According to a number of sources now, it appears the Eagles are interested in cornerback Corey Graham. CSN Philly's Geoff Mosher mentioned the Eagles' interest in Graham on Monday. Les Bowen of the Daily News made another mention of Graham later in the day.

Bowen expanded upon his tweet in this column. BGN has discussed the possibility of Graham as an Eagles target before in the BGN free agent profile series. Mike Kaye notes that Eagles may have interest in Graham due to his versatility:

At 6-foot and 198 pounds, Ravens free agent cornerback Corey Graham could fit the bill as a hybrid player. He has starting experience at cornerback was actually a Pro Bowl selection in 2011. While he will probably avoid the demand of a huge market as a starter, the Eagles could appeal to him. The front office could pitch him on open competitions at both safety and cornerback, with him being eligible for both. That could be enticing for a player, who at 28, could sign a two-year deal and cash-in afterwards with some solid play at a new position.

Not only does Graham have versatility, but he also plays well on special teams. Then there's the fact he played his college ball at the University of New Hampshire when Chip Kelly was a coach there. Graham really seems to check all the boxes of a potential Eagles free agent target, at least in Kelly's eyes.

Considering the Eagles' need for upgraded talent in the secondary, Graham could be a player that makes a lot of sense.
