EAGLES REPLACING OUT-FOR-YEAR MADDOX WITH SLOT BY COMMITTEE?

By Max Harper

The Eagles have six days to come up with a capable replacement for Avonte Maddox in the slot.

They next play next Monday night at Tampa.

Second-year undrafted defensive back Mario Goodrich came in for Maddox against Minnesota, but the team also could move James Bradberry inside once the veteran cornerback clears concussion protocol or put third-round rookie safety Sydney Brown in the slot.

“We feel like we have good options in-house to be able to move forward,” coach Nick Sirianni said yesterday.

“That’s why we cross-train people, whether that’s a corner, whether that’s a safety, whether that’s the guys that play nickel. So we feel like we have good options there.”
