Inside the Birds: Is This It For Eagles?
An AFC West personnel man gave this quick scouting report to Geoff Mosher on new Eagles safety Will Parks.
"Really good backup with specific role. Don't want him starting 16."
Problem is, right now Parks is an expected starter on an overhauled Eagles defense that has added Pro Bowl corner Darius Slay but lost Pro Bowl safety Malcolm Jenkins and still has holes all over the place.
Parks and linebacker Jatavis Brown were the only moves made by Howie Roseman over the weekend to improve the team. Is there more to come or is Roseman done signing players on the open market?
On the latest Inside the Birds, Mosher and Adam Caplan deliver sourced intel on Parks and Brown and also examine the first week of NFL free agency. Caplan gives inside info on the Eagles' interest in DeAndre Hopkins before the Texans traded the receiver to the Cardinals.
Also discussed: Rasul Douglas on the trade block, wide receivers remaining in free agency, the Eagles' draft strategy, and a former Super Bowl champion the Eagles could look into signing.
