Douglas had been on the trade block earlier this offseason and wasn’t projected to start, so this isn’t entirely a surprise. It is notable to see the Eagles decide to move on from both him and CB Sidney Jones, however.
The Eagles and Douglas also agreed to a pay cut earlier this offseason.
Douglas, 24, is a former third-round pick of the Eagles back in 2017. He’s currently in the final year of his four-year, $3.17 million contract and stands to make a base salary of $754,750 for the 2020 season.
In 2019, Douglas appeared in all 16 games for the Eagles and recorded 35 tackles, no interceptions and 10 passes defended. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 98 cornerback receiver out of 113 qualifying players.
