​Another one of the ​Philadelphia Eagles' many ​free agents will remain with the team.


Cornerback Ronald Darby is expected to re-sign with the Eagles, according to Ian Rapoport.

Darby had previously met with the Kansas City Chiefs, but he ultimately decided that his time would be best spent with the Eagles.


The 25-year-old is taking a one-year deal while he works his way back from a torn ACL that he suffered in early November of last season. 


He is not expected to be ready for the season opener.

Darby was a critical part of the Eagles' 2017 Super Bowl-winning team that downed the New England Patriots. He led the team with two passes defended against Tom Brady.


During his time with the team, he has appeared in 17 games, pulling down four picks while registering 21 passes defended and 77 total tackles.


Needless to say, he still has a long road of recovery before he can rejoin the Philadelphia secondary. But the Eagles got a critical part of their team back, and he may be the perfect midseason spark for them in 2019.
