The Philadelphia Eagles need to find another starting cornerback.

The Philadelphia Eagles front office has done a pretty good job in the early stages of their team’s rebuild. They found under-the-radar free agents that can come in and help this team compete right away. As well as hit on a few selections in the 2021 NFL Draft. Yet, even with these additions, the Philadelphia Eagles defense seems to have a glaring hole on its backend. If they are going to truly compete in the crazy NFC East this year, they need a number two corner.

Fans and the media alike expected the Eagles front office to draft a corner a lot earlier than the fourth round this year (Zech McPhearson). While this isn’t a knock on the rook’ the Eagles can not expect to lean on the youngster right away (we hope we are wrong). The great news is the free-agent market still has a few names worth looking into. Players that have the tools and skillset to come in and compete for the number two cornerback spot right away.

So with that in mind here are three defensive backs the Philadelphia Eagles should consider.
