The Eagles will sign Rams safety Rodney McLeod to a 5-year, $37 million deal with $17 million guaranteed, ESPN's Adam Schefter and other outlets report.

McLeod was one of the top safeties available and signifies that Philly will move on from Walter Thurmond as the counter to Malcolm Jenkins in the Eagles secondary.

McLeod, a 2012 undrafted free agent signee with the then St. Louis Rams, has five career interceptions and had 82 tackles last season. He is touted around the league as a physical safety and will be a good fit for the Jim Schwartz defensive scheme.
