According to PhiladelphiaEagles live, free agent safety LaRon Landry is visiting with the Eagles today.
Safety has been a position with some question marks heading into this offseason. Nate Allen will assuredly return to fill the free safety position but the strong safety position is open for competition.
Kurt Coleman and last year’s second-round pick Jaiqauwn Jarrett are the incumbents and arguments can be made that one of them, especially Jarrett, should improve with experience and solidify the strong safety position.
But neither of them made a strong case for themselves last year and Jarrett did not show enough “promise” to make me feel at ease.
When healthy, Landry is an excellent in-the-box safety and can lay the wood with the best of them. However, health is the key issue when talking about Landry.
He’s been hampered by a problematic achilles tendon the past two seasons, both of which he ended on injured reserve. He fell out of favor in Washington because he has refused to ...

Now, it seems that the Eagles...

It’s starting to get pretty clear that the Eagles are quite content with who they have on defense. After focusing on solely the offense, Philadelphia has spent most of their money re-signing key players and adding a few names to the offensive-line. Missing out on players like linebacker Stephen Tulloch, the Eagles are seemingly waiting for the draft to make a splash.

Yeremiah was a bullfrog, he was a good friend of Todd. I never understood a single thing Reid did, but he could give Bell the nod.
Sorry, couldn’t help myself.
Yeremiah, of course, is Yeremiah Bell, the recently released safety from Miami. And as fate would have it, Bell played the strong safety position for the Dolphins.
The Eagles were interested...

According to Jason LaCanfora of the NFL Network, free agent wide receiver Plaxico Burress has been in contact with multiple NFL teams, including the Philadelphia Eagles.
Burress has made it clear that he’d love to play for the Eagles next season, but so far he remains a free man as he tests the free agent market.
So far, the Philadelphia Eagles have made the smart moves in free agency. They have reworked the contracts of two pivotal players in Trent Cole and Todd Herremans, re-signed their star wide receiver DeSean Jackson to a long term deal, and brought back guard Evan Mathis to cement their starting offensive line for years to come.
Oh, and they brought back 2008 sixth-round draft...
