The Philadelphia Eagles enter the 2020 NFL season locked and loaded with the bulk of their 53 man roster set.
Entrenched in such a talented roster are several high profile training camp battles at integral positions, with the ramifications trickling down the lineup.
With the acclimation period ramping up and the Eagles just days away from putting on the pads, we breakdown the top position battles:
1. Cornerback opposite Darius Slay
Depending on whom you ask, the job is either Avonte Maddox’s to lose or Sidney Jones’s position for the taking. Slay is entrenched as the Eagles franchise cornerback. The player opposite of him has yet to be determined, but it’ll likely come down to Maddox, Jones, or Rasul Douglas.
Nickell Robey-Coleman and Cre’Von LeBlanc will hold down the slot, and the Eagles could choose to utilize a rotation similar to last season.
