Free Agency: Eagles’ tackle leader set to hit the open market
On the same day they inked Haason Reddick to a $45M deal, the Eagles are letting one of their linebackers enter free agency.
According to NFL Insider Adam Schefter, Philadelphia will not tender restricted free agent Alex Singleton allowing him to hit the open market:

After spending three years in the CFL, Singleton joined the Eagles in 2019 and led the team in tackles over the last two seasons. However, he allowed a 111.4 rating in pass coverage last season, likely part of the reason why Philly is moving on.
The Eagles can still sign Singleton before Wednesday if they choose to; otherwise he’ll be free to join a new team. Singleton has racked up 257 tackles, two INTs (both for TDs), and three fumble recoveries since 2020.
