Free Safety, T.J. Green
Although the Eagles have a cornerstone player at this position already, there is always room for more in Jim Schwartz’s defense. Schwartz likes to run an “attack” defense with fast, aggressive players and T.J. Green fits the bill.

Green is the type of safety that wants to punish people. Now, it would seem that the Eagles have brought on a big-hitter when they signed Rodney McLeod, but there isn’t anything in the rule books that say you can’t have more than one back-end punisher. And at 6′ 2″, 208lbs, this guy is just that. He’s a big man with big speed. If the Eagles put Green and McLeod on the field at the same time, receivers won’t go near them. Now before you get miffed, I’m not saying Green would, or should, start over Malcolm Jenkins, but it would be one helluva a depth move. Imagine that rotation. Eat your hearts out, Seattle.
The Eagles aren’t in horrible shape, but they need depth. They have struggled with keeping a solid DB group and this could be the year they fix that. Green is a versatile player that can do a little bit of everything. He can blitz, play the run, and cover the slot. Green may not be an instant starter, but he will be an instant contributor. Oh, and did I mention that he can also play corner?
