When free agency begins Tuesday afternoon the Philadelphia Eagles appear to be strongly in the market to address the safety position.
The Eagles seem set to go after two of the top safeties that will be on the market. In addition to having interest in San Francisco 49ers safety Dashon Goldson, Geoff Mosher of CSNPhilly.com reports the Eagles are also interested in New York Jets safety Laron Landry.
The Eagles have four safeties under contract for next season including 2012 starters Nate Allen and Kurt Coleman. Despite ranking in the top 10 in passing yards allowed, the Eagles defense ranked as the second worst in the league behind Kansas City in opponent passer rating (99.6).
With Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie set to become a free agent and the Eagles possibly looking to move on from Nnamdi Asomugha as well, Philadelphia’s secondary could have a substantially new look next season.
