PHILADELPHIA, PENNSYLVANIA - JANUARY 01: Darius Slay #2 of the Philadelphia Eagles looks on against the New Orleans Saints during the second quarter at Lincoln Financial Field on January 01, 2023 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania.
Free agency turned around quite quickly for the Eagles. They went from potentially losing James Bradberry, Darius Slay, and CJ Gardner Johnson, to keeping Bradberry and Slay, and still being in on CJ. Quite a change from expectations before the off-season started. And there could still be more on the way. So how did Howie Roseman pull it off? To discuss that, James Palmer from The NFL Network joined The Best Show Ever.
“I think the effort is still there. I don’t think the door has been closed. There are teams that have safety needs that haven’t been filled… If (Howie) finds a way to bring CJ too, it is pretty remarkable. But at the same time, you have to start turning that roster over. And they have a lot of picks. It’s great they brought back these pro bowlers. But they are all 30 or older. You have to make sure you start restocking.
The Eagles have a lot of free agents this off-season. Many of which are on their defense. A defense that was near the top of the league in every stat last season, could be looking very different in the next one. James Bradberry, Fletcher Cox, CJ Gardner Johnson, Brandon Graham, Kyzir White, TJ Edwards, Ndamukong Suh, Linval Joseph, Miles Sanders, and Isaac Seumalo, among other names. Then there is the news that Darius Slay was given permission to seek a trade. Not to mention we are awaiting to see whether Jason Kelce will retire or not. Meaning it could be a very busy free agency period for the Eagles. Even if the business is us watching all of the Eagles players go elsewhere.
The rumors have not been good for the Eagles. Multiple NFL insiders have suggested that nearly all of them could be heading elsewhere. So where will these Free agents land? Will any of them return to Philly? Or will the Eagles roster be left with more holes than a Shia Lebeauf movie? Legal Tampering has begun. Meaning we are starting to learn the news for the big names connected to the Eagles. Follow along here to see all the Eagles’ free agency news. From the players who return, the players who leave, and the new names heading the Philly.
