Eagles Take a Shot on Walter Thurmond III with a One-Year Deal
The Eagles have their own "Legion of Boom" now - well not exactly.
Thurmond played in Seattle from 2010-2013, but has been hampered by injuries his entire career, including last year's season-ending pectoral tear.
When he signed with the Giants last off season former NFL personnel director Louis Riddick loved the love saying: "He's a dynamite press corner, who is as good with his technique as Byron Maxwell, as Richard Sherman," Riddick said.
When healthy, the Oregon alum has flashed playmaking ability at slot corner. Thurmond, has good size at 5-foot-11 and 190 pounds and can play both the slot and outside, but most-likely will be given a shot to play on the outside opposite Maxwell here in Philly.
