Singleton signed his exclusive rights tender with the Eagles on Thursday. Singleton will return to the team on a one-year deal after breaking out with 120 tackles last season. He's likely ticketed for a starting linebacker role once again this coming season.
Singleton recorded 120 tackles (75 solo), two sacks, one interception, two fumble recoveries, and one touchdown in 2020. Singleton latched on with the Eagles' practice squad in 2019 after playing the previous three seasons in the CFL. He played exclusively on special teams that season, and that remained his primary role in 2020 before a bevy of injuries opened up a starting spot for him in Week 6. The Montana State product wouldn't relinquish the job over the rest of the year, recording fewer than eight tackles just twice over the Eagles' final 11 games. The Nick Sirianni regime could mean a new defensive scheme and different results for Singleton in 2021, but the 27-year-old will almost certainly be back in Philadelphia, as he has more than earned the minimum contract required to keep him.
Singleton recorded 11 tackles (seven solo) and recovered a fumble in Sunday's 33-26 loss to Arizona. Singleton recovered the fumble to end Arizona's first drive of the game at his team's own nine-yard line. The 27-year-old has been a machine since the Eagles' Week 9 bye, making no fewer than 11 tackles in five of his last six games. He's a good bet to do it again Week 16 at Dallas.
Singleton recorded 11 tackles (eight solo) across 63 defensive snaps in Sunday's win over the Saints. Since Week 10, Singleton has been a tackling machine, totaling 55 tackles (35 solo) in those five games. He has also played in 100 percent of the team's defensive snaps over the past four weeks. If he continues to put up these numbers, the linebacker will be a solid IDP option heading into 2021.
Singleton finished with 12 tackles (eight solo) in Sunday's game against Green Bay. Singleton turned in another solid effort, marking the third time in the last four weeks that he's finished with 12 or more tackles. Through 12 contests this season, he's collected 77 tackles (48 solo), one sack, one interception, one defensive score, one fumble recovery and one pass defensed.
