REPORT: Eagles to Workout Former Vikings Cornerback

The Eagles are pretty banged up at cornerback heading into the 2019 season. Jalen Mills is starting the season on the PUP list thanks to a foot injury he suffered halfway through the 2018 campaign, and Cre'Von LeBlanc could miss up to half the season with a similar foot injury. That means the Eagles only have four healthy cornerbacks for their game against the Washington Redskins next Sunday (and we don't really know yet if Ronald Darby is fully healthy from his ACL recovery so in all reality it could only be three healthy cornerbacks on the Eagles roster).

With all of that uncertainty at the position, the team is looking into all options moving forward. They have a workout scheduled for former Minnesota Vikings cornerback Craig James this week.

James signed with the Vikings after going undrafted in the 2018 NFL Draft. He did not make the initial 53-man roster, and was on their practice squad until later in the season when they signed him to the active roster. He ended up playing in three games his rookie year, contributing solely on special teams.

We don't know how he could contribute on defense yet, but the Eagles are always looking for solid special teams options so maybe that is their sole focus with working out James. We'll have to wait until later in the week to find out if his workout results in a signing to the active roster.
