Eagles HC Doug Pederson Open To Re-Signing S Corey Graham


Eagles HC Doug Pederson was asked earlier in the week if they were interested in re-signing veteran S Corey Graham.

“If it works out, we’d love to have him,” Pederson replied, via PhillyVoice.com. “His veteran leadership brings a level of not only competition, but depth to the safety room, so if it works out, it would be great.”

The Eagles could use some depth at safety, as they currently have Tre Sullivan, Chris Maragos and three undrafted rookies — Jeremy Reaves, Stephen Roberts, and Ryan Neal — behind Malcolm Jenkins and Rodney McLeod.

Graham, 32, is a former fifth-round pick of the Bears back in 2007. He spent five years in Chicago before signing on with the Ravens in 2012.

The Bills later added him on a four-year, $16,300,000 that included $8.1 million guaranteed in 2014. He was set to make a base salary of $3,225,000 in 2017 when the Bills released last year. The Eagles later signed him to a contract in August and he finished out the year in Philadelphia.

In 2017, Graham 14 games for the Eagles and recorded 38 tackles, two interceptions and four pass defenses. Pro Football Focus graded him as the No. 47 overall safety out of 87 qualifying players.
