Eagles Sign S Kenny Phillips And CB Cary Williams
The Philadelphia Eagles are quietly going about their business as they assemble a tough physical group, opposite of the soft franchise they’ve had the past few season.
Pro Football Talk is reporting that the Eagles have agreed to deals with safety Kenny Phillips and former Ravens cornerback Cary Williams.
Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun reports that Williams’ deal is worth a total of $17 million with $10.5 million in guarantees. Both of those numbers come in slightly below Sean Smith’s deal with the Chiefs, although Williams reportedly has incentives that can kick the total higher.
Phillips is very good when he’s healthy, but has battled knee issues the past few season with the Giants. If he can stay healthy and mesh with Patrick Chung the Eagles quietly will now have a solid safety group.
Williams and Bradley Fletcher now give the Eagles two corners who are solid, and most importantly, physical and not afraid to mix it up.
