Potential Eagles replacements for Anthony Harris: Marcus Williams
Following a First-Team All-Pac-12 nod in 2015 and finding his way into a Second-Team All-Pac-12 election in 2016, Marcus Williams was the 42nd-overall selection during Round 2 of the 2017 NFL Draft, just one spot before the Eagles took another defensive back from the Pac-12, Sidney Jones, at 43.
Williams worked out much better for New Orleans than Jones did for Philly, racking up 320 tackles and 15 interceptions over five seasons. The Saints may move on from Williams this offseason, and if they do, the Birds should take heed. The last time they acquired a former Saints safety, Malcolm Jenkins, things worked out fairly well.
Potential Eagles replacements for Anthony Harris: Marcus Maye
The Birds missed an opportunity to get an extended look at Marcus Maye during their Week 13 visit to MetLife Stadium to meet the New York Jets. His season ended about four weeks earlier when a torn Achilles sent him to the Jets’ injured reserve on November 9th.
In all, Maye missed 11 games during the 2021-2022 season (he was also inactive for Week 4 and Week 5). There are always concerns about what guys will be able to provide after an injury-riddled season, but if Maye is deemed healthy, he’s one of the game’s best at his position.
There’s a possibility that the Jets move on and any interested team can get this young man for a discount. Might the Eagles be interested?
