Birds Sign ‘Backer
Eagles Sign Nicholas Morrow
After losing both starting coverage linebackers in free agency last week, the Birds have struck back.
The Philadelphia Eagles have officially agreed to a one-year deal with LB Nicholas Morrow.
— Philadelphia Eagles (@Eagles) March 21, 2023
Morrow spent the 2022 season with the Chicago Bears, who are now set at the position with the signings of former Eagle T.J. Edwards as well as Tremaine Edmunds.
The 27-year-old has been able to stick around the league after going undrafted in 2017. With Chicago, Morrow is coming off of his best season as a pro, registering 116 tackles.
In the previous five seasons, Morrow was a member of the Raiders, becoming a full-time starter in 2020 before missing all of 2021 due to injury.
With the exits of Edwards along with Kyzir White, Morrow now becomes the Eagles’ most experienced and proven linebacker on the roster, giving the team options among a group that includes 2022 third-round draft Nakobe Dean as well as Shaun Bradley and Christian Ellis.
