The Eagles signed seven-year veteran LB L.J. Fort, who has played for the Browns, Bengals, Seahawks and Steelers, mainly as a backup and special teamer.

Fort got a $875,000 signing bonus and base salaries of $1.025 million in 2019 and $1.5 million in 2020 and 2021.

From what I'm reading, I like this signing.  Agile, fast LB  with good instincts, better than your average ILB in coverage.  Not a thumper, not a run guy...Steelers used him for nickel and dime sets, most Steeler fans seem shocked that he escaped, thought for sure he'd be re-signed.

I like that he's experienced, plays STs, etc.

Seems a smart pickup to me.
