Player to target #3: Nickell Robey-Coleman, CB
Honestly, the cornerback market with Richard Sherman no longer available isn’t pretty. There aren’t a lot of options out there. Searching through free agency and practice squads, Nickell Robey-Coleman is clearly the best available.
Robey-Coleman has appeared in 126 games and has amassed 334 tackles, 49 passes defended, 6 interceptions, and 5 sacks. He is coming off a sub-par season with the Eagles. However, the entire Eagles defense was in shambles at that point. There was no team, it was each player on an island.
Between 2018 and 2019, he allowed a lowly completion rate of 58 percent. This is around the same numbers as Shaquill Griffin and Stephon Gilmore had last year.
This signing has little risk. If it doesn’t work, no harm no foul. Just release the player. However, there is at least potential that this is an upgrade over the current roster.
