5. Zach Brown
It seems as though there’s been a revolving door at linebacker since Andy Reid paced the sidelines. Now, that isn’t the case, but sometimes, it does feel that way. Despite a ton of bodies being present for competition during what may be a good camp, Philly doesn’t have that many guys that we’re one-hundred percent sure are inside linebackers.
Keep in mind we’re talking about guys who will actually make the team.
‘The Birds’ will look for Brown to fill the void left by Jordan Hicks. Anyone following this team would want him to stay healthy. Shuffling the deck mid-season doesn’t seem like it would be a ton of fun, nor does it seem like Philly’s easiest path to the postseason.
Timmy Jernigan got a big deal after the Super Bowl, got hurt, got a chance to prove he was healthy, got let go, and got brought back. Nothing about his future past this season is certain unless he does two things.
He has to finally prove he’s fully recovered. He has to show everyone a reason why another team would still bring him in if Philly gets rid of him for a second time.
