The cornerback room in Philly is getting pretty crowded, as Nickell Robey-Coleman has signed a one-year deal with the Eagles.
Robey-Coleman has played 111 games in his career with the Los Angeles Rams and the Buffalo Bills. In his career, he has put together 290 tackles (22 for loss), six interceptions (two pick-sixes), 48 passes defended, five sack, eight QB hits, five forced fumbles, and five fumble recoveries (one touchdown). He is most known for his non-pass interference call in the 2019 NFC Championship Game.
The addition of Robey-Coleman means that cornerback room is pretty much at capacity. The team has already brought back Jalen Mills as well as added Darius Slay to their cornerback room this offseason. Right now in addition to the three previously mentioned cornerbacks, also on the roster are Cre'Von LeBlanc, Avonte Maddox, Sidney Jones, and Rasul Douglas. Obviously the team won't keep seven cornerbacks on the roster, so there is something that will need to change. Is there a trade brewing so the team can recoup a draft pick? Will they try to move Maddox or Mills to a full-time safety role?
Lots of questions need to be answered, but for now we know that something will need to budge when it comes to the defensive backs.
