The Philadelphia Eagles found some veteran help for their secondary that is in serious need of an overhaul.
Moving away from the splash signings the club used to make under Andy Reid, Philadelphia has added a pair of veterans, signing cornerback Cary Williams to a three-year contract and safety Kenny Phillips to a one-year deal. The Eagles are familiar with Phillips from his NFC East days as a member of the New York Giants.
Williams is yet another defensive player to depart the Super Bowl champion Baltimore Ravens. He wasn’t going to fit in for the team cap-wise, so Baltimore let him move on. Although Baltimore was no doubt hoping to keep inside linebacker Dannell Ellerbe and that didn’t materialize.
