Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Ronald Darby tested the free-agent market over the past week after suffering a torn ACL back in November. Apparently he didn’t like what he saw.
The Eagles announced on Friday that Darby has re-signed with the team.

According to NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport, the deal is said to be worth $8.5 million over one season. This enables Darby to potentially hit free agency following what he hopes is an injury-free 2019 campaign.
Darby, 25, was an original second-round pick of the Buffalo Bills back in 2015. He was acquired from Buffalo in the lead up to the 2017 season in exchange for wide receiver Jordan Matthews (now of the 49ers) and a third-round pick.
In two seasons with the Eagles, Darby has appeared in 17 games (16 starts), recording 77 tackles, 11 passes defended and four interceptions.
