Darby is still recovering from a torn ACL suffered midway through the 2018 season. Rapoport says Darby could be ready to play by Week 1. If healthy, he’s projected to be Philadelphia’s No. 1 corner.
Darby visited with the Chiefs during free agency this March, but ultimately chose to re-sign with the Eagles on a one-year, $8.8 million deal to try and prove his worth in 2020.
Darby, 25, is a former second-round pick of the Bills out of Florida State back in 2015. The Eagles traded WR Jordan Matthews and a 2018 third-round pick to the Bills in return for Darby in 2017.
Darby played out the final year of his four-year, $4.569 million contract and was testing the open market as an unrestricted free agent for the first time in his NFL career before the Eagles brought him back on a one-year deal.
In 2018, Darby appeared in nine games for the Eagles and recorded 43 tackles, one interception and 12 pass defenses.
