The Philadelphia Eagles have added another Alabama player to its roster following the draft.

Defensive back Eli Ricks signed with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent and confirmed it on social media.

After spending his first two seasons at LSU, Ricks transferred to Alabama in 2022 but was sidelined for the beginning of the regular season as he battled with injuries. In his one year with the Crimson Tide, Ricks appeared in 10 games with five starts and recorded 13 tackles, one tackle for loss and four pass breakups.

Although he has a bit of a history of injury, Ricks has tremendous upside in the pro game.
