Weeding out unnecessary Philadelphia Eagles in the secondary won’t be hard.

Go: Tay Gowan, cornerback

As petty and as lazy as this may sound from the standpoint of research, just knowing the Philadelphia Eagles wanted Tay Gowan late in the draft is a scary thought. You know how they butcher draft picks.

Knowing the Arizona Cardinals were so ready to give up on him so early in his rookie season makes the eyebrow raise as well. Don’t be shocked if this is one of those short stays by another young Eagles prospect that probably has more talent than he’s being given credit for.

Go: Mac McCain III, cornerback

Who? Okay, raise your hand if you didn’t know that Mac McCain III was on this roster. He had a nice collegiate run though, recording a couple of memorable pick-sixes and earning First-Team all MEAC honors after his sophomore season.

He’s also had a lot of injuries as he’s twice seen his season end prematurely due to injury. Hopefully, he’ll get the coach’s attention. Philadelphia signed him off of the Denver Broncos practice squad to their active roster, so they seem to have a lot of faith in him.

Go: Josiah Scott, cornerback

Every time you try to name the top six cornerbacks on the Eagles roster, what you’ll learn is you never do so and get to Josiah Scott’s name, and once the Eagles add some depth pieces in the secondary (and they will).

Go: Andre Chachere, defensive back

An undrafted free agent signing by the Houston Texans in 2018, Andre Chachere has already seen six teams in four seasons, and by the looks of things, Philadelphia won’t be his last stop.

Go: Anthony Harris, safety

Harris is talented but probably serves this team best as a salary they can shed and do a little addition by subtraction. The Eagles only signed him to a one-year, $4 million deal anyway.
