Eagles are shopping Rasul Douglas

With the Eagles adding cornerback Darius Slay via trade with the Lions, they can afford to move on from at least one of the guys on the roster who plays that position.

Per multiple league sources, the Eagles are shopping cornerback Rasul Douglas.

A third-round pick out of West Virginia in 2017, Douglas enters a contract year after a not-so-great 2019. He exited the starting lineup after a Week Seven loss to the Cowboys.

Douglas appeared in 16 games last season with six starts. The prior year, he again had 16 appearances, with seven starts. As a rookie in 2017, he played in 14 regular-season games and all three postseason games.

  1. Rasul is straight garbage. Diggs wasn’t even running routes, just running bye Douglas. If you look at the film it was just Diggs either. I don’t know why you would take CB’s in the Big XII nobody plays good defense in that conference.

  2. Good luck with that. While he still has potential and I wouldnt call him a bust, he is still a mid round pick with an expiring rookie deal. Whats that going to get? a 6th rounder?

  3. He would benefit with a move to SS…but the Eagles would take a buy 1 get 1 free Big Mac coupon at McDonalds for him..

  4. Rasul Douglas is big and a good tackler but he is not very fast. So he would make a great safety but Jim Schwartz won’t even try him there which makes no sense to me . Put the man at safety what would it hurt?

  5. BTW, when Eagles fans say he is not fast enough, they mean it.
    He ran a 4.59 at the combine as a CB.

    Its a miracle that the Eagles won the Super Bowl with that slop at CB.
    At least Robinson caught that pressure pick TD from Keenum.

    Philadelphia eagles……the luckiest sb in the history of the nfl.

    Yes they were lucky to score 50 on a BB defense, and shut Brady down at the end of a game twice. Forced him to fumble, and made him have to throw a 50 yard bomb in the hopes they could get a 2 point conversion.

    Being a falcons fan I’d take that super bowl any day of the week. When you beat the best f the best all time it’s rarely luck.

  7. I assume this means he’s about to be cut. No one in their right mind trades for a guy like this.

  8. Douglas came to the Eagles as the all-conference leader in interceptions during his last year at WV and got worse during his time with the Eagles.

    I blame Jim Schwartz and Cory Undlin for the deterioration in his game….and Ronald Darby’s; he came here after being all rookie; and Sindey Jones’s; he came here after being…Sidney freakin’ Jones; how can it be that ALL of these guys were good before they came to Philly and then suddenly weren’t good at football anymore? That doesn’t make sense. Schwartz and Undlin were the common denomonator; after a season or two under that coaching staff, their heads were spinning.

    If Douglas goes to a defense with a coach who lets him trust his football instincts, he’ll be good again.

  9. I also think he can be a good safety and even thrive in the right system as a corner. Maybe a zone scheme. Good tackler and his first couple years he showed he has some ball-hawk in him. He had a limited amount of snaps but I remember him getting a few picks. High-pointing some of them.

    ==================================
    I agree 100%. Perhaps that’s why Unlin is gone. As a unit, those guys got worse with every series, not game or season…but every series. Never seen so many DBs go for double moves or be in coverage and have no idea the ball is coming right to them. It was embarrassing to watch. If the pass rush didn’t apply pressure, it was crap-shoot on the backend of that defense.

    You mean like a guy flypapering a ball to his helmet for the last catch HE WILL EVER MAKE in the NFL kind of lucky?

    Nah. We know who’s that lucky. And the guy who threw it to him.

    Actually, the Eagles led for all but 2-3 minutes of the entire game, Pats were trying to play catch up all day….and gave up the lead when they did get it…Brady had a great statistical day, maybe there’s a trophy for that…but he lost.

    See what we did there?
