The Eagles shook up their secondary yesterday, releasing projected starting safety Anthony Harris and adding C.J. Gardner-Johnson from the New Orleans Saints.
Gardner-Johnson has worked primarily as a slot corner in the pros but does have safety experience in his background.
He’ll help a defensive back group that includes corners Darius Slay, James Bradberry and Avonte Maddox and up-and-coming safety Marcus Epps.
And here’s who the Birds waived or released:
WR Deon Cain, OT Le’Raven Clark, S Anthony Harris, TE Richard Rodgers, S Jaquiski Tartt, C Cameron Tom, WR Devon Allen, OL Jack Anderson, OL Kayode Awosika, CB Josh Blackwell, RB Kennedy Brooks, S Andre Chachere, WR Britain Covey, LB Christian Elliss, CB Mario Goodrich, CB Tay Gowan, WR John Hightower, RB Jason Huntley, DE Matt Leo, CB Mac McCain III, QB Reid Sinnett, LB JaCoby Stevens, QB Carson Strong, TE Noah Togiai, CB Kary Vincent Jr., DT Marvin Wilson, DT Renell Wren, DT Kobe Smith
Reserve/injured: WR Greg Ward
