Eagles Sign A Safety

Written by Tony Ghaul

The Philadelphia Eagles will be signing former Tampa Bay Buccaneers and New Orleans Saints safety Justin Evans, as per Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.

The signing comes a day after the Eagles lost C.J. Gardner-Johnson in free agency to the Detroit Lions.

The 27 year-old Evans was a second-round pick by the Buccaneers out of Texas A&M back in 2016 but was most recently with the Saints in 2022. With the Saints last season, Evans played in 15 games and started four.

The top incumbent safeties on the Eagles roster are Reed Blankenship and K’Von Wallace, after losing C.J. Gardner-Johnson and Marcus Epps in free agency. 

Evans will probably not be penciled into start, but he adds depth to the position.
