The Eagles will be facing one of their former cornerbacks twice this season, as Ronald Darby is reportedly leaving town to sign with the Washington Redskins.
Darby was initially brought to Philadelphia via a preseason trade with the Buffalo Bills in 2017. He was a part of a defense that helped bring home the first Super Bowl title in Eagles history. The next two years Darby's play was below-average and his seasons were filled with injuries. He initially signed a one-year "prove it" deal last offseason to show off his skills for the Eagles, but he did not impress enough to be brought back again.
In total, Darby played 28 games with the Eagles, recording 114 tackles (two for loss), 32 passes defended (16th-most in Eagles history), and six interceptions. He'll most likely be most-remembered by Eagles fans as the guy who laid his body on the line to make sure Patrick Robinson could complete his pick-six in the NFC Championship Game.
He becomes the second Eagle this offseason to join the rival Redskins, the other being Richard Rodgers.
