The Eagles signed Stephen Tulloch to a one-year deal, Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio reported. Per Florio, Tulloch’s deal includes $1.75 million fully guaranteed, and is worth up to $3 million.

Tulloch has been connected to the Eagles for weeks, with ESPN’s Adam Schefter reporting two weeks ago that the two parties were in “heavy negotiations.” After Joe Walker tore his ACL in Pittsburgh on Thursday, the Eagles’ need for Tulloch increased even more. The linebacker is expected to provide some much-needed depth for a very thin position group.

The 31-year-old played for Jim Schwartz in both Detroit and Tennessee, and was released by the Lions last month. Schwartz said two weeks ago he has “a lot of respect for (Tulloch) and his production.” Many view Tulloch as a two-down linebacker, but similar to the slew of ex-Bills Schwartz brought in, Tulloch could provide some leadership and a thorough understanding of what Schwartz wants.
