The Philadelphia Eagles have one of the best defenses in the NFL, and they got even better by signing two veteran players this week.

The Eagles have signed five-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh, according to multiple reports. The move comes just a day after they added two-time Pro Bowl defensive lineman Linval Joseph to their roster.

Suh spent the last three seasons with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. He posted his second consecutive 6-sack season in 2021 and has 112 total tackles over the last three years. The 35-year-old was very selective during free agency and likely only wanted to play for a contender, which may be why he decided to wait until now to sign with a team.

The Eagles are 8-1 and coming off their first loss. While they rank third in the NFL with just 302.4 total yards allowed per game, their run defense has not exactly been a strong suit. They rank in the bottom half of the league with 124.8 yards allowed per game on the ground. Suh should be able to help in that department.
