Eagles Agree To Terms With Fifth-Round Pick S Ed Reynolds

 

According to Aaron Wilson of the Baltimore Sun, the Eagles have agreed to terms with fifth-round pick S Ed Reynolds.

Reynolds is known as a big-hitting safety, a sought after quality after teams witnessed the impact Seattle’s safeties had on their imposing defense, but also one that could draw a few penalty flags.  He also has prototypical size and good instincts.

Philadelphia’s safeties struggled mightily last season.  The team clearly made upgrading the back end of their defense a priority as Reynolds joins fellow draftee DB Jaylen Watkins, and veteran S Malcolm Jenkins as additions.

Reynolds had six interceptions in his junior season, but followed that up with only one in his senior year.  That drop-off could account for him lasting until the fifth-round.

Still, Reynolds has the physical tools to factor into the Eagles secondary.
