Per ESPN’s Josina Anderson, former Rams defensive back Nickell Robey-Coleman is signing a one-year deal to play for the Philadelphia Eagles. Back on March 17, the Rams didn’t pick up Robey-Coleman’s option on his contract which made the slot defender an unrestricted free agent.

He spent the last three seasons with the Rams, playing in 47 games with eight starts. His best year statistically came in 2017 after he first came to L.A. He recorded a career-high 49 tackles, a pair of interceptions, nine pass breakups, forcing one fumble and recovering another. In his final season in L.A, Robey-Coleman finished with 35 tackles, seven pass breakups, and two forced fumbles.

The Rams lose one of their most reliable defenders as Nickell has played in every game but one in his career since he was signed by Buffalo as an undrafted free agent back in 2013.
