After agreeing to a deal with Jamal Agnew, the Jacksonville Jaguars came to terms with another player who could help them on special teams in former Philadelphia Eagles safety Rudy Ford. Per NFL.com’s Tom Pelissero, he will be joining the Jags on a two-year deal worth $4.2 million.

Ford, 26, was initially drafted by the Arizona Cardinals in the 2017 NFL Draft. He was a sixth-round pick for them, but was eventually traded to the Eagles in 2018 for defensive lineman Bruce Hector.

Ford will join the Jags after participating in 41 games and registering two career starts. According to Eagles Wire, he ranked sixth in Philly in terms of special teams snaps with 213 (47%) and was tied for the sixth-highest total in terms of special teams tackles with five.
