Ezekiel Ansah won’t be signing with the Philadelphia Eagles. The top free agent pass rusher is joining the Seattle Seahawks on a one-year contract, according to a report from NFL insider Ian Rapoport.
We previously speculated that Ansah could be an Eagles target. Philadelphia could afford to add another pass rusher after trading Michael Bennett and potentially losing Chris Long to retirement. The Eagles also could’ve signed Ansah without him impacting their compensatory pick formula since May 7 has passed.
It’s unclear if the Eagles were really in on Ansah. He reportedly visited with the Seahawks and Bills. Seattle could afford to offer Ansah a lot of playing time since they traded Frank Clark to the Chiefs earlier this offseason. Oh well.
