Chip Kelly is making moves early on the second day of free agency, adding former Oregon Duck Walter Thurmond III.

Thurmond comes to Philadelphia after being drafted in the fourth round by the Seattle Seahawks. Last season, he took a one-year deal with the Giants in an effort to increase his value and hit free agency agency, but injuries took their toll. Thurmond spent last season with the New York Giants, but injured his pectoral just two games into the season, and missed the remainder of the season. The cornerback from Oregon has a history of injuries, missing 44 games over his five year career. A former teammate of new Eagles cornerback Byron Maxwell, Thurmond is mostly known for being a strong slot corner. He has accumulated 89 tackles, two forced fumbles, and one touchdown in his career.
