Returns to Philly

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-04-04

Maddox and the Eagles agreed to terms Thursday on a one-year contract, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Maddox has only suited up for 13 regular-season games over the past two years, including just four in 2023 due to a torn pectoral muscle. It makes sense for both sides to reunite on a more team friendly deal now, with Maddox getting a chance to return to form in a familiar system before testing free agency again next offseason. The 28-year-old is capable of contributing at a high level as a nickel corner when healthy.

Gets let go

RotoWire Logo Published: 2024-03-06

Maddox was released by the Eagles on Wednesday, Adam Schefter of ESPN reports.

Maddox has missed much of the last two seasons, only playing 9 games in 2022, while playing just 4 regular season games in 2023 after suffering a torn pectoral muscle in Week 2. His release will save the Eagles $9.6 million in salary cap space, but Schefter notes that the two sides will keep talking and are open to a reunion.

Full participant Thursday

Maddox (elbow) was a full participant in practice Thursday after being estimated as a limited participant in Wednesday's walkthrough.

Maddox spent 13 games on injured reserve with a torn pectoral muscle before returning for the Eagles' Week 17 loss to the Cardinals, but he came away from that game with the elbow issue. However, the cornerback appears to be trending in the right direction for Sunday's matchup with the Giants. Maddox played on 38 percent of the defensive snaps against Arizona.

Now dealing with elbow issue

Maddox was estimated as a limited participant in Wednesday's practice walkthrough due to an elbow injury.

Maddox returned from a 13-game stint on injured reserve Sunday to log 38 percent of Philadelphia's defensive snaps in a loss to Arizona. His time on IR was due to a torn pectoral muscle, but he's now apparently dealing with an elbow issue. Maddox's practice participation during the remainder of the week should provide insight into his chances of missing Sunday's regular-season finale versus the Giants.

Activated off IR ahead of Week 17

The Eagles activated Maddox (pectoral) off injured reserve Saturday.

Maddox missed 13 games after tearing his pectoral muscle in Week 2 against Minnesota. The veteran cornerback logged a trio of limited practices this week and didn't have an injury designation heading into the weekend, so his activation off IR was fully expected. Maddox's return comes at an opportune time for the Eagles, as Darius Slay will miss his third straight game due to a knee injury.

Clear for Sunday

Maddox (pectoral) has no injury designation ahead of Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

Maddox has missed the Eagles' last 13 games with this pectoral issue, and despite not having an injury designation in Week 17, he must be activated to the team's active roster in order to suit up Sunday. The addition of Maddox would be huge for a Philadelphia secondary that's already without Darius Slay in Week 17.

Won't play Week 16

Maddox (pectoral) has been ruled out ahead of Monday's game against the Giants.

Though Maddox was a full participant in Saturday's practice, the 27-year-old cornerback did not get activated off injured reserve and he'll miss Philadelphia's Christmas day contest. With Maddox missing his 13th consecutive game Monday, Eli Ricks and Bradley Roby are expected to see more snaps in the Eagles' secondary.

Takes next step for return

Maddox (pectoral) was designated to return from injured reserve on Thursday.

Maddox can now practice with the team as this move opens his 21-day window before he needs to be placed on the 53-man roster. His potential return this season would certainly be a boost for the Eagles' struggling secondary; however, it's not clear how quickly the Pittsburgh product will suit up again for Philadelphia, but he'll be eligible to do so as soon as Monday against the Giants.

Moving around at practice Friday

Maddox (pectoral) worked out with trainers Friday, Josh Tolentino of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

That he's mobile enough to work out at this point is a promising development for his chances of returning to game action this season. It will be worth scanning for Maddox's name on Philadelphia's injury reports ahead of Week 16.
