Thurmond (chest) signed a one-year contract with the Eagles on Wednesday, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports.

The Eugene-to-Philadelphia parade continues, as Eagles coach Chip Kelly will add yet another of his former Oregon Ducks to his talent pool. A member of the Seahawks' "Legion of Boom" during their 2013 Super Bowl run, Thurmond latched on with the Giants on a one-year deal, but never played a down in the regular season after he was placed on injured reserve with a torn pectoral muscle. He should be fully healthy heading into training camp with the Eagles, and should receive the opportunity to compete for a starting job. Thurmond has primarily played in the slot during his career, but at 5-foot-11 and 190 pounds, he possesses the measurables to battle receivers on the outside.

The Giants placed Thurmond (chest) on injured reserve Tuesday, Ralph Vacchiano of the New York Daily News reports.

Thurmond underwent surgery Tuesday to repair a torn pectoral muscle that he suffered in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals. He will need 3-to-4 months to recover from the procedure, and will not play again this season. Linebacker Dan Fox was added from the practice squad to replace Thurmond on the active roster.

Thurmond suffered a torn pectoral muscle during Sunday's game and will now miss the remainder of this season, NFL.com reports.

Thurmond's first season with the Giants will be ended after Week 2, a disappointing development for New York's recently signed starting nickel cornerback. With Thurmond out, Trumaine McBride could fill his role moving forward, while Jayron Hosley (suspension) will be eligible to return in Week 5 to provide further depth to the Giants' retooled secondary.

Former NFL personnel director Louis Riddick calls new Giants CB Walter Thurmond III "special."

The Giants were able to steal Thurmond on a one-year, $3 million contract thanks to off-field and injury concerns. "He's a dynamite press corner, who is as good with his technique as Byron Maxwell, as Richard Sherman," Riddick said. Thanks to the Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie signing, Thurmond will likely open the season as a third corner in what is now a very deep unit. He shouldn't have a problem earning a much bigger payday a year from now.

Giants signed CB Walter Thurmond III, formerly of the Seahawks, to a one-year contract.

The Giants are arguably having the best free agency period, not that that necessarily means a whole lot. Thurmond, 26, has good size at 5-foot-11 and 190 pounds and can play the slot and outside. We'd tentatively expect him to start opposite Prince Amukamara. Trumaine McBride will be the No. 3 corner. Thurmond's market was likely affected by his November suspension.

Free agent CB Walter Thurmond III will visit the Jaguars "within the next 24 hours."

All the former Seahawks defenders want to flock to Jacksonville to play for Gus Bradley. Thurmond was thrust into a starting role last season after Brandon Browner was suspended and handled himself well on the way to a Super Bowl title. He already has a four-game suspension on his record, which will affect his market.
