Training Camp Battle:
By Jacob Brassard
Safety will be the most exciting and must-watch battle for the Eagles training camp in 2023. The departure of both Marcus Epps and CJ Gardner-Johnson leaves both starting spots wide open. The Eagles have an extraordinarily young Safety room with an average age of just 25 years old. To add more excitement to the competition most of the room is new to the organization.
The Eagles acquired both Justin Evans and Terrell Edmunds in free agency this offseason. Evans was a 2nd round draft pick by Tampa Bay back in 2017. Edmunds was selected 28th overall by Pittsburgh in 2018. The newest safety is Sydney Brown out of Illinois University. He was drafted with the 66th overall pick back in April.
The returning players are Reed Blankenship, who got a decent number of snaps with injuries at safety last season, and K’von Wallace now the most-tenured safety on the team. Let's break down this Training Camp Battle.
