Brian Dawkins

         </td>
         <td>

Seven-time Pro Bowl free safety helped redefine the position. Heart and soul of Eagles defense.

Jermaine Phillips

         </td>
         <td>

Big safety can play the run and pass. Has nine picks over the last three years. Can also be a big time hitter. Missed five games this year.

Sean Jones

         </td>
         <td>

Another big safety. He is 220 pounds, but will make plays in coverage. Has 14 interceptions and 25 passes defensed in the last three seasons.

         </td>

Jim Leonhard

         </td>
         <td>

Undersized player came out of nowhere to have a good year in Rex Ryan's defense. Always seemed to be at the right place at the right time. Smart, instinctive player who can be effective in the right situation. Also has some value as a punt returner.

         </td>
     </tr>

         </td>
         <td>

Gerald Sensabaugh

         </td>
         <td>

Talented young player is coming off his best season. His 70 tackles and four interceptions may be overshadowed by some off-field issues that he's had. Could have a bright future if he can play up to his potential.
