    Walter Thurmond thriving at safety for Eagles

    Eagles safety Walter Thurmond grabbed a late-game interception and added four tackles in Sunday's 24-17 win over the Jets. In three games, Thurmond has set a single-season career-high in interceptions with two. He picked up a couple in the preseason as well and has routinely been in good position in the secondary during his brief time with the Eagles. For someone playing his first season ever at safety, Thurmond has been the Eagles' anchor next to safety Malcolm Jenkins.

    Eagles' Walter Thurmond moves to safety

    The Eagles have made a lot of moves to improve their defense this offseason, one of which was to bring Walter Thurmond aboard. Most thought he would play cornerback, but Chip Kelly announced Thursday that Thurmond has moved to safety, per Thurmond said the coaching staff approached him about the idea some time ago, giving him the option to compete at either position. "It was a couple weeks ago, just after the draft, they asked me how I would feel about moving to safety,'' Thurmond said. "They said I could stay and compete at corner, or I could move to safety and compete there. After drafting three corners, even though some of them might be safeties, they thought it would be better for me at safety. I'm good with it. I just want to play." The move is intriguing given that Thurmond has never played a game at the safety position, but he isn't concerned too much about that. "I've played it in practice, but never in a game,'' Thurmond said. "In this defense, though, it's not much different than playing in the nickel.''

    DeMeco Ryans likes improved Eagles' defense

    Eagles linebacker DeMeco Ryans likes the changes that the team has made to its defense in the offseason. "We got better on the outside, which we struggled at last year," Ryans said, per ESPN. "We had a lot of struggles there on the outside at the corner position, so I feel we've upgraded there with (Byron) Maxwell , a guy that you've seen make a lot of plays for the Seahawks. A guy like Kiko (Alonso), who his rookie year was a really outstanding player, up for defensive rookie of the year, a playmaker all over the field, and another guy in (Walter) Thurmond , who is expected to definitely push guys to be the starting corner on the other side. So I feel like we upgraded at a lot of positions, and I feel like it's really going to improve our defense."
