Howie Roseman Addresses Eagles’ Secondary Needs Post-NFL Draft: ‘We Just Have To Keep Working’

The Philadelphia Eagles have made gigantic strides this offseason to become a serious contender for the NFC East title. General manager Howie Roseman used his draft capital to acquire AJ Brown while last month he selected Jordan Davis and Nakobe Dean in the same draft – and filled many positions that needed improvement on the list.

While the Eagles have improved their team, they still have some roster gaps that need to be filled. Philadelphia needs some work in the secondary school, an issue Roseman hopes to address this offseason if the front office can make it work.

“We’re always going to come out of a draft with some positions that people are going to go, ‘I wish they were a little bit better here,'” Roseman told JAKIB Media’s Sports Take on Wednesday. “The World Cup team will have some problems this year at the moment.

“We just have to keep working. We’re in a better place than we were. We got through a bad year a few years ago, an embarrassing year and we will continue to build. We’re trying to get back to a position where we can have as much fun again.”

Philadelphia has Darius Slay at one of the outside cornerback spots and Avonte Maddox in the slot. The cornerback spot opposite Slay remains open with Steven Nelson’s departure to the Houston Texans. The Eagles have internal candidates in Zech McPhearson, Tay Gowan, Kary Vincent Jr. and undrafted free agents Mario Goodrich and Josh Jobe battling for the spot. James Bradberry, Trae Waynes, Xavier Rhodes, Kevin King, Joe Haden and Kyle Fuller are the top options available on the open market.

The Eagles safely resigned Anthony Harris and Marcus Epps is the favorite to start opposite him. K’Von Wallace is a candidate for one of the entry-level roles, while Andre Chachere will also deepen the position. The safeties free agent market is not that deep, with Landon Collins and Jaquiski Tartt as top options.

There is a lot to do in secondary school. As Roseman reminded everyone, the Eagles traded for Ronald Darby in August of Super Bowl year (2017) – so there’s time to find an available player. Howie Roseman Addresses Eagles’ Secondary Needs Post-NFL Draft: ‘We Just Have To Keep Working’
