The signing, which is a one-year, $2.25 million deal, cannot become official until the new league year begins on Wednesday. With Beau Allenset to become a free agent, the Super Bowl champion Eagles were in the market for depth at defensive tackle.Joe Douglas, the Eagles'vice president of player personnel, is familiar with Ngata from their time together with the Baltimore Ravens.

The 2014 seventh round draft choice has played the last four seasons with the Denver Broncos.

Ngata just turned 34 years old and is coming off a season in which he played in just five games for the Detroit Lions before needing surgery to fix a torn bicep. Nelson suffered a tear near his elbow during a practice and was placed on injured reserve in late October. He totaled 71 tackles and one sack with six passes defended during his time with the Broncos. In Ngata and Bennett, Philadelphia adds two established players in their 30s to a defensive line that was a key component of the team's Super Bowl championship last month.

The loss of Nelson is significant because of his role contributions in multiple phases. "In my opinion, Corey is a starter". Before the 2017 season, Ngata went to the The Sports Neurology Clinic at the CORE Institute in Brighton, Michigan, for an examination before deciding to play. If he had to play for us, I would have no problem with Corey being a starter for us. In 2016, Broncos ranked 28th in rushing yards (130.3 allowed per game).

At the National Football League combine in Indianapolis last month, Broncos general manager John Elway said he would like to re-sign Davis, and Davis earlier said the feeling was mutual.
