McLeod is a relative bargain at the price. He will be 26 before the start of the 2016 season and is coming off a year where he had a career-high four interceptions and three forced fumbles. Alongside Malcolm Jenkins, Philadelphia may be building one of the more formidable safety nets in football. Jenkins was arguably the best player at his position in 2015 and McLeod was not far behind.
He has also never missed a game in his four NFL seasons.
The move marks another solid step taken by the Eagles under Howie Roseman once again. Roseman has been able to shed uncertain assets for draft pick compensation and sign quality players in their absence. If he is able to get a cornerback out of this offseason or draft, it wouldn't be hard to imagine the Eagles in playoff contention.
