Jarrett, Through the Eyes Of O.J. Atogwe

It is difficult to get a read on Jaiquawn Jarrett. He says little and reveals less. You would have to imagine, though, that he’s going through it right now. To fall from a second-round pick to a question mark for the 53-man roster, in the town you played your college ball in, has to shake you to a certain extent.

O.J. Atogwe has his own issues to deal with. The eight-year veteran is trying to digest a new system and adapt to a new environment in the hopes of solidifying a niche on this Eagles team. But he has at least been around the block enough to know that he can play in this league. It is the type of crutch that the Temple product could really use right about now.

“I think all players go through that cycle of, ‘Am I good enough to play?’ And once you realize you are, ‘O.K., why am I good enough to play?'” said Atogwe. “And once that begins to set in, that’s when you start to maximize your potential and start to make a name for yourself or solidify yourself in this league.”

Jarrett Fighting For His Job

Jaiquawn Jarrett is in jeopardy of falling further on the depth chart.

After a rocky game against the Steelers on Thursday, the former second-round pick saw some of his second-team reps go to the unheralded Tom Nelson Sunday afternoon. When he was drafted, many envisioned the Temple product challenging for a starting spot right away. Now, he’s working with the third unit and fighting for a roster spot.

Jarrett’s Role Still A Mystery

It’s tough to tell whether Jaiquawn Jarrett feels any sense of urgency this summer.

After this morning’s practice, I stopped the Eagles’ second-year safety and asked him a few questions about what he hopes to prove in the next few weeks, and whether he thinks he’ll compete for a starting spot.

“It’s all about competing. That’s what I’m here to do,” Jarrett said. “I’m going to compete for the starting spot. Each safety here’s going to compete for the starting spot. We’re all going to push each other and make each other better.”

Eagles Practice Observations

On one of the first plays today, Nnamdi Asomugha lined up inside against backup tight end Chase Ford. Last year, playing Asmougha inside was simple because the Eagles had Asante Samuel and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie on the outside. But Samuel’s gone, and the new wrinkle today was that Curtis Marsh lined up outside at right cornerback.

Marsh, a third-round pick in 2011, played only 13 defensive snaps as a rookie. But with Samuel gone, he’s looking to fill a bigger role in his second season.

“We rotate. We have different guys that do different things well. It’s by gameplan,” Marsh said.
