Eagles to sign DL Haloti Ngata | 3 observations, what it means

With the increasing likelihood that the Eagles will lose Beau Allen in free agency, the team will reportedly bolster its defensive front by signing veteran tackle Haloti Ngata.

And if that's how the Eagles choose to deploy him, they could do worse-especially considering the limited short-term investment for the reigning Super Bowl champions.

Ngata, who played with the Ravens from 2006 to 2014 before signing a free-agent contract with the Detroit Lions.

More than $57 million of the Eagles' salary cap was dedicated to the defensive line for next season before the Ngata deal.

The Ngata deal is yet to become official but the guess here is at his age and coming off a season when he played only five games because of a biceps injury, he will come on the cheap.

The Eagles are adding defensive end Michael Bennett via trade with the Seattle Seahawks and already feature a deep and talented line, including interior pass rusher Fletcher Cox. He had two sacks in those games, however.

He was a large part of Detroit's run defense the past three years and served as a mentor to younger defensive linemen, including A'Shawn Robinson and Akeem Spence. 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. He also was a member of the Ravens' Super Bowl XLVII championship team.

During his time in Detroit, Ngata managed six sacks and 53 total tackles.
