Eagles film: Who will fill the Brandon Graham void? More on Josh Sweat, Derek Barnett, other candidates

Thursday, September 23rd, 2021

But it’s likely that Josh Sweat and Derek Barnett will both be moved to the left side on occasion. Tarron Jackson was Kerrigan’s backup after Graham left, but the rookie struggled in 11 snaps. Gannon could certainly get away with a three-man rotation with his 4-3 front, but he has also employed a 3-4 with Sweat and Barnett in outside linebacker roles.
