Eagles finally make a move, add depth at safety
With Jalen Mills leaving for New England in free agency and Rodney McLeod recovering from an ACL tear, the Eagles are left pretty thin at safety. The team finally signed a player this morning, adding free agent safety Andrew Adams per Zach Berman of The Athletic:

Adams, 28, won a Super Bowl with Tampa Bay last season. He has 32 starts in five seasons with the Giants and Bucs.
The undrafted product has spent the last three seasons with Tampa Bay, having a productive two-year run before playing just 23 defensive snaps last season:
- 84 tackles
- 12 passes defended
- 5 interceptions
The Eagles worked out Adams in 2018 before he signed with the Bucs and went on to intercept four passes in 13 games. Adams will likely fill the role on special teams left by Rudy Ford, who signed with Jacksonville on Monday.
