Philadelphia Eagles special teams player of the year: Cameron Johnston

Rudy Ford gets an honorable mention here, but on a team where a well-compensated field goal kicker misses much too often, especially in crucial moments, and guys don’t know when they should and shouldn’t field punts, Philly’s punter, Cameron Johnston has proven to be worth his weight in gold (or, in this case, cash).

Philadelphia Eagles defensive rookie of the year: Alex Singleton (yes, we know that he isn’t a rookie)

We haven’t seen much of Davion Taylor, but when we have seen him, he looked lost more often than not. Shaun Bradley and K’Von Wallace both get grades of ‘incomplete’ because Philly just refuses to play them.

Sure, this technically isn’t Alex Singleton‘s first year in the NFL, but the ITI staff has made an executive decision. Philly’s literal rookies haven’t shown us much. Singleton’s 2020 run basically equates to a rookie campaign, so our staff is taking the Defensive Rookie of the Year Award and giving it to 49.

Philadelphia Eagles Defensive Player of the Year: Brandon Graham

Whenever you hear any story about the Eagles wanting to get younger and less expensive, don’t equate that to Brandon Graham. 11 years after entering the NFL, B.G. has aged like a fine wine. If he doesn’t earn a Pro Bowl nod this year, there needs to be an investigation.
