The Eagles are strengthening their defense after which some.
Thursday, a day after Philadelphia signed two-time Pro Bowl tackle Linval Joseph, it added Ndamukong Suh on a one-year deal.
The 35-year-old celebrated his latest contract, posting an Eagles logo on his Instagram account.

Suh, a five-time Pro Bowler, joins the 8-1 Eagles after their first lack of the season. He’ll help reinforce a defensive position that was exploited by the Commanders within the Week 10 upset.
Combined with Joseph’s arrival, Suh will help make up for the absence of rookie Jordan Davis, whois on injured reserve and out at the very least the following two games.
“We’ve got some guys banged up, so all of us must step up and be higher against the run,” veteran defensive tackle Fletcher Cox said Wednesday. “We’ll be all right. No person is in a panic. We are going to correct our problems. Giving up that much on the bottom, that’s not us. We’re higher than that as a gaggle and we are going to show that.”
A Super Bowl winner with the Buccaneers in 2020, Suh racked up six sacks last season with Tampa Bay before hitting free agency. It appears his patience paid off with a likelihood to chase one other championship ring in Philadelphia.
