Eagles' Rodney McLeod: Staying with Philly
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLeod is re-signing with the Eagles, Ian Rapoport of NFL Network reports.

The Eagles won't pick up their 2020 contract option for Malcolm Jenkins, but they will hold on to the lesser known of their two starting safeties. McLeod was a 16-game starter in 2019, rebounding from a 2018 ACL tear to notch 76 tackles, six pass defenses, two interceptions and two forced fumbles while playing 99.2 percent of defensive snaps. PFF graded him at No. 52 out of 86 qualified safeties, with a 66.2 grade marking his first time below 70.0 since 2014.

Eagles' Rodney McLeod: Plays 17 games in 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLeod played all 16 regular-season games, registering 76 tackles (46 solo), a sack, two interceptions and six pass breakups in 2019. He also logged two tackles (one solo) in the Eagles' wild card loss to Seattle.

McLeod bounced back to his former self after missing most of 2018 with a torn ACL and MCL. He came just seven tackles shy of his career high and recorded just his second career sack. The 29-year-old heads into the offseason scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent, so he could very well be with another team in 2020.

Eagles' Rodney McLeod: Makes two big plays in loss
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLeod made four tackles (three solo) while also recording a sack and an interception in Sunday's 17-9 loss to Seattle.

It was McLeod's first sack of the season and just the second of his eight-year career. The 29-year-old has two interceptions on the year now to go with 56 tackles (33 solo).

Eagles' Rodney McLeod: Ready to rock
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLeod (knee) was a full participant in Thursday's practice.

McLeod was limited in practice to begin the week, and he now appears to have fully overcome his knee issue. Barring any setbacks, he's on track to play his usual starting role Sunday versus the Vikings.

Eagles' Rodney McLeod: Limited with knee injury
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLeod was a limited practice participant Wednesday with a knee injury.

McLeod played every defensive snaps through the Eagles' first four games but missed a couple snaps during Sunday's win over the Jets. The fact the 29-year-old is starting the week still practicing in some capacity keeps him on track to play this weekend.

Eagles' Rodney McLeod: Leads team in tackles
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLeod had nine tackles (six solo) and a pass defensed in Thursday's 34-27 win over the Packers.

McLeod had 13 tackles through the first three weeks of the season but found himself more involved Thursday as the Packers relied on their short passing attack in lieu of a run game. The 28-year-old has played every defensive snap for the Eagles this season and should continue in the every-down role alongside Malcolm Jenkins.

Eagles' Rodney McLeod: Practices in full
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLeod (knee) was a full participant at Saturday's practice, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

This can be viewed as a significant milestone for McLeod, as it marks his first full-time work since tearing the ACL and MCL in his right knee last September. Barring any setbacks, the 29-year-old free safety figures to be a key member of the Eagles' secondary this season.

Eagles' Rodney McLeod: Easing into practice
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLeod (knee) participated in 7-on-7 drills Monday, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

McLeod was limited to individual work during minicamp, and he continues to progress in his recovery from a significant knee injury sustained last September. The next milestone of his rehab will be 11-on-11 reps. The 29-year-old safety projects to play a large role in Philadelphia's secondary when healthy, but it remains to be seen whether he'll manage a full recovery by Week 1.

Eagles' Rodney McLeod: Expects full participation in training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLeod (knee) expects to be full-go for the start of training camp next month, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

McLeod participated in individual drills during this week's minicamp and appears very close to reaching a full recovery from last September's severe knee injury. When healthy, the soon-to-be 29-year-old is slated to serve as a key member of the Eagles secondary.

Eagles' Rodney McLeod: Doing individual work
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLeod (knee) participated in individual drills at Monday's OTA, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

McLeod said in April he wouldn't be available for OTAs while he continues his recovery from the torn ACL and MCL he suffered in September, but his limited participation Monday is a good sign for his progression. The 28-year-old previously believed he would be ready to go for training camp and currently appears on track for that to hold true.

Eagles' Rodney McLeod: Hopeful for training camp
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLeod (knee) said Thursday that while he won't be available for OTAs next month, he could be available for training camp, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. "[I'm] right on pace to come back for the start of the season," the veteran safety said.

McLeod tore the ACL and MCL in his right knee last September and will be about 10 months removed from surgery when training camp rolls around. Even if he is still operating under limitations at that point, there doesn't appear to be much fear that McLeod's recovery will drag into the regular season.

Eagles' Rodney McLeod: Re-works contract for 2019
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLeod (knee) signed a re-worked contract with Philadelphia for the 2019 season, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

McLeod tore his ACL and MCL this past season and was likely to be cut if he didn't agree to a re-worked contract. The specifics of his deal are unclear, but he'll plan on playing for the Eagles for at least another year.

Eagles' Rodney McLeod: Also has torn ACL
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLeod revealed he had surgery to repair a torn ACL along with a torn MCL in September, Les Bowen of the Philadelphia Daily News reports.

It was previously thought that McLeod only tore his MCL, and the addition of the ACL may extend the recovery time even further. McLeod wasn't going to return in 2018 anyway, and eyes were on next year for the Eagles' starting strong safety, who had 10 tackles and four pass breakups in the first four games. With Corey Graham nursing a hamstring injury, Malcolm Jenkins will start at strong safety for the time being.

Eagles' Rodney McLeod: Placed on injured reserve
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

The Eagles placed McLeod (knee) on injured reserve Saturday, Chris McPherson of the team's official site reports.

McLeod went down last Sunday against the Colts and immediately clutched at his right knee, an injury that was confirmed to be a torn MCL on Thursday. Although his season isn't necessarily over, he'll embark upon a lengthy recovery and potentially be considered for activation from IR later this season. With McLeod out for the foreseeable future, the Eagles will turn over strong safety to Corey Graham.

Eagles' Rodney McLeod: Will require season-ending surgery
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLeod was diagnosed Monday with a torn MCL in his knee and will require season-ending surgery, a league source told Derrick Gunn of NBC Sports Philadelphia.

McLeod has served as the Eagles' starting free safety for the last two seasons and change, accruing 148 tackles and six interceptions across 33 regular-season contests. The Eagles were hopeful that McLeod avoided a significant setback after being forced out of the Week 3 win over the Colts, but follow-up tests confirmed that the 28-year-old needed surgery. Expect Philadelphia to place McLeod on injured reserve in the near future, with the team perhaps using the open roster spot to upgrade its depth in the secondary. McLeod's injury will likely press Corey Graham into a starting role at safety alongside Malcolm Jenkins.

Eagles' Rodney McLeod: More tests Monday
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLeod will get tests done on the knee injury he sustained during Sunday's 20-16 win over the Colts, Dave Zangaro of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

McLeod said he felt okay after the game, which is certainly good news after what looked like a possibly serious injury. He had one assisted tackle and a pass defensed prior to his departure.

September 23, 2018 04:56 PM
Eagles' Rodney McLeod: Questionable to return
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLeod left Sunday's game against the Colts with a knee injury and is questionable to return, Reuben Frank of NBC Sports Philadelphia reports.

McLeod originally went down and grabbed his right knee but was able to walk gingerly off the field. In his absence, Corey Graham should see the majority of snaps at free safety.

Eagles' Rodney McLeod: Numbers tumble in 2017
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLeod finished the 2017 regular season with 54 tackles (39 solo), six passes defensed, and three interceptions across 14 games.

The tackle total was a career-low for the five year veteran, and it being the first time he failed to play all 16 games in a season doesn't fully explain the fall-off in production. The 27-year-old came on strong to finish the year at least, as he logged six or more tackles in four of his five final games (including the playoffs) after having made more than four tackles only once in the season's first 14 weeks. He will be back with the Eagles in 2018 and will remain a low-end IDP option.

Eagles' Rodney McLeod: Inactive for Week 17
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLeod (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Cowboys, Jeff McLane of The Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

With little at stake for the Eagles in the regular-season finale, McLeod will be one of six regulars on defense who will be in street clothes. McLeod, who finishes the 2017 campaign with 54 tackles and three interceptions, will likely give way to Corey Graham at free safety.

December 19, 2017 09:00 PM
Eagles' Rodney McLeod: Logs 11 tackles in win
by RotoWire Staff | RotoWire

McLeod recorded a season-high 11 tackles (seven solo) in Sunday's 34-29 triumph over the Giants.

McLeod's previous high in tackles this season was five in Week 13, so his performance Sunday was well above his normal expectation. The 27-year-old free safety saw all 88 defensive snaps and will presumably see another heavy workload in Week 16.
