John Johnson, safety

When camp begins, if nothing changes between now and then, the Eagles will begin their work with five safeties and defensive back Tristin McCollum. Many have hinted that it wouldn't be out of the realm of possibility for Philly to make an addition to the position.

John Johnson didn't pan out with the Cleveland Browns, but we won't hold that against him. Come on. It's the freaking Browns. This young man is only 27 years old, so he has room to improve, but he's just as good as Terrell Edmunds and Justin Evans. He's also already better than Reed Blankenship, K'Von Wallace, and Sydney Brown.

Bryce Callahan, cornerback

Bryce Callahan could be an insurance plan for any team looking for assistance at the slot cornerback position. Philly is satisfied with Avonte Maddox, as they should be. Josiah Scott and Zech McPhearson will battle for the backup role, so the Birds don't really need Callahan, but he's someone that can be kept on standby.

Marcus Peters (The pending wild card at cornerback)

At the time of this story being written and published, the Las Vegas Raiders are giving Marcus Peters a look. NFL Network's Ian Rapoport reports the Silver and Black will host him for a visit and workout on Monday. They also visited with him earlier in the spring, but if they decline to sign him, he's a priority signing for any team with a need at the position.
