Look at Reuben Frank with the scoop here.
The Eagles signed seven-year veteran LB L.J. Fort, who has played for the Browns, Bengals, Seahawks and Steelers, mainly as a backup and special teamer.
Fort got a $875,000 signing bonus and base salaries of $1.025 million in 2019 and $1.5 million in 2020 and 2021.

Fort actually had what you could probably describe as a career year in 2018. He appeared in 15 games, logging 48 tackles and a sack with three quarterback hits. That was over the course of 305 snaps, which accounted for about 29% of the available defensive plays.
He really shined on special teams, where he played 73% of the snaps, which was more than any other player on the Steelers’ roster. I’d think of him as a LaRoy Reynolds type of contributor, but with much more of a chance to get defensive snaps and compete for a bigger role alongside Kamu Grugier-Hill and Nate Gerry.
Fort is 29 years old and spent the last four seasons in Pittsburgh.
