Eagles Workout Two More Cornerbacks Today

As the Eagles prepares for their opening game against the Washington Redskins this Sunday, they appears to be a little thin at cornerback. For now the team only has four healthy cornerbacks on the roster: Ronald Darby, Sidney Jones, Avonte Maddox, and Rasul Douglas. Over the weekend the team held workouts for two different defensive backs with special teams experience: Chris Banjo and Craig James. James seemingly won that workout and it earned him a spot on the practice squad.

It appears that the team is still interested in possibly adding a cornerback before Sunday's game, as today they worked out two more cornerbacks: Briean Boddy-Calhoun and Justin Burris.

Boddy-Calhoun went undrafted in 2016 and was signed by the Jacksonville Jaguars shortly after the draft. He didn't make their final roster but was claimed by the Cleveland Browns. He stayed in Cleveland for three years, picking up 138 tackles, 19 pass deflections, three interceptions, one sack, one forced fumble, and one touchdown. He signed with the Houston Texans this offseason but was cut when the team trimmed its roster down to 53.

Burris was drafted by the New York Jets in the fourth round of the 2016 Draft. He spent a little over two seasons with the Jets before joining the Cleveland Browns' practice squad. In his career he has totaled 39 tackles, seven pass deflections, two interceptions, one forced fumble and one fumble recovery.

We'll likely find out tomorrow if these workouts led to a signing.
