Walter Thurmond Contract Information:
Signed a one-year contract with the Eagles in March 2015.
Thurmond, who is competing for a starting safety spot, continues to draw praise from head coach Chip Kelly, the Philadelphia Inquirer reports. "Walt's done a really nice job," Kelly said. "He's probably been our most productive guy in the secondary in terms of pass breakups and strips and things like that. He always seems to be around the ball, so he seems like he's fitting in there right now. But again, we still don't have pads on, we're still evaluating guys with helmets and shorts and T-shirts."

Walter Thurmond: Past News Updates ( ▲ View most recent update )
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Thurmond's first season with the Giants will end after Week 2, a disappointing development for New York's recently signed starting nickel cornerback. With Thurmond out, Trumaine McBride could fill his role moving forward, while Jayron Hosley (suspension) will be eligible to return in Week 5 to provide further depth to a retooled secondary.
Exclusive Fantasy Analysis (FREE PREVIEW)Thurmond has started just eight games in four seasons due to injuries and a recent suspension, but when active, is one of the most effective nickel corners in the league. During his 2013 campaign, which was cut short due to a violation of the league's substance abuse policy, he played in 12 games and racked up 33 combined tackles, as well as a sack and an interception. Now fully reinstated, Thurmond will look to earn a starting job in the Giants' secondary.
RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
There was no outlook written for Walter Thurmond.
Third corner who could push for a starting role.
A fourth-round draft pick, Thurmond saw his 2009 season at Oregon cut short by a knee injury. If the knee holds up, Thurmond will back up one of the cornerback spots and be used in nickle and dime situations.
