Instant analysis of the Eagles signing DT Ndamukong Suh to a one-year deal

The Eagles were once again proactive in adding more muscle to the defensive line, agreeing to a one-year deal with defensive tackle Ndamukong Suh.

After being gashed by the Commanders on Monday night, Philadelphia has now added Linval Joseph and Suh to an already talented defensive front.

Here are takeaways and notes from the move.

With the addition of Linval Joseph and Suh, Philadelphia now has five 30-plus-year-old defensive linemen.

For now this is a plus and a need.

The 3 Technique is the defensive pre-snap positioning, where the defensive tackles position themselves on the outside shoulder of the offensive guard. They will be shaded toward the offensive tackle on that side of the field.

Suh’s arrival now ensures that Fletcher Cox never has to play 70 defensive snaps again while keeping the overall unit fresh.

Once Jordan Davis returns, it gives Philadelphia multiple options at defensive tackle while providing multiple looks.
