Eagles coach Andy Reid admitted that he misevaluated safety Jaiquawn Jarrett, a second-round pick in the 2011 draft whom the Eagles dumped last week.
In taking responsibility for the blunder, Reid suggested that Jarrett simply didn’t fit in to the team’s system. The problem is that no one else thinks the player fits in to their systems, either.
Jarrett cleared waivers, and he has yet to be signed. A league source confirms that Jarrett had a midweek tryout with the Jets, who seem to be as interested in safeties as the Pats are in tight ends.
So, basically, though the Eagles viewed him as among the best of the best rookies in 2011, no one deems him worthy of a minimum-salary contract in 2012.
