IF EAGLES LET THURMOND GO, RASHAD JOHNSON MAY BE SAFETY VALVE

By Annie Ross

It’s looking like Eagles big boss Howie Boy Roseman is going to let safety Walter Thurmond walk into free agency.

Big mistake.

But if he does, Rashad Johnson’s agent should be his first call.

It is possible the Arizona Cardinals may let Johnson walk due to the embarrassment of riches the team has at the safety position in Tyrann Mathieu and Deone Buccanon.

What makes Johnson enticing is his durability, interception totals and the zero touchdowns he allowed in the regular season.

However, his coverage skills give pause — he finished with negative scores in both 2015 and 2014.

Johnson is a playmaking veteran who would help the Eagles in a number of ways regardless of his coverage mishaps under the Doug Pederson regime.
