Prior to Mahe's departure, the Eagles were able to say goodbye to holding specialist Koy Detmer.
Please let Considine be the next Eagle to depart.
One of the few training camp battles will be at the safety position. There are currently 6 safeties on the Eagles roster. Dawkins, Demps, and Mikell should be locks to secure roster spots.
If the Eagles carry 4 safeties, can Considine beat out J.R. Reed and Marcus Paschal? Yes to Paschal and hopefully NO to Reed.
Reed showed consistency, hard hits, and decent coverage ability during his 3 starts last year. Before his shoulder injury Considine showed poor tackling and a knack for blowing coverages.
In eight starts Considine posted 36 tackles and 1 interception. In 3 starts Reed posted 31 tackles and 1 forced fumble.
Considine does bring experience, but with Dawkins back how much does that matter? Reed brings versatility with his ability to return kick offs.
How effective can a safety be retuning from a serious should injury? Lets hope we don't get to find out.
Andy, make it 3 goodbyes and get rid of Considine.
Maybe the Vikings would be interested in another Eagles castoff!
