Eagles add Kentavius Street, another depth piece for interior defensive line
As the final hours of March begin to trickle away, the Philadelphia Eagles announced another signing on Thursday. This one is a defensive lineman. We bet you didn’t see that coming huh? Ladies and gentlemen, welcome Kentavius Street to the nest.
No one is going to confuse Street with Javon Hargrave. This signing may not come with a ton of fireworks or make headlines. Make no mistake about it though. At this juncture of the offseason with the NFL Draft approaching, this is a solid acquisition. Let’s discuss some of the resume.
Here’s a little background information on Kentavius Street and a quick look at who is sitting on the Eagles’ defensive line ahead of the NFL Draft.
Streeter is a six-foot-two, 287-pounder who joins Philly by way of a one-year deal. His first three years were spent in the Bay Area as a member of the San Francisco 49ers. He spent the 2023-2024 NFL regular season with the New Orleans Saints.
He was on the field for about 518 defensive snaps, roughly 46% of their total. He owns 71 total tackles, 6.5 sacks, and a forced fumble after appearing in 52 regular-season games with four starts over his first three seasons. The questions now are about whether or not he can make the Eagles roster.
He’s buried on the depth chart at the interior of the defensive line behind Fletcher Cox, Jordan Davis, Milton Williams, and, more than likely, Marlon Tuipulotu when he’s added back to the active roster from the injured reserve. Marvin Wilson figures to be who he’ll compete with for a job initially. Time will tell if he’s able to climb ahead of some of the guys we already know.
Rounding out the rest of the roster’s defensive line are Brandon Graham, Tarron Jackson, and Josh Sweat. Matt Leo is also there, but he doesn’t count against the roster’s total number.
Philly also has Derek Barnett and Janarius Robinson sitting on their injured reserve. Defensive line coach Tracy Rocker and defensive ends/outside linebacker coach Jeremiah Washburn are going to have a crowded room when the Birds get back to work and begin putting the 2023 regular-season roster together.
