Baltimore Ravens insider Aaron Wilson is reporting that former Ravens secondary coach Johnnie Lynn could be headed to Philadelphia as part of Juan Castillo’s defensive staff. The team announced yesterday that Mike Zordich was promoted to secondary/safeties coach, which seemed to open the door for a position coach just for the corners. Off the top of my head, I can’t remember the Eagles having a dedicated corner coach in recent years.
Lynn would bring a ton of experience to the staff having played seven years in the league and coaching for the past 17. As BobQ pointed out, he’s coached secondaries in Baltimore and San Francisco and has also been a defensive coordinator for the Giants.
“I visited with Johnnie before he left,” Singletary said. “All I’m going to say about that is that it’s something I will not comment on. But Johnnie and his family will deal with it, and I lose a good friend.”
