The Eagles have added another cornerback to their secondary.

Nickell Robey-Coleman told Josina Anderson of ESPN that he has agreed to a one-year deal in Philadelphia. He became a free agent this month when the Rams declined to exercise their option on his contract for the 2020 season.

Robey-Coleman joins Darius Slay as new additions to the Eagles cornerback group. Robey-Coleman’s former Bills teammate Ronald Darby, who started 11 games for the Eagles last season, remains a free agent.

Robey-Coleman spent the last three seasons with the Rams and saw much of his time playing in the slot. He had 122 tackles, three interceptions, three forced fumbles and a fumble recovery while playing for Los Angeles.

  1. Nickell “I made a football play” Ropey-Coleman will always be remembered for not just his deliberate foul vs Saints, but how he described it afterward – effectively admitting his cheat.

  2. The Eagles are working towards the NFL’s version of “positionless defense.” All the guys we’ve signed recently play multiple positions (LB / CB / S / Slot). Will be like chess pieces for Schwartz.

  3. Good signing by the Eagles! Remaking the secondary was the main offseason goal and so far I really like what the Eagles are doing!

  4. I like NRC from the perspective he caused us big problems the past two years when playing the Rams IMO.

    I also like him because he is NOT Sidney Jones.
    Never caught on to Sidney.

  5. The secondary looks great on paper, let’s keep Jones and Douglas on special teams. Leblanc and mill should be subs and dime/qtr formation players.
