McClain also has the contract details:
Chris Polk gets one-year deal for $660,000 base and he can earn a max of $100,000 in per-game, 46-man roster bonuses.— John McClain (@McClain_on_NFL) April 28, 2015
Polk, 25, was previously a restricted free agent but the Eagles rescinded his tender on Friday, making him a free agent. The team reportedly shopped him around, but since Polk had the lowest tender, the Eagles would have received no compensation, giving Polk no trade value. Polk had 46 carries for 172 yards and four TDs for the Eagles last year behind LeSean McCoy after only 11 carries in 2013. But he saw a decrease in special teams playing time, down from 55.8% of special teams snaps in 2013 to 41.2% in 2014, per Football Outsiders. Polk will now compete with Alfred Blue to be the primary backup to Texans starter Arian Foster.
