Safety Spot Up For Grabs

While there are plenty of roster spots up for grabs on Thursday night when the Eagles play the Jets, there's only one position where an opening day starter might be determined by who impresses the most when the Eagles suit up for their preseason finale - free safety.

"Quintin Demps will start the game and I'll just keep a close eye on the safety position," head coach Andy Reid said in his final remarks to the media before the Eagles head up the Jersey Turnpike. "It really doesn't matter what position they're playing back there in the secondary, as far as the safeties go, they'll be able to show me what they can do. We have an open competition there and we'll just see how that works.
