Veteran DT Haloti Ngata intends to sign with Eagles

The Philadelphia Eagles are reportedly adding another piece to their defensive line by reaching an agreement with veteran tackle and former Baltimore Ravens standout Haloti Ngata, according to National Football League insider Adam Schefter.

With Beau Allen set to become a free agent, the Super Bowl champion Eagles were in the market for depth at defensive tackle.

Ngata has compiled 31.5 sacks during his 13-year career with the Lions and Baltimore Ravens. He'll be a rotational part of the Eagles' defensive line this coming season.

The Eagles are adding defensive end Michael Bennett via trade with the Seattle Seahawks and already feature a deep and talented line, including interior pass rusher Fletcher Cox.

Also, Denver Broncos linebacker Corey Nelson intends to sign a 1-year deal with the Eagles, a source told ESPN's Josina Anderson.

Needless to say, that production was a far cry from what the Ravens were used to when Ngata racked up five Pro Bowl nods and two All-Pro selections during his nine-season stay in Baltimore.

Ngata only played five games with the Lions last season before suffering a season-ending biceps injury.

Although he has contemplated retirement in the past, Ngata likely didn't want to go out while he was injured.

During his time in Detroit, Ngata managed six sacks and 53 total tackles.
