Could the Philadelphia Eagles Tap Free Agency to Fill the Void at Safety?

Why take a potentially unnecessary risk?
The draft is a risk. No doubt about it.
The last thing Philadelphia needs is a first-round bust at any position.
Imagine what the hands of Philly veterans Brian Dawkins and Donovan McNabb would look like if the Eagles had picked Chad Ochocinco or Reggie Wayne over “FredEx.” Probably a few more Volkswagen-sized rings.
It baffles me how the Eagles, who usually make good draft decisions, ended up with one of the 15 first round picks that never ended up in the Pro Bowl. But that’s just my opinion, and that is the past.
Now, the Eagles are in need of an upgrade at safety, and most fans are looking to the draft to fill that void. Taylor Mays is the name being thrown around at the moment, even though some scouts are branding him as a bad tackler and generally too big for his own good.
Let’s see if there are any options to fill the space at safety other than the draft.
