The Eagles added another free agent on Monday, signing the safety of Andrew Sendejo for a one-year contract.
The 31-year-old Sendejo played 324 snaps for the Vikings last season, a total of 27 tackles and a pass deflect. He did not have a lot of time as a nickel cornerback on the line, so this is likely to be the replacement for veteran safety star Corey Graham, who would be unlikely to be back on the team. Last season he missed eleven games with a groin injury.
Here's more about Sendjo, according to the team's official press release:
A nine-year-old NFL veteran, Sendejo (pronounced sin-DAY-ho), has starred in 99 career games (including playoffs) totaling 432 Tackles, seven interceptions and 31
Sendjo joined the NFL in 2010 with the Dallas Cowboys and moved to the 2011 Minnesota Vikings. He played eight seasons in Minnesota and had a breakout season in 2013. This year, Sendejo started playing games at 10 years old and set a career high in tackles (104), adding 13 special bets. After being named Vikings Special Team Player of the Year in 2014, Sendjo received a full-time star role in 2015. He opened 13 games in safety and registered 100 tackles, an interception and six defended passes. Sendino, which dates back to 2015, has started every game in which he has played, registering 308 tackles, six interceptions, 26 defended passes and three re-takes while flickering.
A four-year letter writer at Rice University, Sendjo assembled 318 tackles, nine interceptions and seven forced fumbles during his Owls career.
Although the money in the contract is not yet known, it would be surprising if this deal was much more than a training camp attempt with the Eagle. The team is thin in terms of safety, and although Tre Sullivan in the course of the Season has improved, the Eagles probably want a veteran behind Malcolm Jenkins and Rodney McLeod. With 95 games with NFL experience Sendenjo brings that certainly.
