Philadelphia Eagles Sign Young Cornerback

Eagles Sign Young Cornerback After He Makes An Impressive Minicamp Performance

This offseason, Philadelphia isn’t holding back when it comes to adding extra depth.
This offseason, the Philadelphia Eagles have specifically worked to strengthen the secondary.

Philadelphia had a fantastic start to the 2023 season, going 10-1 in its first 11 games. The Eagles’ season took a dramatic turn for the worst when they lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the postseason.
With a glaring need at cornerback going into the offseason, the Eagles selected the first two picks in the 2024 National Football League Draft class. Previously viewed as a vulnerability, Philadelphia’s cornerback room is now a strength for the team.

Despite selecting the top two corners in the draft, Philadelphia has persisted in searching for methods to increase depth. Former Ferris State corner Shon Stephens was brought in by the Eagles for a tryout during rookie minicamp, and according to Justin Melo of The Draft Network, he made such an impression that the team signed him.

“The Eagles are signing CB Shon Stephens after a successful rookie minicamp tryout, per source,” Melo stated. “Stephens, the nephew of (Pittsburgh Steelers) great Joey Porter was scheduled to attend Pittsburgh’s minicamp, but the Eagles are getting a deal done.”

Unlike Quinyon Mitchell or Cooper DeJean, Stephens is not as well-known, but he still had a great final year at Ferris State. He made 11 appearances and recorded eight interceptions.
He probably won’t have a big impact on the Eagles right away, but he should help provide a Philadelphia club that needed it some more youthful depth.
