McLeod has signed a deal with the Eagles that is reportedly for five year and worth $37 million, CSN Philadelphia reports. Per the report, $17 million of the safety's contract will be guaranteed, with McLeod now set to join the Eagles' secondary -- presumably replacing converted cornerback Walter Thurmond -- on the heels of a 2015 season in which he recorded 82 tackles and a pick for the Rams.
McLeod recovered a fumble and ran it back for a touchdown in Sunday's 24-6 victory against Cleveland. McLeod is having a fairly solid year, with 29 tackles, a forced fumble, and a fumble recovery in addition to his touchdown. He's about on pace to match last season's 72 tackles, which seems about right for the fourth-year safety.
The Rams have reportedly signed safety Rodney McLeod and tight end Cory Harkey to their restricted free agent tenders, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Caplan. Harkey had eight catches for 55 yards and a touchdown last season while McLeod totaled 72 tackles with two interceptions in 16 games.
The Rams placed a second-round tender on safety Rodney McLeod, per Field Yates of ESPN. McLeod, who was eligible for restricted free agency, will now make $2.356 million next season. He registered 72 tackles, two forced fumbles and two interceptions last season.
The Rams will have their probable players Week 10 against the Cardinals. Jo-Lonn Dunbar, E.J. Gaines, Cory Harkey, William Hayes and Rodney McLeod will all play. All five were listed as probable coming into the contest. Janoris Jenkins, who was listed as questionable, will also give it a shot. Jenkins is dealing with a knee injury. Cody Davis will also try to play. He was questionable on the team's final injury report.
