Eagles choose not to tender Alex Singleton, signs with Broncos

Posted on March 19, 2022

After three seasons with the Philadelphia Eagles, Alex Singleton is moving on. The linebacker signed a one-year deal with the Denver Broncos.

Singleton joined the Eagles in 2019 after playing for the CFL. In his first season, he played ten games on special teams, becoming someone to watch the following year. In Week 4, Singleton joined the game for injured T.J. Edwards, recording his first career interception. Two weeks later, he became Philadelphia’s starting linebacker.

By the end of the season, Singleton led the Eagles with 120 tackles. During the 2021 offseason, the team placed a one-year exclusive-rights free agent tender on him. As one of the team captains, he played in both the starting and back-up position. Nonetheless, he finished as Philadelphia’s leading tackler again with 137.

Despite his tackling record, when targeted, the opposing quarterbacks had a 111.4 passer rating this past season (102.8 in 2020).

A tender this year would have cost at least $2.4 million — the 18th highest cap number on the Eagles. The Eagles decided to forego this, and one day later, the Broncos made a move. Denver signed Singleton to a one-year deal worth $1.1 million guaranteed with another $750,000 in incentives.

The one restricted free agent the Eagles tendered this offseason was offensive lineman Nate Herbig. Philadelphia chose not to tender wide receiver Greg Ward nor running back Boston Scott. However, the team signed both of them to one-year deals.
