Philadelphia Eagles bolster special teams on day two of free agency


Early Wednesday morning, the Philadelphia Eagles pulled the trigger on yet another defensive back. This time, the team signed former Seattle Seahawk Chris Maragos to a three-year deal that includes $1 million in guaranteed money.

Signed by the San Francisco 49ers as an undrafted free agent in 2010 out of Wisconsin, Maragos has been primarily a special teams player his entire career. He’s only made 25 tackles over four seasons, yet has been a constant and recognized contributor on the special teams.

The Eagles had three safeties hit free agency yesterday — Nate Allen, Kurt Coleman and Colt Anderson. While the jury is still out on Allen’s return, the addition of Maragos basically seals the fate of the latter two, presumably Coleman.
