Eagles signing cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman

CB Nickell Robey-Coleman, Eagles reach 1-year deal

The Eagles' have agreed to sign cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman, as Josina Anderson of ESPN.com tweets. "He's explosive. He's twitched-up". Officials failed to call pass interference against Robey-Coleman, and the play proved critical as the Rams eventually went on to defeat the Saints in overtime to earn a trip to Super Bowl LIII.

A seven-year National Football League veteran, Robey-Coleman gained notoriety during the NFC Championship Game in January 2019 when he delivered a controversial hit to New Orleans Saints receiver Tommylee Lewis with less than two minutes remaining in regulation. He accelerates with quick closing speed after showing patience in press man-to-man coverage, and he is good enough to stick with receivers at the top of their routes.


Robey-Coleman became an unrestricted free agent last week after the Rams declined to pick up the option on the final year of his contract.

Philadelphia made headlines when after signing Slay to a three-year extension is worth a total of $50.5 million to make him the highest-paid cornerback in the NFL. They signed Will Parks, who can play. He lined up in the slot on 42.8% of the Rams defensive snaps last season, according to Player Profiler, and he joins Jones, Maddox and LeBlanc as Eagles corners with slot experience.
