Eagles will take their time sorting out linebackers, slot cornerbacks

Mychal Kendricks is meeting with the Vikings, so it may not be long before he finds a new home after being released by the Eagles last week.

Corey Nelson, Nathan Gerry, Kamu Grugier-Hill, Joe Walker and Cheap Authentic MLB Jerseys LaRoy Reynolds round out the group in Philadelphia.

Schwartz proposed a similar approach at slot cornerback, where the team will be replacing Patrick Robinson. Schwartz said the team is experimenting with different ideas including sliding Jalen Mills inside and looking at players like D.J. Killings, De’Vante Bausby and 2017 second-round pick Sidney Jones as possibilities. Jones missed almost all of last year after injuring his Achilles, but if he restores his form from college he’s likely to find the field somewhere this fall.

Via Mike Klis of 9news.com, Ellis focused not on any team policy but on the NFL’s policy. He also hopes to foster an ongoing dialogue with the players.

And the players seem to be on board with it.

“We have an understanding as players of what needs to be done regarding the national anthem,’’ linebacker Von Miller said. “We were already done with that last year. We came together as a team last year. It’s a situation that we’re already passed last year. So any new policy that the league imposes, it really doesn’t affect us because we were already done a season ago.”

As Klis notes, the team’s leadership council decided after roughly half the players took a knee in the aftermath of the President’s attack on protesting players that all players would stand for the reason of the season.
