The Eagles added another veteran linebacker with starting experience on Tuesday when they agreed to terms with Paul Worrilow on a one-year deal.
The 27-year-old Wilmington, Delaware native played in 13 games (8 starts on the outside) for the Detroit Lions last season. He posted 30 tackles.
Worrilow (6-0, 230) spent his first four seasons in the league with the Atlanta Falcons where he was a key contributor on special teams as well as defense.
In 2013, Worrilow became the first undrafted rookie to ever lead the Falcons in tackles with 137. He followed that up by pacing the Falcons again with 142 in his second season.
This is the Eagles' third move this offseason at linebacker. Nigel Bradham was re-signed to a five-year deal and former Bronco Corey Nelson joined on a one-year contract.
