Best option: Byron Jones. . player. 123. . .

Honorable mention: James Bradberry

Byron Jones isn’t just one of the best cornerbacks of the current free-agent class. He’s one of the best cover guys in the entire NFL and one of the best free agents regardless of position. Philly should exhaust every resource to land him after missing out on safety Minkah Fitzpatrick and cornerback Jalen Ramsey in 2019.

The Eagles defense could be in business if they add Jones, re-sign Jalen Mills, and add a nice young corner in the draft. Circle James Bradberry‘s name too. He’s a nice secondary option if the Panthers don’t franchise him or re-sign him.

. . Worst option: Logan Ryan. . player. 35.

Dishonorable mention: Chris Harris, Darqueze Dennard

Forget what you’ve heard and what you keep hearing. Yes, Logan Ryan made a nice play at the end of the Tennesse Titans upset win over the New England Patriots, but you have to look at more than just highlights.

On a play-by-play and down-by-down basis, the Eagles fans are going to get frustrated very quickly if they give this guy a long-term deal. He’s been solid, but he isn’t a gamechanger. The Patriots let him go for a reason. The same can be said for the Titans. This guy isn’t bouncing around the league for no reason.

Philly would be wise to shy away from Chris Harris. He’s going to be much too expensive for a guy his age. Darqueze Dennard is just too much of an injury risk.
