Haloti Ngata Reportedly to Sign Eagles Contract After 3 Seasons with Lions

The Philadelphia Eagles and free-agent defensive tackle Haloti Ngata reportedly agreed to terms on a one-year contract Tuesday.

Adam Schefter and Chris Mortensen of ESPN first reported the news and noted Ngata intends to sign with Philly once free agency officially opens Wednesday.

The move will represent the end of Ngata's three-year run with the Detroit Lions—which started when the Baltimore Ravens traded him to the Motor City in advance of the 2015 season.

However, it's not surprising the Lions chose not to aggressively pursue a reunion with Ngata.
