Eagles to Workout Veteran Safety

Even after bringing in a host of different defensive backs this offseason, the Eagles still have their eyes on potentially upgrading the position. Today the team is bringing in Johnathan Cyprien for a workout.

Cyprien was a 2nd round pick of the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2013. He has quietly put up a productive six-year career, tallying over 511 tackles while adding thee sacks, four forced fumbles, two fumble recoveries, and two interceptions. He missed all of 2018 after tearing his ACL with the Tennessee Titans in their Training Camp.

Earlier this offseason, the Eagles brought in Andrew Sendejo, Godwin Igwebuike, and Blake Countess to try and sure up the backend of the defense. With Rodney McLeod coming off a torn ACL and Malcolm Jenkins not participating in OTAs, this could be just an "offseason body" situation, but Cyprien is a veteran who could very well perform well enough to make a 53-man roster.

This could also be a way to try and see if the team can find a suitable replace for Andrew Sendejo, because if Sendejo makes the initial 53-man roster, the Eagles will lose a potential 4th-round compensation pick.

We'll just have to wait to see if his workout leads to a signing.
