Former Eagles safety agrees to deal with Colts
Former captain Rodney McLeod has found his new home.
According to Ian Rapoport, McLeod has agreed to a deal with the Indianapolis Colts.
An integral piece to the Eagles’ Super Bowl run — McLeod signed with the team in 2016, recording 347 tackles and 11 INTs during his tenure.
Alongside his work on the field, McLeod was named the 2022 NFLPA Alan Page Community Award winner. During the season, he held his inaugural Art and Sole Sneaker Ball, which helped raise over $200,000 along with 250 pairs of sneakers and 150 toys for local families in need.
In 2020, the Eagles’ safety and his wife also helped provide 10,000 kids with educational programs focusing on social justice in the Philadelphia area.
This news comes not even a day after it was reported the Eagles met virtually with star free agent Tyrann Mathieu. Philly appears to be in the lead alongside the New Orleans Saints, so letting McLeod walk could indicate they’re confident in landing him.
Even if they don’t bring in Mathieu, Marcus Epps looked great when he filled in last season, and K’Von Wallace could finally be ready for a bigger role on defense. The Eagles quickly signed Anthony Harris earlier this offseason, so losing McLeod won’t be a huge blow.
