The Eagles signed safety and special teams ace Chris Maragos to a three-year contract early on Day 2 of free agency, the team announced Wednesday morning.

The modest deal is worth just over $4 million, with $1 million guaranteed and incentives that could bring the total value to about $5.2 million.

Despite his lack of starting experience, Maragos was hotly pursued in free agency, with the Eagles snatching him from the grasp of the NFC East rival Redskins, who were believed to be the favorites to sign him.

Maragos has never started an NFL game but spent the last three years with Seattle as a reserve safety and special teams standout.

This past year, Maragos played just 51 snaps on defense but was on the field for 359 of Seattle’s special teams snaps, or 80 percent.
