The Eagles wrapped up their third and final day of minicamp today. The team will hold a training camp closer to the end of July.
Final 53-man rosters won’t be due until August 29th, but an overcrowded position noticeably stuck out throughout the week.

How Many Corners Are Too Many Corners?

The Eagles announced this morning that they have finally signed Quinyon Mitchell to his rookie contract.

Quinyon was the final rookie of the Eagles 2024 draft class to be signed.

With 14 Corners under contract and over 2 months before any final roster decisions, the Eagles will have a deep secondary. But who will make the cut?

Similar to the last few seasons at defensive tackle, the Eagles have made acquisition after acquisition in the secondary to revamp a defense that gave up 252.7 passing yards a game, ranking 31st in Passing Yards against.

Even with the draft picks, the Eagles will have most of the same secondary they did last season, with the following players returning.

  • Darius Slay
  • James Bradberry
  • Avonte Maddox
  • Kelee Ringo
  • Zech McPhearson
  • Eli Ricks
  • Josh Jobe

With the additions of Quinyon Mitchell, Cooper DeJean, and Isaiah Rodgers, there will be a few odd men out unless something changes with those already under contract.

Having too much depth isn’t a bad thing.

During the last training camp, the Eagles had 5 options at running back before only using 3 throughout the entire season. (We’ll still never know why Swift didn’t play week 1)

But for the Eagles’ corners, things changed throughout the last 3 days, as we’ve seen Kelee Ringo and Isaiah Rodgers at CB2 already. With Mitchell, DeJean, and Rodgers sharing 2nd team throughout the week, the Eagles might finally have the depth if multiple injuries occur once the season picks up.

So, Who’s Out?

During the Eagles minicamp, multiple things came up.

The Eagles seemed to already have assessed the Safety position this offseason, bringing back C.J. Gardner-Johnson on a three-year deal. And if Maddox is ‘learning the safety position,’ that will end up being another depth piece behind those penciled-in starters.

If Bradberry is also getting a change of scenery on the field, perhaps this is the end of the road before getting traded or cut. We’ll have to wait and see, as Bradberry went to the medical tent at the start of the minicamp and wasn’t a participant for the rest of the week.

While I’m sure, there are plenty who may want Bradberry off the team as soon as possible. The Eagles have the cap space committed to the player, and he was a ‘part of the plans‘ (12:04) during the Combine. If there’s a team in desperate need of a corner, Bradberry might be on the block to make room for the new additions to the Eagles.

With another month plus break before more Eagles football. Who do you have making the roster in the secondary?
