The Philadelphia Eagles are definitely preaching competition in the secondary after adding another slot cornerback in former Rams defensive back, Nickell Robey-Coleman.

The deal guarantees $1 million and could be worth up to $1.3 million, sources told ESPN's Jordan Schultz. Robey-Coleman continues the Eagles' offseason theme of adding versatile defensive backs.

Not with the Rams, who needed to create space within the salary cap and declined 2020 option on the 5-8, 180-pound Robey-Coleman's deal last week.

New pickup Darius Slay will star as the team's primary outside corner while Rasul Douglas, Sidney Jones, and Avonte Maddox are set to jockey for the CB2 spot.

During the Rams' Super Bowl season in 2018, Robey-Coleman limited opposing receivers to 295 yards and under eight yards per reception on 58 targets.

Pro Football Focus rated the 28-year-old Robey-Coleman as the 19th-best cornerback in the entire NFL in 2019.

Robey-Coleman became the latest Rams players to leave via free agency.

Robey-Coleman admitted shortly after the game that the hit probably should have been flagged.

The Rams have three remaining unrestricted free agents - kicker Greg Zuerlein, backup quarterback Blake Bortles and linebacker Bryce Hager.
