Eagles sign CB Nickell Robey-Coleman

Recommended Posts

Unless he experienced a precipitous decline last year, he's quietly been one of the best nickel corners in the league.

Ah yes, the guy who will be remembered for the worst non-call in NFL (maybe sports, period) history...

Don't know much about him, but PFF likes him.

Tell me about him.

Small but physical. Can have issues with the running game due to how little he is, but he'll stick guys on screens. Good in coverage. A little grabby though. Slot only player. Overall, he's not elite, but he's a quality player in the slot. I think most teams would have kept him, but we have a wealth of talent at CB.

Nice signing, what we're doing in the secondary I have no clue...but I like that we are getting good players at least.

This is excellent news for Eagles fans.  PFF rates Nickell Robey-Coleman 16th

among CBs.  Their next best CB is recently acquired 82nd rated Darius Slay,

who is coming off a poor year in Detroit.  If 29 year old Slay can make a

comeback this position becomes one of relative strength overnight.

Doesn't get penalized.

I'd even go as far as to say he's a rule changer.

Clearly they see Maddox as an outside CB or a S and I'm ok with either. Really .

All that matters is Slay, Maddox, Robey-Coleman, LeBlanc, Jones >>>>>> Darby, Mills, Maddox, Douglas, Jones

I really like Robey-Coleman and I like the signing. Im just intrigued by the Eagles looking at so many inside corners, both veterans and draft prospects.
