The Philadelphia Eagles haven’t made a lot of moves in the secondary this offseason, outside of signing C.J. Gardner-Johnson to a three-year deal. 

The Eagles hope their secondary will be much improved under defensive coordinator Vic Fangio this coming season after allowing 252.7 opponent passing yards per game last season (second-worst in the NFL).

Philadelphia already has a ton of depth at the cornerback position, but Eagles general manager Howie Roseman is always looking to add quality players. On Wednesday, PHLY’s Zach Berman reported that the Eagles signed 25-year-old defensive back Tyler Hall.

The 5-foot-10 cornerback spent the last two years with the Las Vegas Raiders, where he started in six games. This past season with the Raiders, Hall recorded 20 combined tackles and started in three games (appeared in 11 games). 

He also played 22% of defensive snaps in 2023, which was lower than the 2022 season, where he played 49% of defensive snaps. However, Hall only appeared in seven games (started in three).

Before joining the Rams, the former undrafted free agent began his NFL career with the Atlanta Falcons in 2020 and then moved on to the Los Angeles Rams in 2021. 

As we saw earlier this week with the P.J. Mustipher signing, Philadelphia is working on adding depth to their 90-man roster ahead of training camp. Last season, this team was banged up at certain positions and didn’t want to be in a similar position this year.
