2. Avonte Maddox, CB

Back in March, Philadelphia decided to move on from cornerback Avonte Maddox, who had dealt with injuries over the past couple of years and had a cap hit of more than $9 million. 

The Eagles still wanted to keep him in the fold, especially given their issues in the secondary, but not at that salary. Eventually, they came to terms with him on a new one-year deal worth $1.6 million.

Since re-singing Maddox, things have changed in Philly. The addition of Quinyon Mitchell in Round 1 and Cooper DeJean in early Round 2 have them ready for a fresh start at cornerback.

As soon as Mitchell was selected, it was clear he would start over James Bradberry — and DeJean will surely be their CB3 behind Mitchell and veteran Darius Slay.

Ideally, they would prefer to move on from Bradberry, who was a liability in coverage last season. Unfortunately, his salary makes it harder to move him whereas Maddox has a contract that could be shipped off easily to a team that needs depth.

Maddox has been a solid slot cornerback when he’s on the field, but things are suddenly crowded with the two rookies as well as second-year cornerback Kelee Ringo.
