Eagles about to lose a starting cornerback?

NFL: Indianapolis Colts at Philadelphia Eagles Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Free agent cornerback Ronald Darby is set to visit the Kansas City Chiefs, according to a report from NFL insider Ian Rapoport. RapSheet adds that Darby could sign with KC as soon as tonight “if all goes well” with the meeting.

As of Tuesday, Philadelphia reportedly still wanted to re-sign Darby. Darby himself said in a recent interview that the “Eagles really want me to stay where I’m at.

Here’s what I previously wrote about Darby’s outlook:

The problem is that keeping Darby doesn’t figure to be cheap. Spotrac projects his annual value to be worth $13.4 million per year, which seems high. That’s top eight corner money. A few NFL insiders have recently suggested his value could be closer to $12 million. That’s just outside of top 10 corner money.

It’s very possible the Chiefs are willing to pay more than the Eagles can realistically afford to pay Darby. We’ll soon see if that’s the case.

In the meantime, the Eagles are reportedly still “monitoring” Darby’s situation.
