Las Vegas Raiders: Previewing the 2021 Philadelphia Eagles
Eagles Offense Outlook
The Philadelphia Eagles’ defense was bad, like Raiders bad last year, but they are hoping they made the right hire to change it around. Johnathan Gannon, the former Indianapolis Colts defensive backs coach, followed Nick Sirianni to Philadelphia to become the new defensive coordinator for the Eagles.
Gannon has coached under a pretty impressive list of coaches, which include Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer, and current Colts defensive coordinator Matt Eberflus. The Eagles made a few interesting moves this offseason by signing former Washington Football Team linebacker/defensive end Ryan Kerrigan, who will be 33 years old by the time the season starts.
It will be interesting to see what he still has in the tank, even though his five and a half sacks would’ve been right behind Maxx Crosby for number two on the Raiders.
They also signed former Minnesota Vikings safety Anthony Harris, who was one player every Raiders fan or writer has pegged to go to the Raiders this offseason to help fix the issues at safety. They also still have All-Pro Fletcher Cox, who has struggled these past two years, not even totaling his sack totals from 2018 combined, but is still a threat to take over a game at any time.
