When opportunity knocks, open the door. For new Eagles Offensive Coordinator Shane Steichen, the opportunity to coach in the NFL knocked on his door in 2011 when the then-San Diego Chargers offered him a position on its coaching staff. However, it was as a defensive assistant.
I wrote in last week’s mailbag that drafting a pass rusher might be the move that incites the most rage in the fan base. In a vacuum, going defensive end over cornerback makes a ton of sense. It’s a more impactful position than cornerback (I’d even say that safety is more important as the modern “quarterback of the defense”).
The New York Giants have officially waived defensive back Ryan Lewis.
