The Philadelphia Eagles have agreed to terms with former Seattle Seahawks safety and special teams ace Chris Maragos. Maragos signed a 3-year contract worth slightly more than $4 million, with only $1 million guaranteed.
Maragos, 27, measures in at 5-10, 200 lbs. He's been in the NFL since 2010 when he signed with the San Francisco 49ers as an undrafted free agent. Maragos has never made a start in his career but he has appeared in 46 games over four seasons. He's played sparingly on defense in that time, having recorded a total of 14 tackles (8 assisted), along with 2 forced fumbles and 2 fumble recoveries. Here's a look at his special team numbers:
With Maragos in place, the Eagles now have a total of four safeties on their roster: Malcolm Jenkins, Earl Wolff, and Keelan Johnson make up the other three. Of those four, Jenkins is the only safe be to be a starter. The Eagles can still afford to add another starter depending on how comfortable they feel with Wolff. The signing of Maragos likely signals the end of a career in Philly for either Colt Anderson and/or Kurt Coleman. Both players are unrestricted free agents.
