Safety is a position that desperately needs to be upgraded, both free safety and strong safety. Kurt Coleman is not a good player, consistently making wrong reads, blowing coverages, and missing tackles. And Nate Allen, expected to make a big comeback this season, was no better.
The position needs an immediate impact player or at least some depth in training camp. If the Eagles address this area in free agency, there are some big names who are now suddenly available.
Ed Reed's services could potentially be acquired, although Charles Woodson may be more realistic. Woodson has had trouble staying healthy, but when he has been 100 percent he has been one of the more consistent players on Green Bay's dismal defense, overall tackling with consistency.
Woodson could instantly solidify potentially a strong safety spot. He is also a leader and could help the Eagles defense play better as a cohesive unit.
While Jairus Byrd and Dashon Goldson are both free agents, don't expect them to hit the open market, as their teams will do everything in their power to retain them.
