Eagles sign safety Terrell Edmunds to one-year deal
The Philadelphia Eagles added to their secondary.
ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler reported Friday afternoon that 26-year-old safety Terrell Edmunds has signed a one-year contract with the Eagles.
Edmunds was a first-round pick in Virginia Tech’s 2018 NFL Draft. He appeared in 79 games (75 starts) for the Pittsburgh Steelers during his five NFL seasons, recording five interceptions, five sacks and 26 pass breakups.
He’s been a full-time starter for the Steelers since being drafted and will likely fill that same role here in Philadelphia with the loss of both 2022 starting safeties, CJ Gardner-Johnson and Marcus Epps.
He’s a guy who’s more of a box safety and better against the run than the pass, giving up a career-high four touchdowns last season at Pittsburgh.
The team could use Reed Blankenship as another starting safety or look to add another in free agency or the upcoming NFL Draft, where they have picks No. 10 and 30 in the first round.
So right now the Eagles security room looks like this, in addition to Edmunds and Blankenship, they have: K’Von Wallace, Justin Evans, Andre Chachere, Marquise Blair and Tristin McCollum
One option could be to use the No. 30 pick to go down and earn more second- or third-round picks to try and find another safety this season.
