This Eagles defensive tackle rotation just got a lot scarier with the addition of Jordan Davis.

There have been questions about what Jordan Davis’ addition means for the guys who are already on the roster. 2021 sixth-round draft choice Marlon Tuipulotu may have a tough path to make the roster now. We believe that third-rounder Milton Williams should be safe.

In terms of the latter, improvement was seen all year during his rookie campaign, particularly down the stretch, and with Philly being deep at the defensive tackle position, Williams, in a rotational role should be fresh and productive all season.

. . Javon Hargrave. 97. player. 54.

Fletcher Cox and Javon Hargrave are in contract seasons, and so far, there’s been no extension. We’ll have plenty of time to dig into that, but we know they’ll be around in 2022.

Hargrave is coming off of a Pro Bowl season, his first. He got off to a torrid start before those double-teams that Fletch used to see started getting thrown in his direction.

He’ll continue to be a factor, but whenever he and Davis share the field at the same time, it’s going to be hard to double either man. That’s good news for both. That’s terrible news for opposing offenses.

The Eagles are going to be hard to run on again, and now, it appears they may be able to generate more pressure in the pass rush as well.
