If you don’t like any other option the Philadelphia Eagles have, here’s one.

It seems like the following statement was either a long, long time ago or a lie, but we all saw it happen. Prince Amukamara was the 19th-overall selection in 2011’s NFL Draft. Ever since that happened, he’s been someone who has shown potential at times but, more often than not, disappointed more than he’s shown that he was and still is deserving of so much confidence.

Sure, moving Mills from safety back to corner gives Philly some options in the backend, but it also means that there’s no depth at the position. Keeping him there means that both he and Rodney McLeod are the starters, but it doesn’t solve the coverage issues.

Prince Amukamara is an injury waiting to happen at times. He’s played one full 16-game season in his career, and that was 2013. Still, if Philly doesn’t feel comfortable with Trevor Williams playing consistently on the outside, there are some options in the free-agency pool. They aren’t great. Actually, Amukamara is the best one. There’s nothing exciting or solid about Tramon Williams, Trumaine Johnson, Javien Elliott, or Morris Claiborne. You were warned earlier. There aren’t many options out there.
