Eagles to be visited by former Jaguars safety Chris Prosinski

The Eagles are evaluating their safety depth.

According to a report from Aaron Wilson of the National Football Post, former Jacksonville Jaguars safety Chris Prosinski will visit the Philadelphia Eagles on Wednesday, October 29.

Prosinski, 27, was originally drafted by the Jaguars in the fourth round of the 2011 NFL draft. The fourth-year veteran was waived/injured by Jacksonville in late September after suffering an elbow injury. Prosinski played in 48 games for the Jaguars but only started nine. He's recorded 72 career tackles to go with one interception, six passes defensed, and one fumble recovery.

If the reaction to Prosinski's departure in Jacksonville by Jaguars fans is any indication, the veteran safety likely isn't being looked at by Philadelphia to come in as a starter. Prosinski could give the Eagles depth at the position, however, which could be needed if Nate Allen's day-to-day hamstring injury proves to be problematic. It's also worth nothing Prosinski led the Jaguars in special teams tackles in 2013 with seven solo stops and two assisted tackles.

A report emerged over the weekend that Philadelphia was looking for a starting-caliber safety to pair next to Malcolm Jenkins. Eagles head coach Chip Kelly downplayed that report, however, and the NFL trade deadline came and passed without the Eagles making a move.
