Following the Eagles loss to the Titans in Nashville, it’s becoming obvious that Eagles CB Jalen Mills isn’t having a good season.
Mills got burnt numerous times against the Buccaneers, and gave up a touchdown on the very first play from scrimmage.

Mills had two crucial pass interference calls against the Colts.
And on Sunday against the Titans, the 24-year-old had a crucial pass interference call and numerous crucial mistakes that allowed first downs for Tennessee.

According to Pro Football Focus, Mills also had the most touchdowns allowed in coverage (9) during the 2017 season.
This upcoming week against the Vikings, I personally think Jim Schwartz should either move Mills to the safety position (what he played as in college) or bench him for the game. If he doesn’t do well the week after that (against the Giants), then they should either trade him, release him, or even move him below Rasul Douglas and maybe Avonte Maddox in the depth chart.
