In 2011, the Eagles used a second-round pick on safety Jaiquawn Jarrett. In 2012, they could be bidding Jarrett adieu.
According to Tim McManus of PhillyMag.com, Jarrett’s rocky showing in the preseason opener against the Steelers resulted in Jarrett losing some of his second-string reps to Tom Nelson.
The move has puts Jarrett in danger of being waived.
“That’s how it rolls,” Jarrett said. “But I’m going to continue to do what I do, go out here and get better.”
Jarrett played at Temple, and he seems to be realizing that the NFL entails a slightly higher level of talent than whatever conference Temple plays in. (Annnnnnd now I’m going to get a nasty letter from Bill Cosby.)
“Every player is faster and stronger and bigger but it’s just about the technique, continue to keep working and taking better angles,” Jarrett said.
An angle he may be taking in the future entails the angle between the exit door and the spot where his car is parked.
