Says ESPN:

Solving the problem at cornerback might have created holes elsewhere on defense, as Philly declined safety Malcolm Jenkins’ option and released linebacker Nigel Bradham without really replacing either veteran.

Jalen Mills was re-signed and is expected to move to safety, and the Eagles appear set to hand the middle linebacker job to T.J. Edwards after he played 112 snaps as an undrafted rookie.

Former Chargers linebacker Jatavis Brown (above) also could figure in the mix, but if teams feel comfortable avoiding Slay to target other mismatches on defense, the Eagles won’t realize much of an improvement from their long-awaited move.
