Sources: Eagles to add DT Linval Joseph to aid run defense 12:56 PM ET Tim McManusESPN Staff Writer Close PHILADELPHIA -- Two-time Pro Bowl defensive tackle Linval Joseph is planning to sign a one-year deal with the Philadelphia Eagles , sources told ESPN's Adam Schefter. Joseph, 34, started 14 games for the Los Angeles Chargers last season, posting 57 tackles (three for loss), a sack and two quarterback hits. At 6-foot-4 and 329 pounds, he has experience as a space-eating nose tackle -- a position rookie Jordan Davis shined in before suffering a high ankle sprain on Oct. 30 against the Pittsburgh Steelers , landing him on injured reserve. The Eagles have struggled against the run in his absence, yielding 168 yards on the ground to the Houston Texans in Week 9 and 152 yards and two touchdowns in a loss -- their first of the season -- to the Washington Commanders on Monday night.

"So, we'll work like crazy to get it fixed, and we understand that will be the narrative of how to beat us. We have to own that and fix it, and we will." Joseph has played for the New York Giants , who selected him in the second round of the 2010 draft, the Minnesota Vikings and Chargers over his 12-year career. He has 644 tackles and 25 sacks while starting 162 games. He was selected to the Pro Bowl in both the 2016 and '17 seasons.
