that AFC East every year since those teams are a joke, but you ran in to a superior team who out coached, out played, and out classed you and the proof of it is that the trophy is in Philly….. End of discussion! Again you lost to our back up! Wait till the new face of the NFL Carson Wentz gets a hold of you. As for “YouKnowIamWrong” I hope you enjoy basking in the glow of the Eagles OWNING your sad little franchise. We’ll be here for the next decade little man.

    Season tickets since ’78. Was at the first home title game in ’97. Were you?

    Philly’s title defense will ve very tough. They’re now the targeted and 2018 will be a new season.

    Changing the rule on the CLement TD was cheating by Goodell. He used it when he needed it.

  17. Patriots have only won 1 Super Bowl without cheating. As of now. We will probably find out when Butler signs with a new team that the Pats hacked the Seahawks headsets and knew the play b4 hand.

  18. Thank you Malcolm Butler. Without you being a moron, we would still be without a SB win.

    —all Eagles fans

  19. Funny how he said Detroit was the greatest city and organization in the world when he signed for 3 years at 6.5 million a yea. Now Philadelphia will be heaped with praise when he arrives..
    He was washed up when he left the Ravens. Injuries were piling up and he was suspended four games for taking adderall.
    He was best at hawking fried chicken at Royal Farms.

  20. Loved him when he was a Raven. Definitely lost a step but a solid addition for the Philly defense. Man is anyone going to be able to run the ball on the Eagles??

    Yes, Brady really looks “41”. You can say “41” over and over and over and it doesn’t mean jack squat.

    This isn’t Gomer Manning and his Chinese HGH.

    The eagles will win Ngata this year. Hey OOOOOOHHHH!

    You are about as funny and amusing as a box of broken, antique light bulbs. Your joy comes from reading articles of other NFL teams and posting troll comments equivalent to a toddler banging the keyboard. What a sad and pathetic life you live.

  23. @khenien…I’m sorry I made fun of your favorite team …that you live for…and you got very mad…….What a sad and pathetic life you live….On the flip side lots of typing in that post…good for you.

  24. Yes, Brady really looks “41”. You can say “41” over and over and over and it doesn’t mean jack squat.

    Hey Tylawspick6,

    Try once to objectively watch Tom Brady play. The zip on his passes is not what it used to be. He’s still very accurate, and he is still got Tom Brady’s GOAT brain. He gets by on two of the three.

    Peyton was identical his last few years. But when the wall came, it came quickly. He had no business winning his last SB but lets just say the Broncos won in spite of him on defense and the fumes in Peyton’s tank. The end will come for Brady this way, he cannot beat father time, only cheat him for a while, and he’s pretty good at cheating with enough practice at that.

    Frankly, they made a big mistake getting rid of Jimmy G., but were backed in a corner. Belichick knows this and it is why he resisted until he was ordered to. What next for the Patriots? Better draft a QB this year. He will need to be ready by next year, or the following….Unless Bryan Hoyer is the answer (um, no).

  25. Damn, no wonder people hate Eagles fans. Good Lord. In what world did Foles “outplay” Brady. Yes, stats aren’t everything, but Brady was the best player on both teams!! It was just that Foles’ defense made the plays, and the Pats defense didn’t and Bill Belichick for whatever reason of his own, decided to hold out a Cornerback that was the defensive hero of SB49, and had played 97 or so percent of the snaps in the 2017-18 season. Good Lord. Appreciate your win. Stop being sore winners, and if you win another championship, please for the love of anything that is Holy, don’t eat horse manure in celebration.

    Maybe in the world he didn’t fumble the game away with everything on the line at the end?
    Maybe “outplay” isn’t the right word………….how about “beat”.

    He was the MVP, wasn’t he?

  27. 2018 Super bowl Champs!!! Now watch Howie Wowie work his magic soon to be 2018 Offseason Champs!!!!!! #Repeat!! #Dynastyenders,#GetUsedToThis!!!!!!!

  28. That might be the case. If I were an Eagles fan, I’d be concerned about Ngata staying healthy the entire season. When he’s healthy, he’s a difference maker. But don’t count on him to be there all season.

    Schwartz likes to rotate lineman in and out. I think Ngata may end up being a third down DL. In addition to stuffing the run, he’ll get double teamed on pass plays thus freeing up the speed rushers.

  29. Why do people think I’m a pats fan….I really don’t have a favorite team bc I’m not a little kid…I just like trolling eagle fan’s bc they take it way to seriously.

  30. I like this pick-up but he has always been more of a true NT playing a 0 or 1 technique, should be interesting to see how he fits in.
