The Eagles made their big splash in free agency today, but it wasn't the move everyone expected. ESPN's Adam Schefter is reporting that the Eagles are signing nose tackle Javon Hargrave to a three-year deal.
Hargrave spent his first four years in the NFL with the Pittsburgh Steelers, playing in 63 out of a possible 64 games. He put together 168 tackles (22 for loss), 14.5 sacks, 22 QB hits, two passes defended, two forced fumbles, and one fumble recovery for a touchdown.
The Eagles now appear to be set at defensive tackle, as they will have a rotation of Hargrave, Fletcher Cox, Malik Jackson, and Hassan Ridgeway rushing the quarterback from the inside. Howie Roseman will have ~$33 Million left to work with in free agency if he wants to keep making some moves.
