- Eagles will hire Gus Bradley as their new headcoach;
I have a feeling Bruce Arians winds up in SD, Mike McCoy in Chicago, Todd Haley or Jay Gruden in Arizona and Brain Schottenheimer in Jacksonville. That leaves us with Brian Kelly, Lovie Smith, Mike Nolan, Keith Armstrong and Gus Bradley as the last men standing. The latter has the most upside.
Free agent aquisitions;
- Glenn Dorsey, DT, KC Chiefs
- Jarius Byrd, S, Buffalo Bills
- Branden Albert, OT, KC Chiefs
If Byrd is franchised Dashon Goldson might become an Eagle. Gus Bradley could even make a trade with his former team for safety Kam Chancellor. Adam Levitre might get franchised by the Bills and that would make Jarius Byrd a FA. Branden Albert becomming a FA is an indication Andy Reid will go for Luke Joeckel in the draft. They pick him up cheap, simply because they already know they don't have a shot drafting Joeckel!
- Nnamdi Asomugha will settle for a new contract around 6,5 mln a year and moves to safety (hybride).
- Cullen Jenkins;
- Jason Peters (10 mln a year is a lot for a player who’s been out for a whole year, right?).
Mike Vick, Demetress Bell, Kurt Coleman, Dion Lewis, Mike Patterson, Derek Landri, Danny Watkins.
Some of these player might get traded, some certainly will be cut.
- Akeem Jordan.
- Jeremy Maclin for Rams 3th rounder;
- Eagles trade picks/players for Seahawks QB Matt Flynn (4th rounder).
First 4 rounds of the draft
On the first day of the draft Andy Reid and the KC Chiefs select Luke Joeckel first overall! As a result the Eagles trade out of their 4th spot (to Arizona, NY Jets or SD) and reveive an extra second in return.
With the first pick in the draft the Eagles select; Chance Warmack, Guard, Alabama
Simply BPA with the 7th, 9th or 11th pick in the draft.
** Eagles trade back into the bottom of the second round using one of their second rouders and a 5th **
With the ?? pick in the draft the Eagles select; Xavier Rhodes, CB, Florida State
Gus Bradley wants at least one physical presence at CB and the Eagles trade back into the backend of the first round to select one of the most physical of them all...
