The Eagles have done a good job trying to build their secondary by adding Nickell Robey-Coleman this offseason and by trading for Darius Slay. However, the other boundary CB is an issue that is going to fall to whichever young player can perform best.

I’m not saying that Wallace will be better or worse than those guys, but if you had an option to sign a 29-year-old veteran with a higher floor, wouldn’t you sign him for security at least?
