NFL FREE AGENCY TRACKER 3/23/20: Eagles make moves over the weekend

Malcolm Jenkins essentially played three positions, so to replace him, the Philadelphia Eagles are going to need a committee.

There was the news last week that Jalen Mills would make the move from cornerback to safety. The Eagles added more depth to the position over the weekend with the acquisition of Will Parks, who is a hybrid player and can fill some of the nickel and dime linebacker duties that Jenkins was responsible for. Mills is also outstanding in the red zone, so it wouldn’t surprise me to see Mills take some cornerback snaps while inside the 20 and Parks take the safety snaps.

The Philly native turned down more money elsewhere so he could come home.

The Birds also inked linebacker Jatavis Brown over the weekend, adding depth to a position currently scarce of it.

– XFL QB P.J. Walker to sign with Carolina Panthers
– Raiders sign WR Nelson Agholor to a one-year deal
– Bear agree to one-year deal with Barkevious Mingo
– Patriots sign QB Brian Hoyer to a one-year deal
– Jets sign CB Pierre Desir to a one-year contract
– Saints bring back S D.J. Swearinger on a one-year pact

Here are my thoughts on both moves.
