Mailbag: Need to the Eagles alternate for Jets S Jamal Adams? – PhillyVoice.com


In our Eagles chat final Wednesday, there had been hundreds of questions that we are able to also now no longer score to in time or other questions we did answer nonetheless would maybe maybe also tell extra color. And so, let’s cease a mailbag post to answer to one of the fundamental crucial overflow, as well to some recurrently requested questions about Twitter and through electronic mail.

Demand from John (through electronic mail): Jimmy, I possess love I already know your answer to this, nonetheless I in actuality trust that Jamal Adams would comprise a colossal impact on the Eagles’ protection, and they ought to soundless plod after him. What stutter you?

Adams is in actuality supreme, clearly. In his three years in NJ, he has filled up the stat sheet. Right here’s the build he ranks among safeties, league huge, in the following stats the final three seasons. 

 Jamal Adams Stat  NFL horrid among safeties 
 Tackles 273 
 Tackles for loss 28  1 (closest S had 20)
 Sacks 12   1 (closest S had 7)
 QB hits 23   1 (closest S had 13)
 FF  2
 FR  4
 PBU 25   5

He is superior taking part in shut to the motorway of scrimmage, the build, as you may maybe maybe maybe presumably also leer above, he has racked up colossal-time deal with, TFL, sack, and QB hit numbers. He can additionally duvet, and he gets his palms on hundreds of footballs. Essentially the most efficient ingredient he doesn’t comprise are spectacular INT numbers (2 for his profession), although one would maybe maybe also request these to rise, given his fixed potential to knock down passes.

As such, I cease absolutely agree that he would comprise a colossal impact on the Eagles’ protection. Nonetheless, as you suspected, you presumably cease already know my answer to this. They are able to now no longer give you the cash for him.

Adams wants a contract extension, now, or he needs to be traded, and while the Jets comprise stated that they’re now no longer attracted to trading him, they’d reportedly hear to provides, which formulation, , they potentially are attracted to trading him. I’m able to now no longer vouch for Michael Irvin’s reporting chops, nonetheless this compensation sounds about upright:

Michael Irvin honest texted me on the Jamal Adams rumor: “He is tall in coverage. Jets resolve on a 1st and a Third. He is tall for that locker room that wished Michael Bennett to be in contact up after having honest a donut here…” @1053SS @1053thefan pic.twitter.com/y0aYA9hsr5

So that you can illustrate the worth is certainly a 1 and a 3 in the 2021 NFL Draft. If that is the case, since the Eagles already traded away their fourth-spherical comprise in 2021 for Genard Avery, they’d be left with this:

 Round How acquired 
 2 Eagles hang comprise 
 5 Eagles’ hang comprise 
 5 From Cowboys 
 6 Eagles’ hang comprise 
 7 Eagles’ hang comprise 

After which on high of it, the Eagles would then comprise to extinguish Adams the best-paid safety in the NFL, which is ready to impress no now no longer up to $15 million per season, that they honest scheme now no longer comprise accessible.

So that you may maybe maybe maybe presumably also potentially ignore that one.

Demand from The Kenny: What, if any, 5 avid gamers cease you think will soundless be here in 5 years?

My high 5 most definitely:

  1. Carson Wentz: That is soundless essentially the most rational answer.
  2. Miles Sanders: I feel he becomes a mountainous part of the offense, and the group will feel pleased giving him a 2d contract on account of his extraordinarily low mileage.
  3. Derek Barnett: This will be an unpopular substitute for some, nonetheless he’s a high extension candidate next offseason, because the group will very likely want to lower his 2021 cap collection of $10,051,000.
  4. Isaac Seumalo: He is the most efficient beneath 30 OL starter that the Eagles can feel supreme about long-timeframe for the time being. He is signed through 2022, and will score extended as soon as more if he does minute extra than assist his same level of play from 2019.
  5. Jalen Reagor: I plod to wager on the rookie being extension-grand down the motorway.

Demand from EaglesFan9: The Eagles constantly comprise one colossal special groups ace yearly. Who’s that man this twelve months?

Ya know, I’m now no longer clear I accept as true with the first sentence there. I possess discover it irresistible be been some time since they’d a legit special groups stud. Chris Maragos turned into one, and he final played a stout season in 2016. Bryan Braman turned into positively one, nonetheless he wasn’t effective after 2014. And Darren Sproles hadn’t in actuality completed one thing else as a returner since 2015.

Anyway, I would plod with Duke Riley. After Kamu Grugier-Hill went on IR final season, the Eagles made Riley the special groups captain, even supposing he had most efficient been with the group for love three months. The group went out of their formulation to reward him for his special groups efforts. He feels love a shut to-lock to extinguish the roster, and he’ll be a core special teamer.

Demand from Chalky White: On account of it be being discussed in MLB and it be a copycat world, (would maybe maybe also the NFL realign its divisions)?

No. They already launched the 2020 schedule. But additionally, no, ha. There may maybe be no formulation they’d ever fracture up mountainous rivalries, love the Cowboys and Eagles, as an illustration. It is too colossal of a moneymaker. 

That stated, if I had been tasked with realigning the NFL, fully on geography, I would cease it love so:

  1. Teams nowhere shut to some other groups: Seahawks, Broncos, Cardinals, Chiefs.
  2. California (and frail California): Niners, Rams, Chargers, Raiders.
  3. MAGA central: Cowboys, Texans, Saints, Titans.
  4. Florida/Georgia: Dolphins, Buccaneers, Jaguars, Falcons.
  5. The NFC North: They are able to all cease together, I wager. Packers, Vikings, Bears, Lions.
  6. The Northeast: Pats, Giants, Jets, Funds.
  7. Mid-Atlantic: Eagles, Washington group, Ravens, Panthers.
  8. No person in actuality needs to plod there: Browns, Bengals, Steelers, Colts.

Notify. I feel I love that greater, honestly.

Demand from Jimmy’s sandwich: Now we comprise to take hang of what your signature deli sandwich would be!

Ah, bound. My corrupt. I promised to mailbag this beforehand, nonetheless forgot. I would put together it, exactly as proven beneath. I state, The Jimmy:

Rye bread


White American Boar’s Head cheese, sliced thin

Wavy Lays (recent) potato chips

Cracked pepper turkey, sliced thin

Green apple slices, sliced thin

Rye bread

To be clear, bound, the potato chips are part of the sandwich, now no longer on the facet. (I would essentially be uncommon to interrogate some of your configurations.)
