The Eagles have made their first SPLASH (using that term extremely loosely) in free agency by signing Safety Anthony Harris from the Vikings.
Vikings’ free-agent safety Anthony Harris is signing a one-year, $5 million deal with the Eagles, @DrewJRosenhaus tells ESPN.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) March 19, 2021
The reported one year deal is for $5 million. Harris would replace Jalen Mills who left for New England. Our own Geoff Mosher brings up a solid point with this signing. That this has a lot to do with new Eagles defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon wanting to adapt concepts from his former boss Mike Zimmer, the current Vikings head coach.
Harris was an undrafted free agent signing from Virginia. Which means the Eagles now have a safety core led by two guys from Virginia who went undrafted (the other being Rodney McLeod). File that away for the stupid fact of the day. Harris became a starter in 2018 and started every game for the Vikings for the past 2 seasons.
