EAGLES COUNTING ON CB ROWE TO HAVE A BREAK-OUT 2016

By Peter Gleason

Eagles second-year cornerback Eric Rowe is looking to have a break-out year.

A year ago at this time, people were so busy talking about Byron Maxwell’s six-year, $63 million contract with the Eagles that few noticed Rowe, a second-round cornerback out of Utah.

Rowe ended up getting more than 500 snaps as a rookie, and, based on Sports Info Solutions charting, he had a higher success rate and allowed fewer yards per pass than Maxwell or any of the Eagles’ other corners.

And now Maxwell is in Miami, E.J. Biggers is with New England and the Eagles are counting on Rowe and Nolan Carroll to be their top corner tandem.
