Eagles sign S Justin Evans to one-year deal

The Philadelphia Eagles confirmed a one-year contract with safety Justin Evans on Tuesday.

Financial terms of the deal with the 27-year-old free agent were not disclosed.

Evans adds depth at the position after C.J. Gardner-Johnson signed with the Detroit Lions and Marcus Epps made a deal with the Las Vegas Raiders.

Evans recorded 29 tackles (two for losses) and one forced fumble in 15 games (four starts) with the Saints in 2022.

He has 154 tackles, four interceptions and 10 passes defensed in 39 games (25 starts) with New Orleans and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (2017-18), who drafted in the second round in 2017. He missed the 2019-21 seasons with multiple injuries, including a torn Achilles.
