What Edmunds brings to Philadelphia
The Eagles have a major safety hole after losing CJ Gardner-Johnson and Marcus Epps in free agency. Edmunds gives the Eagles an experienced starter with a first-round pedigree and production record, and he just turned 26 in January.
It’s almost two weeks into free agency and Edmunds is signing a one-year contract for the second year in a row, so expectations should be set accordingly. But he was one of the remaining safeties in the market, giving the Eagles the experience needed for the biggest hole in the roster. —Berman
Where is he ?
If the Eagles were forced to play a game next week, Edmunds would likely start at safety alongside Reed Blankenship, who impressed when he appeared as an undrafted rookie last season. Of course, there’s a lot of time between now and the real Week 1, so Edmunds plays an important role in giving the team cover as a patchwork player in a high-needs position.
We expect the cost to be relatively minimal — he lingered in the market for over a month last offseason before re-signing with the Steelers for $2.5 million — and Edmunds is offering a theoretical advantage given his youth. This seems extremely reasonable. —Wulf
