Joselio Hanson has been with the Eagles since 2006. He is one of the longest tenured players left on the roster.
It seems as though his time may be running out. The Eagles drafted Brandon Boykin in the fourth round, and they really like him.
Boykin is extremely versatile and gives the Eagles another talented return man. He is primarily a nickel corner, too. This is the same position as Hanson, as well. Considering the investment the Eagles made in him, Boykin is certainly a lock to make the roster.
This doesn't necessarily mean that Hanson will get cut, but if he shows any sign of declining play, it will be the end of the line for him.
Dave Zangaro of CSNPhilly.com recently interviewed Hanson. He had some interesting words about the possibility of mentoring Boykin.
I was told I was competing [for the job], he said. If they said we weren’t competing, then maybe I would mentor [him]. But when it’s competition, hey, it’s every man for himself.
That's the right attitude to have from a veteran fighting for a roster spot. It will be interesting to see how Hanson performs the rest of the summer.
