Former Titans’ S Johnathan Cyprien is signing a 1-year deal with the Eagles, per source.— Adam Schefter (@AdamSchefter) August 2, 2019
The Philadelphia Eagles have signed former Tennessee Titans safety Johnathan Cyprien. Cyprien is recovering from an ACL injury that he suffered almost a year ago.
This move adds much needed depth to the safety room. The Eagles may end up keeping four safeties, Malcom Jenkins, Rodney McLeod, Andrew Sendejo, and now Jonathan Cyprien. However if the Eagles wanted, they could release Sendejo and receive a compensatory 4th round pick. Or this could also be a sign that Rodney McLeod may not be ready for week one.
In his career, Cyprien has 506 tackles, 16 pass deflections, three sacks, and two interceptions in 70 games. Cyprien is known for hard hitting and is very versatile as he can also play LB. Howie Roseman is always looking for ways to improve the roster, and I believe he did just that. This is interesting move by the Eagles and will be fun to watch the safety battle for the rest of Training Camp.
