    Pederson: Ronald Darby 'very impressive' in Eagles debut

    theredzone.org

    New Eagles cornerback Ronald Darby was impressive against his former team last night in the team's 20-16 preseason victory over the Buffalo Bills, David George of Philadelphiaeagles.com reports.

    After a near interception during the first few minutes, Darby firmly got his hands on the football the second time around. On a pass intended for Bills receiver Anquan Boldin, Darby managed to snatch the ball away clean before running 48 yards in the other direction.

    “It was a blitz, tried to get hit with a double move. I just played it right, got high shoulder, and just went up, attack the ball,” Darby said on his interception.

    Darby was a Buffalo Bill just one week ago. The plays and routes his former teammates ran, although slightly altered, were still fresh in his head.

    “They were running a lot of routes that looked similar. They had receivers stemming at me and running different things, so I was just being patient with everything and just cutting off him,” he said.

    Prior to Thursday’s game, head coach Doug Pederson already planned on getting the corner some reps against Buffalo. To see Darby make good on those limited reps certainly brings added assurance to the secondary.

    “Yeah, it’s very impressive. Very exciting. Encouraging, obviously. He’s definitely going to help us there in the back end,” Pederson said following Thursday’s game. “You kind of credit some of the throws, too, to our defensive line. The pass rush was there tonight and disrupting some of the timing offensively. Our guys were in position to make plays. Mychal Kendricks, again today, and then Darby had the other one. You know, it’s great to see. It’s great to see our defense come up with takeaways and put the offense in good situations.”

    Then Bolden decides to retire. Nice.
