As the Eagles work towards retooling their roster with younger and cheaper talent, two aging stars will carry the franchise into a new coaching regime.
CBS Sports recently revealed the All 30 and over defensive team for the 2021 season.
The parameters for the list included:
Players must be currently 30 years old (so Aaron Donald is eligible)
Players selected for the team were chosen based on performance from last season. Career performance helps, but last season is the priority.
Five defensive backs and two linebackers were selected since NFL defenses mainly play that personnel. Also helps quality defensive backs get credit for their performance.
No specific positions (ex: inside linebacker, free safety, strong safety)
Based on that scale, the Eagles had two veterans make the list.
