Eagles defensive coordinator Jonathan Gannon was the talk of last post-season.
He was rumored to be getting a head coaching job on several occasions.
But no one offered one, and he is back for his third year under Nick Sirianni.
He had interviews in Denver, Houston and Minny, and he’ll undoubtedly get more if these Eagles perform as well in 2022 as they are expected to.
The Eagles were a top-10 defense in yards allowed last year, but Gannon’s group struggled in major game-changing categories such as takeaways (just 16, only four teams had fewer) and sacks (31st in the league, with 29).
But the Eagles’ front office gave Gannon new pieces with which to work, including first-round defensive tackle Jordan Davis, free-agent linebacker Haason Reddick and free-agent cornerback James Bradberry.
