Brandon Boykin is expected to help improve the Pittsburgh Steelers' defensive secondary.
Pittsburgh is upgrading its defensive backfield by trading a conditional fifth-round 2016 pick for Philadelphia Eagles cornerback Brandon Boykin, the Steelers announced Saturday night.
Curry is dangerous from everywhere
Vinny Curry may not be well known, but the Eagles' defensive end hounded offenses for nine sacks a year ago. His ability to line up all over the front could earn him a hefty payday next offseason. Grantland: Sleeper pass-rushers
The Eagles will consider defensive back Byron Maxwell's six-year, $63 million contract worth it if he solidifies their secondary.
Darren Sproles will catch the ball no matter what, and that seems to be the plan going into 2015.

The Eagles appear to be stacked at inside linebacker and thin on the outside.
Kelly on an overspending spree?
The Eagles account for three of the 22 players on Bill Barnwell's list of the league's worst contracts. Two of those were among Chip Kelly's first signings since gaining control of personnel. Grantland: All-bad-contracts team
