Eagles make second major addition to defensive line

A day after signing one veteran free agent defensive lineman, the Philadelphia Eagles are now adding another. 

Former Detroit Lions and Tampa Bay Buccaneers defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh has agreed to terms on a one-year deal with the Eagles, the team announced Thursday.

Suh, the second overall draft pick by the Lions in 2010, spent the previous three seasons with the Buccaneers, earning a Super Bowl ring after the 2020 season. He will join 12-year veteran Linval Joseph as the Eagles’ most recent additions to the defensive line. The team signed Joseph on Wednesday when defensive tackle Marlon Tuipulotu was placed on injured reserve.

Suh, who has 70.5 career sacks, also played for the Miami Dolphins for three seasons and the Los Angeles Rams for one year before joining the Buccaneers in 2019.
