CB - FA
Free agent CB Nickell Robey-Coleman has agreed to a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles.
The seven-year veteran corner started his career in Buffalo, playing four seasons with the Bills before going to the Rams in 2017. Robey-Coleman has only missed one game in his entire playing career, and should compete for snaps as a slot corner in Philadelphia.
Buffalo cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman had a big day Sunday in his former college stadium at Los Angeles, first jumping a sideline route and returning an interception 41 yards for Buffalo's go-ahead touchdown in the third quarter, then sealing the game with another pick on the Rams' final drive.
They were Robey-Coleman's first two interceptions of the season, and his second touchdown, as he returned a fumble all the way in Week 2. He's a playmaker when on the field, but as Buffalo's nickel corner (playing 58 percent of defensive snaps coming into the Rams game), he depends on big plays to get on the fantasy scoresheet.
Nickell Robey-Coleman picked up a fumble and returned it 36 yards for a touchdown Thursday night. He also had five tackles.
Buffalo's nickel corner was on the field a lot as the Jets dominated time of possession and used three receivers frequently. He didn't have any defensive stats in Week 1, so he should only even be considered when facing a heavy three-wide offense.
