Safety Rodney McLeod, Guard Brandon Brooks, and Quarterback Chase Daniel are the newest members of the Eagles.

Rodney McLeod, 25, played the last three seasons with the St. Louis Rams. He started all 48 games and totaled 184 tackles, five interceptions, seven forced fumbles and six recovered fumbles.

Last season Pro Football Focus ranked McLeod as the 10th best safety in football. The Eagles will pair him with Pro Bowl safety Malcolm Jenkins, and could form one of the better safety tandems in the NFL, which is something that hasn’t been said for the Eagles in over a decade.
