Good. He had some rough moments last year but in 2017 he showed his talent. CBs like Darby aren't easy to find.

Default Agreed, Now we have to find 1 good cover corner

as a starter instead of two; and let the guys on the roster fight it out for the slot and Dime.

This is a good thing, IMO. Not perfect, but he's a good player.

They already have options in douglas, leblanc, Maddox, mills and jones. They most likely aren't going to sign another corner.

If they resign Darby I think early draft is off the table, Maddox, Darby would probably start and then fight for the rest. Don't like Mills one bit though and could either move him or try safety.

Default Maddox did show something towards the end of the season

shame Jones is looking more like B, than a starter,,,hope he can turn that around.

YES!


Why are they SO bad at filling that position? If not for Trotter, who the hell have they had in the past 20 years? And they almost messed THAT up...they drafted a dude to replace Axeman.

Draft a difference maker Howie!!

Mills was their best corner in the red-zone. he is actually good in those small spaces. he, like the rest of the corners, struggles with the double move.

He can tackle though and darby can't. That's why he stays on the team for the most part. Maddox is another one that seems to want to tackle.

Darby can’t tackle, yes. But he was the Eagles best cover corner by a long way.

I also think he was their best cover corner as well...but if he left...I wouldn't probably care all that much.

It's not like any of these guys are Eric Allen.

After last season you keep as many CB on the roster as possible

Two of the first three picks are going to be defense, as well. DE/DT/S, some combination of those positions. LB will probably go in the middle rounds.

If they hit on the early picks, the defense will be in really good shape.

Default Nice!

I kinda expected him to stay,,,what I like about this deal is, its a lot like Jefferies deal. You can extend him long term later in the year if you want.
