The three-day courtship with cornerback/safety Marlin Jackson is over. The Eagles inked him and his torn ACLs to a two-year contract today.
I loved this guy coming out of college, but you really have to wonder about how much he can give playing on bad knees. He does bring versatility, so maybe he’ll just be used as a rotational guy in the secondary.
Let’s hope the training staff put him through a complete physical. The specter of Stacy Andrews still lingers. According to Marlin, he’ll be ready to go by training camp. Fingers crossed. He’ll also be playing free safety. Macho Harris — this is your wake-up call.
