Eagles Adding Cornerback Nickell Robey-Coleman

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

Of course Josina had it first, which makes me wanna barf everywhere:

Seriously though, the Eagles PR staff needs to start leaking these stories, just to prevent Josina from getting the scoop. Pick anybody – Jimmy Kempski, Dave Zangaro, even Liam over there in England, and give them this information in order to shut down Josina.

Anyway, Robey-Coleman is the guy who committed the non-pass interference in the NFC Championship Game in New Orleans, which caused Saints fans to blow a gasket and resulted in the rule change that was never really enforced. He’s a 28-year-old slot corner and joins Will Parks and Darius Slay as new members of the Eagles’ defensive backfield.

Your secondary now looks something like this:

  • free safety: Rodney McLeod
  • strong safety: Jalen Mills
  • corners: Darius Slay (CB1), Nickell Robey-Coleman (slot/CB2), Will Parks (plays a bunch of different spots), Avonte Maddox (slot/flex/dime safety), Rasul Douglas, Sidney Jones, Cre’Von LeBlanc

It’s a pretty flexible group with Parks and Maddox in there, so we’ll see how the specific roles shake out. Howie Roseman will probably trade Douglas or Jones.

  1. NFL to end its “one helmet rule”. This will allow for teams to wear multiple helmet styles throughout the season. My Eagles source is telling me white helmets with green wings have already been ordered.

    1. Sounds like Kevin is jealous of Josina getting direct information from actual NFL players, while he copies and paste from morbidly obese, Eagles beat writers.
