More breaking news just came our way. The Eagles have officially signed their new starting safety, Rodney McLeod. This will most likely end Walter Thurmond’s time in Philadelphia.

Eagles and S Rodney McLeod have agreed to a five-year deal worth $37 million.
McLeod’s deal will reportedly include $17 million in guarantees.
McLeod, 25, wound up signing on with the Rams as an undrafted free agent out of Virginia back in 2012. He’s played out his rookie contract and was in position to be one of the best available safeties in this year’s free agent class. In 2015, McLeod appeared in all 16 games for the Rams and recorded 81 tackles, one interception, three forced fumbles, one recovery returned for a touchdown, and five pass defenses.
McLeod will reportedly make $9 million in his first season with the Eagles.
Jenkins and McLeod. I like it.
