Eagles Re-Sign LB Paul Worrilow

Paul Worrilow‘s ACL tear nixed his debut season with the Eagles, but he will have a chance to make a second impression.

The Eagles and Worrilow agreed to terms on another one-year deal Wednesday. Worrilow signed a one-year pact with Philadelphia last year but suffered the season-nullifying knee injury in May.

This may not lock Worrilow into a surefire role with the 2019 Eagles, but this helps the team keep some experience around for depth purposes. A three-year Falcons starter who saw eight first-string appearances with the 2017 Lions, Worrilow joins Nigel Bradham as an experienced option in Philly. Should Worrilow bounce back and be part of the Eagles’ linebacking corps in 2019, it will be his age-29 season

Jordan Hicks is a free agent, and the Eagles’ cap situation is the NFL’s worst at present. The team is projected to be well over the 2019 salary ceiling, so big-ticket expenditures will be difficult. Young talents Kamu Grugier-Hill (10 2018 starts) and converted safety Nate Gerry are also under contract for 2019.
