The Philadelphia Eagles are bringing back a familiar face to the secondary.

The team agreed to a one-year deal with slot corner Avonte Maddox, who they parted ways with back in March, but are bringing him back after playing in only four games last season due to a pectoral injury.

He missed most of the season after tearing his pectoral muscle in Week 2 against the Vikings.

Injuries have been a major issue for Maddox, who has played 13 games the last two years, but he's been a solid contributor when healthy. The former fourth round pick out of the University of Pittsburgh has started 38 starts, and has 31 passes defensed, four interceptions, eight forced fumbles, and 3.0 sacks.


He will compete with guys like Mario Goodrich, Kelee Ringo, Josh Jobe, Zech McPhearson, Eli Ricks, and Isaiah Rodgers if he is reinstated.

The team could also look to add more depth and competition through the draft.

You can listen to the NFL Draft April 25th-27th on 97.3 ESPN.  The Eagles have the 22nd pick in the first-round and pick 50 and 53 in the second round.
