Ndamukong Suh has agreed to a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles, it was confirmed on Friday. This comes as the Eagles seek to strengthen their defensive line after several players incurred injuries.

Rookie Jordan Davis remains on injured reserve after suffering a high ankle sprain, while Marlon Tuipulotu was also added to injured reserve on Wednesday after he picked up a knee injury during the Eagles’ 31-21 loss to the Washington Commanders on Monday.

In response to these injuries, general manager Howie Roseman decided to beef up his team’s roster, signing Suh exactly one day after securing the signature of fellow veteran tackle Linval Joseph.

Suh played for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last season, before which he represented the Detroit Lions, Miami Dolphins, and Los Angeles Rams. The player was drafted by the Lions in 2010, when he emerged as the second overall pick.

A three-time first-team All-Pro, Suh won Super Bowl LV with the Bucs and has been selected to five Pro Bowls. he has recorded 70.5 sacks and 130 tackles for loss over his 12-year career.
