ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter joined the John Kincade Show for his weekly hit (Wednesday at 8:20am) to break down the latest with Eagles free agency. The Eagles were not very active in the first day (Monday) as they watched some key contributors signed elsewhere. Like Javon Hargrave who signed a large contract with the 49ers. Marcus Epps who signed a nice contract with the Vikings. And TJ Edwards who signed a big money contract with his hometown team, the Chicago Bears.

Tuesday the Eagles were way more active. They resigned James Bradberry to a 3 year contract, as well as bringing back backup running back Boston Scott. But they also signed running back Rashaad Penny to a 1 year contract in a “prove it” deal. But there are still some key pieces from the 2022 run that are still on the street waiting to be signed. The main one being safety CJ Gardner-Johnson and defensive tackle Fletcher Cox.

“Fletcher Cox is still out there, I think we’ll get something from him today,” Schefter told the group. “Chauncey Gardner-Johnson is still out there, my guess is we’ll get something from him soon. You can’t be a free agent and have it go past 4pm on Wednesday and think you’ll get the price you want.”

The tone in Schefty’s voice led many on the Kincade show to believe that Fletcher Cox would be returning, and CJ Gardner Johnson has not gotten the price on the open market that he thought he would get.

But the draft is a little over a month away. How will having two first round picks effect what the team does in the draft? Schefter weighed in.

“I don’t believe that free agency impacts what they do in the draft,” Schefter said.  “I still think they’re going for the best player, the best defensive player, certain positions they love – edge rushers, corners – and we’ll see who’s available at 10.”
