Former Eagles CB Ronald Darby Heading to Washington
The Eagles have spent a lot of the offseason reshaping their beleaguered secondary, trading for Darius Slay, adding Nickell Robey-Coleman and Will Parks in free agency.
While Sidney Jones, Rasul Douglas, Avonte Maddox and Cre'von LeBlanc will all most likely be back, one guy who will not be back is Ronald Darby, who is staying in the division with the Redskins, with a one-year, $4 million contract.
Darby was traded to Philadelphia before the 2017 season in exchange for Jordan Matthews, but he was constantly plagued by injuries during his Eagles tenure, missing 20 games in the past three seasons.
He started 11 games for the Eagles in 2019, recording two interceptions and braking up 11 passes before his season was ended by a hip injury.
The 26-year old tore his ACL in Week 10 of the 2018 season, but was back and ready to play in 2019.
The former second-round pick was the teams starting cornerback during its 2017 Super Bowl season, playing in eight games, making three picks. He was injured in his first ever game with the Eagles, playing in Washington, when he dislocated ankle he suffered in Week 1.
