Eagles Sign Free-Agent Nickel Cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman

Eagles Sign Free-Agent Nickel Cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman”

The Philadelphia Eagles added another veteran cornerback to their secondary Wednesday, according to multiple reports.

Robey-Coleman was signed by the Buffalo Bills as an undrafted free agent in 2013 after playing collegiately at Southern Cal. The Eagles let safety Malcolm Jenkins walk in free agency and brought back safety Rodney McLeod and defensive back Jalen Mills, who is expected to have a hybrid role. The secondary was of primary concern for the Eagles heading into the offseason, and they've addressed it by signing Robey-Coleman and trading for Darius Slay in the past week.

Robey-Coleman will compete for the starting slot corner job - a post that Cre'Von LeBlanc held down well in 2018 before being hampered by injury last season.

Safeties Rudy Ford and Marcus Epps are also under contract for next season.

Not with the Rams, who needed to create space within the salary cap and declined 2020 option on the 5-8, 180-pound Robey-Coleman's deal last week. Robey-Coleman was set to make $4.5 million with the Rams next season. Officials failed to call pass interference against Robey-Coleman, and the play proved critical as the Rams eventually went on to defeat the Saints in overtime to earn a trip to Super Bowl LIII.

Robey-Coleman has six career interceptions, and he returned two of those for touchdowns.
