The Moves The Eagles Should Make In Free Agency

I will be honest as I always am with my articles. I don’t like the Philadelphia Eagles. It’s purely a personal thing as I have dedicated thousands and thousands of my personal income to help save unwanted or abused animals. When it comes to that, I just look forward and control on what I can control, I do not begrudge anyone for not protesting the quarterback as I have.

We have free will which enables me to protest. It also gives others the right to not judge a franchise by it. I have a dear friend named Greg and we are at total opposite ends of the spectrum on this but it doesn’t get in the way of what’s important. He has always been one of the most reliable people to attend every one of my fund raisers so that I show I judge people. So when it comes to what I feel they need to do to get to the next level it is easy for me to be objective.

Quite frankly unlike everyone else in this city I do not bleed green. So I have took a long look at this team, and also what’s coming available in 2012 and I will give the ”in a perfect world scenario as most unrealistic Eagles fan do but then also get into some serious research and see what realistic options are out there. This will not factor in any potential draft picks that may affect the teams need.

Safety

Best Available :  LaRon Landry ( Was ) – extremely athletic and isn’t afraid to lay the wood to ball carriers. He is in the top 5 of his position. I do not think the Skins can afford to let him get away

What the Eagles should do : Sign Tyvon Branch ( Oak)  This signing would still be somewhat based on potential. But I like this kid. He fills in support at the line of scrimmage. Not quick enough to be effective in man coverage but wont hurt you in zone.

Other options:  Chris Harris ( Det )  Brandon Meriweather ( Chi )

Cornerback

Best Available ;  Brent Grimes ( ATL ) Great in man coverage. Can’t see the Falcons letting him go.

What the Eagles should do : Find a young corner in the draft. Others available names like Carlos Rogers, Cortland Finnegan, Marcus Trufant don’t excite me or really improve what they have.

Linebackers:

Best Available ( Mario Williams )  You would have to break the bank to get Williams away from Houston. Throw in he is coming off a season ending injury after just four games some would say  the price tag is far too much for the risk. Me, I would take him in a heartbeat.

What the Eagles should do:

Dan Connor ( Car ) Bring home the local boy. Dan actually grew up 5 minutes from me. Each year he has been nagged by injuries and he has been bouncing from starter to back up in a talent rich Panther Linebacking core. The Panthers have committed money at other positions keeping some of their key people after last years season. He comes cheap and would be an immediate upgrade.

Other options:

Stephen Tulloch ( Det ) The Eagles actually thought about bringing him in last year. It may be difficult to get him away from Detroit. The Lions are weak at LB but also recognize the need for quality unlike your hometown squad.

E. J Henderson ( Minn )  In my opinion very underrated. Getting up there just a bit in years but would walk in and be the best the Eagles had minute one

Defensive Line

Best Available ; Robert Mathis ( Ind ) Here is a guy who I think the Birds can actually go after and get. Mathis is not a happy camper in Indy. He has been asking for a long term commitment from the and has not received the warm welcoming response he thought he would get. He can cause nightmares for opposing Quarterbacks

Other Options:

Calais Campbell ( Arz ) DE  Again based more on potential but this guy has a non stop motor. I like this guy a lot he is a very productive player.

Also : John Abraham, Antonio Garay, Cliff Avril

Wide receiver:  If you lose DeSean Jackson, there is another Jackson that is a no brainer, Vincent Jackson  Often injured but this guy is huge and makes big plays. A true #1 and wants to be paid like it.

Other Options:

DeSean Jackson, Dwayne Bowe, Reggie Wayne, Steve Johnson, Wes Welker, Marques Colston, Brandon Lloyd.   Talent rich year at WR.

Running back:

Best Available:

Ray Rice

Matt Forte

What the Eagles should do:

The Eagles have a franchise back; But there is a guy available that I absolutely love and would give them what they sorely lack in that in between the tackle short yardage runner to get you that tough two yards. They should over pay for Mike Tolbert from San Diego. A powerful do everything running back. Would complete an unbelievable 1-2 punch for Philadelphia for the next 3 years.

Other options: Peyton Hillis, Marshawn Lynch,  Cedric Benson, Ben-Jarvus-Green-Ellis

Charles Bowles

Hey CHuck,
Some good info but quite a few players you listed have either been franchised or have signed new deals with their Current Teams

Safety Tyvon Branch (Franchised by the Raiders)
CB B Grimes (Franchised by the Falcons)
DE R Mathis (signed a new deal with the Colts)
DE C Avril (Franchised by the Lions)
WR W Welker (Franchised by the Pats)
WR D Bowe (Franchised by the KC Chiefs)
DL C Campbell (Franchised by the Cardinals)
And I am sure I missed a couple of others, but the good news is that many quality veteran players will be released by Teams who are in bad shape Salary Cap wise (Steelers,Panthers,Jets,Saints,Raiders & GIants) who have already announced some releases like some of these players

Steelers Hines Ward, James Farrior, Aaron SMith
Giants – Brandon Jacobs, and possible OT R McKenzie, DE O Yumenyuri
Colts – TE D Clark, LB G Brackett, RB J Addai , trying to trade DE D Freeney, Safery M Bullitt.. (Buillitt would be a good expereiced SAfety for Eagles to target)
Panthers – Are reportedly going to release RT J Otah, L BT Davis and possibly LB J Beason and RB D Williams unless they restructure their deals
Saints — Are reportedly going to release DE Will Smith, MLB J Vilma and RB C Ivory

stick to saving animals…you know nothing about the NFL…what a waste of a thread.

The Eagles will sign DT Jason Jones and LB Dan Connor……Jones was a stud under Jim Washburn in Tennessee and is only 25yrs old….Connor is better than any LB on the current roster and was one of the best LB’s against the run per Pro Football Focus…

the first free agency move has to be OL, one started needed since they are slow foot dragging with the Evan Mathis signing
Love the Tyvon Branch move, he is franchised but worth a phone call trade proposal offer with the Raiders who have salary cap problems and no high draft picks plus the birds having an extra 2nd ———–

Thats 5 minutes of my life I’ll never get back. When you write an article and the first 3 paragraphs are about how rightous and how much smarter you are then the rest of us eagles fans, the least you can do is get your shit straight. Half the dudes you mentioned are already signed or franchised. Where did you get your info on Mathis? That must be some top secret shit that only a top notch reporter such as yourself can obtain. Great article look forward to your next one. I just took a second look at your article thinking I may have been to hard on you and to my suprise it still blows.

@E0SB….the birds are not dragging their feet with Mathis….they are prevented from negotiating with him prior to the start of free agency because he was signed to a 1-year league minimum contract last year. I can be as critical as the next fan regarding the FO, but as much as many of us want Mathis signed yesterday, it can’t be done yet.

So the Redskins just gave up the universe to draft a guy that no one had heard of before this year. Go Skins! Perhaps this will work out….guy seems to be well spoken.. Good numbers. But always afraid of guys who come out of nowhere.

That opening was a joke right? Don’t like the Eagles? Don’t bleed green? Am an Animal lover?

Hell dude after that mess I could barely focus on your article points. Hell GCobb why not just go recruit so damn Cowboy fans to fluff up so articles, throw in a couple Skins fan’s articles (After they review that arse crunching we gave em a couple seasons ago) how bout that.

Here is my opening for a n artical on the Cowboys site later this week………

I must be honest, I am not a Cowboys fan unlike most on this site or in Dallas I don’t bleed silver or embrace the shining Star……………………………………..!!!!!!!!

If you had left out your animal loving moralizing we might have gotten a decent football treat from your artical. Guys know i don’t directly bash someone when I come on here but that there deserves honorable consideration.

Thats two Gcobb, one more and we are revoking your Eagle Card. LOL 🙂

That’s time in my life that I lost, that I could have spent taking a dump. Instead of wasting us Eagles fans time, go do some actual, realistic reserch, or stick with what you do best, save animals & defend your disgraced, child molesting, enabling, alma mater PSU. How do can you embarrass yourself, by saying you don’t like the Eagles, & write an article on them, on one of their blog sites. You make it quite obvious why with your dislike for them & saving animals comments. (Vick). I don’t like him either, but don’t hide your true reason for the article, with your bogus so called research of FA. Come on dude, it’s obvious that you love animals (as I do) & hate the Birds because Vick is a proven dog killer & you clearly did minimal research, & know very little about what’s going on. HAVE THE BEAN BAG NOT TO HIDE BEHIND A WRITTEN ABORTION!

Eagles should seriously look at bringing in Safety Melvin Bullitt and possibly even MLB Gary Brackett who were both released by the Colts..
Bullitt could step in ans Start and be that Strong Safety that plays in the box and can protect the middle of the field that they have been lacking..
MLB Brackett could be a solid Veteran and man the Middle until a Draft Pick is groomed.. If Eagles Draft Kuechly, then no need for Brackett, if they pass on keuchley and draft one laterin the middle rounds (Mychael Kendricks/Jerry Franklin) Then Brackett may not be a bad pick-up considering that Chaney recovery may take longer due tohis neck injury/surgery

As we all know, the Eagles could use a LB, backup RB, Safety, The Colts just released 3 quality players at the positions that would be a perfect fit for us, Addai at RB, Brackett at LB, and Bullitt at Safety, it looks like that New GM that came from the Eagles is doing for us what Ed Wade did for the Phillies LOL

Charles, I gotta agree with the rest of the posters on here. We’ve already hashed out the Vick dog fighting issue enough. If you hate him because of that, I don’t blame you one bit; but this is just not the right forum for it anymore and certainly not a way to intro into a terrible article filled with inaccurate information. I thought it was a bit insulting to the group who all follow the NFL very closely.

I may not post near as much as the rest of you guys on here, but I check this website at least four or five times a day. However I am going to start checking this site less and less with each animal reference to Vick. If you don’t like the Eagles anymore, fine. Stop writing about them so the rest of us that are here for Garry’s articles don’t have to listen to you complain. We get it. You don’t like what he did. Well, guess what, Vick did his time.

I take it your a vegetarian. If not, your a serious hypocrite. I don’t condone nor like what Vick did, but unless you protest greyhound racing (thousands of puppies culled and dogs killed each year), and hunting, (putting on warpaint and shooting large mammals with bow and arrows that oftentimes maim but don’t kill), and don’t eat mass produced chicken, veal etc, your “F.O.S”.

I dont believe that the eagles will enter the season with the wrs the way there curently constructed, they need another 1 or 2 big receivers for Vick. Drew Brees and Vick are the same height yet we see how the saints surrounded him with bigger wrs big targets.. thats what Vick needs.. he alao needs to get the ball out faster and that comes from reading the coverages faster and getting that ball out of his hands.. i say try to sign Marques Colston who is younger than both RMoss and PBurress.. Vincent Jackson looks to be targeted by the redskins so he may be going there for RG3.. so id bring Colston to town and have a awesome tough to defend offense.. they cant just sit back and keep things the way they are they have to keep upgrading and up with the rest of the league.. there is nothing wrong with having alot of options at the same position.. so tis is my order of wrs to bring in as big targets for Vick:

1. V.Jackson
2.M.Colston
3.P.Burress( Ive been saying to bring him to town for a yr now)
4.R.Moss(Heard that at the saints workout he ran a 4.39 and a 4.40. Thats sick, hes 35 yrs old)

More NFL Veterans got their releases today

Vikings released Starters LG Steve Hutchinson, RG A Herrera and CB Cedric Griffin saving approx $13 from the Vikings Salary Cap
Falcons sign MLB Lofa Tatupu to a 2 Year $5.5 Million Deal meaning they have given up on being able to resign Curtis Lofton who becomes a Free-Agent on TuesdayRainders release Safety Hiram Eugene and told DT J Henderson and OLB K WImbley to either accept re-worked contracts or that they will be released too..

DT Jason Jones would give the Eagles the best front 4 in terms of getting to the QB in the NFL….Cole, Babin, Jenkins and Jones would cause havoc on offenses in a psssing league

DO NOT sign Curtis Lofton – he is NOT the answer….the guy is terrible in coverage and Pro Football Focus ranked him as one of the worst LBS against the run giving up 7 TDS up the middle last season

jott1972

March 11, 2012 11:11 am

Then with their 1st round pick, the Eagles need to take a defensive playmaker…. look at LB/DE Courtney Upshaw and CB Dre Kirkpatrick of Alabama….both can step in day one and contribute….. then in round 2, LB Lavonte David, my fav player in the draft who I think is going to be the best LB from this draft 3 years from now….he has put on more weight and reminds me of Jon Vilma….he is a 3-down LB who makes plays and is a leader on the field. This is a passing league so your LBs better be able to cover. With the other 2nd round pick, WR Chris Givens of Wake Forest… he is a Greg Jennings clone and would give the Eagles plan B if Desean walks next year.

March 11, 2012 1:55 pm

CB Dre Kirkpartick is intriguing, he’s 6-2 190lbs, who could easily put on 10lbs, and is a very physical player.. Many Scouts believe he could transition the Safety Position and would probably make a a better Safety then CB in the NFL since he lacks elite speed.. Word is the Cowboys are very high on him and need help at CB & Safety and will probably select him with the #14 Pick
Cortney Upshaw has been dropping of late after his disappointing Indy Combine and did not perform at Alabama’s Pro Day last week which has raised some more doubts about his conditioning and work ethic..He says he will work out in late March when Trent Richardson and Mark Barron are slated for their workout days due to their injuries… Let’s see if Upshaw keeps his word..but many believe that Upshaw would be better suited for a 3-4 Scheme Defense

Eaglehaslanded

March 11, 2012 3:12 pm

To much emphasis placed on the combine and pro days, 40 yard dashes etc.. The game tape and the interviews is where the majority of weight should be placed. If a person comes in grotesquely out of shape then that’s aredflag, but to analyse every little milk n cranny may do more harm than good. Look at Mamula (old example I know) and all the other combine warriorswho didn’t live up to their hype. Ray Lewis had a slow 40 time !!! How many probowls has he been to. I’d take Hightower or Upshaw over Kuechly, who by the way was coached in combine drills to improve his performance. The tape and level of competition should be the true indicators of ability fllowed up by the interviews. Combines may demonstrate potential, not abilty on the field against high level competition.

Eaglehaslanded– I totally agree, guys are putting way too much stock in combine numbers.. thats what has happen to the eagles with new GM roseman.

March 11, 2012 8:36 pm

I agree that you can’t make too much of the Metrics, and Combine #’s for what they are.. but what you really don’t want to see is a Player who comes in out of shape, poor condition and then doesn’t interview to test well or has a poor atttitude… Then you take that player off your board.. If some players can’t take this part of the evaluation process seriously, I don’t want them on my team..

I do think the Eagles will be involved in 1 or 2 trades to try to secure more pickes in the 2nd/3rd Rounds where the best Value is in this Draft and would not be surrpised at all to see them trade Down from the #15 Selection to later in the 1st Round and perhaps pick-up an extra 2nd or 3rd Rounder in the process..

Randy Moss is reported to be heading out to San Francisco for a WOrkout for Monday… He could help that team out tremendously if he’s serious about playing football again..

LOL this comment section was an epic ass kicking..Like rostadoc said above if you eat meat what can you really say about Vicks actions…I hate what he did but im not at the place to antagonize Vick for his actions since I eat meat almost every day of my life. I would be a hypocrite if I did so Charles if you feel that way then thats fine. My guess is that you haven’t had a nice porterhouse steak or burger since Vick went to jail tho.

I would never stop rooting for this team tho based. on that. Im an Eagles fan merely due to the football aspect of it not off what these guys do in their personal life.

But yea your article was maybe the worst ever…At least don’t start off by saying something absurd like I did serious research on this blah blah blah and then write crap like this.

EHL i agree about the combine…I’ll say it again the 1st round pick for the EAgles should be MArk BArron period. was the best safety all year on the best defense in the entire country coached by a pro ready coach like Saban..Guy is physical and has all the tools. would be an excellent compliment to Nate Allen. Further we would finally sure up the safety position (hoping Allen gets better with a talent next to him) that has been haunting us for years…

Just bringing up names like JR Reed, Considine, Sean Jones, MArlin Jackson, Quintin Demps, Macho HArris and CJ Gaddis should make all you people cringe…stop the merry go-round disaster at Safety and fix it once in for all Reid.

Charlie…you profess not to love the Eagles which is fine. You should also have stated that you know nothiong about football. First, safety. Um Laron Landry is steady hurt. And Tyvon Branch is franchised so to say sign him makes you an idiot. Try to figure out your asshole from your shoe sole before you write such a useless and disappointing article that I was hoping would be interesting.
Mario Williams, further moronic banter. Wow do you even know anything about football. First he’s a DE not a LB. Second, Houston has no interest in signing him.
Mathis already re-signed with Indy and is a horrible idea anyway since he weighs about 245. Did you do any research??
You suck Dude. Terrible article. Go pet your dogs. And do some research next time before you write this load of horseshit. This article was beyond useless.

Im giving up whatever we need to get a guy who can snag a pick with the tape club on his hand.He is franchised so dunno if we could swing it,Howie and the boys might not want a special player to man the back end. They may feel really good about a guy who has yet to lay wood on a tailback in 3 years and a “hardworker” from OSU.

Mathis,Plax,Lofton….Tolbert would be a huge addition and he would replace what we lost in Leanord Weaver, however several teams are gonna be chasing him.I think the Chargers bring em back.

Only problem with Moss to Sanfran is Alex Smith is the qb…not buying him yet…the receivers didnt make any catchs in the title game…but thats on the q as well.

Ok with second tier guys huh? How does that get us closer to the Giants? It doesnt.They got released cause they’re backups or just solid players. We have those players already.

March 12, 2012 12:23 pm

I as ready for FA like the rest of you guys but I agree with Paulman here, I don’t see the Eagles making many big splashes…I would take an A draft on defense over any free agent signing. Give me 2 stud young hungry players on defense like a BArron and Brandon Thompon and I’ll bee more than happy with that.

Erock, Im with you on Tolbert. would be awesome here. perfect compliment to Shady who could easily handle the load if needed. The backup RB spot needs to be solved…its essential to have one in this league. I would be all for them getting Gary Bracket here as well. Not as the solving the complete puzzle at linebacker but just as part of the solution. I can see it too since he would be affordable…I just think there is no way in hell Reid spends big on Tulloch. Has shown he doesn’t care enough about linebackers to pay for the best in FA.

The eagles are not going to draft Safety in the first round. However, I would not be surprised to see them take a fly on Dre Kirkpatrick, and convert him to a safety. I think Mark Barron, is over hyped, and unfortunately will be a bust. I like him but, there are a lot of players like him already grounded in the NFL, it just so happens that he is the latest/ greatest prospect.

Paulman, who is the fullback the Eagles wanted from San Diego last year?
He will probably be brought in. I would like to see them draft Dorell Scott, from South Florida, he’s a big 6-2 244, fast RB, that can be converted into a FB, with 4.48 speed, that can really block, or Jeremiah Trotter’s nephew, Terrance Gannaway, from Baylor, 6-1 247, at fullback.

I do like Lofton, but I can’t disagree that he is somewhat of a liability. I would like to bring in London Fletcher, and draft the future MLB, that can learn behind him for a year, or so.

With all those extra round picks the RAms have, it would be smart of them to use them to get proven guys on the NFL level like a DJAx or Mike Wallace over a college player that has not played an NFL game yet…They got a gift in that trade and it only cost them moving down 4 freakin spots in the draft. If their not a playoff caliber team and atleast a top 5 team in the NFC after 3 years then Fisher and that ownership should be fired on the spot.
