Breaking: Philadelphia Eagles Confirm To Reach Agreement To Sign Top Experienced NFL Star In Free Agency

Eagles Signing Giants’ Top DB Target Would Be a Nightmare Scenario


Giants fans can only hope this doesn’t come to pass. The Philadelphia Eagles are still reveling in their coup over the NY Giants earlier this offseason. Specifically, Howie Roseman signing Saquon Barkley, something that will keep Nick Sirianni smiling for quite a while.

Reluctantly, we must admit that the Eagles have had a robust offseason. Could things improve even further for them? According to Sports Illustrated’s Albert Breer, the Eagles are a team to watch in the Justin Simmons sweepstakes. Simmons would be an ideal acquisition for the Giants, but if Philly makes the move first, it would deeply disappoint Big Blue fans.

Justin Simmons has been rumored to potentially join the Eagles

“The Philadelphia Eagles are a clear contender, given that Simmons’ former coach, Vic Fangio, and his old position coach, Christian Parker, are there. The same could be said for Ejiro Evero with the Carolina Panthers, although the Panthers might not appeal to Simmons. The Atlanta Falcons and Los Angeles Rams also run similar schemes that would suit Simmons.”

However, the Eagles might not need Simmons, especially with the recent announcement that former Giant James Bradberry is transitioning from cornerback to safety. Nonetheless, Simmons is an All-Pro talent, and signing him would only inflate the egos of Roseman and Sirianni even more.

Despite this, we are still hopeful, albeit cautiously, that Joe Schoen will make a move. With Darren Waller set to retire, the Giants will free up more than $11 million in cap space. With Xavier McKinney now in Green Bay, second-round pick Tyler Nubin and Jason Pinnock are slated to start.

While Nubin shows great potential and Pinnock has had promising moments, adding a playmaker like Simmons would significantly bolster this young and inexperienced secondary. It would also send a strong message to Philly. Whether Schoen will make an offer remains to be seen, but if he does, we would fully support it.
