    [News] Early Thinking On Some Roster Battles To Watch

    You can’t just collect all top paid free agents No Mas. You need to hit on some lower and mid level free agents also. I’d love to sign Cooper, Ngokoue, Simmons, Chris Jones and Byron Jones. But not realistic. And you can’t compare home grown talent to FA. FA cost more. That’s just the way it is. What I’ve been trying to tell you....is you need more money to get those final pieces of the puzzle in FA.

    No Mas, why does tagging Dak mean they can’t sign Cooper? I figure it means they can’t sign Jones. Cobb is in that equation also.

    Going to need a backup though

    I know everybody wants a WR...and I’ve talked about trading back. But it’s starting to look like LB Murray might be available at 21. I just can’t see passing on him. I know we don’t ever invest in the position. But now could be a perfect time to change that. Not just drafting a stud but also signing a FA. I’m really more focused on defense this offseason. I want to sign a very quality S and draft a guy like Duggar third rounder?) can’t not think about signing Ngakoue from Jax. Stud pass rusher in his prime you have to take a swing at. The DT are lined up in FA. How many get tagged or signed? And I want to sign Jones at CB. Obviously can’t do all of these. But boy our defense would be nasty if we could get close.

    Mardi Gras watch out...here comes stine. Have fun! Be safe.

    Yes Stine has an email thread going. And there, here or anywhere I think it’s important for everybody to voice their opinions. We’re all educated and knowledgeable Eagles fans. Doesn’t mean we have to agree. Sometimes people need a little thicker skin...and sometimes people need to harass less. I believe in disagreeing but trying to be respectful about it. I value differing opinions. But I’m also very opinionated. So sometimes I might come off as a D...don’t mean anything by it. Just giving my two cents.

    I’ve felt we’ve kept Peters several years too long. But he did come through and play solid last season. V is all but gone in FA. Somebody will make him a starter. So we need a backup T. Can’t rely on Mailata alone. So I’m actually flipping and thinking to try and keep Peters one more season. Johnson, Dillard, Peters and Mailata is a good way to go at the position. Good balance of ages and experience. The only issue I have is it’s hard to put Peters on the bench. But I can’t justify stunting Dillard’s growth. He needs to start and play. If we don’t keep Peters then we have to bring in a backup vet. Peters provides great leadership and coaching for Dillard. That’s one of the main reasons I want him back. He knows all these pass rushers playbook. And he obviously knows how to prepare during the week.

    Diggs would be a good trade idea. He’s going to want big money...but he’s probably worth it. Love his speed and agility.

    Yes I’ve wanted to trade for Slay the past two seasons. But now I’m starting to get cold feet. You could make a case his play has been declining. You could also provide outside reasons for his job becoming more difficult. Jones makes more sense to me...but twenty other teams probably think so also.

    Go ahead dallas wait for Bridgewater, Mahomes and Watson to all sign. Franchise Dak. Then let Lamar and the others sign their new contracts also. 30 mil per season is already looking like an old dream for them.

    Was just reading that Teddy Bridgewater could be looking at signing for thirty million per season. Can’t help but laugh at what that does to the Cowboys and their Prescott situation.

    The thing with Jones is we could have him under contract for an extra season if we claim a medical year his first season. So it’d be nice if he worked out. ESPN(I think it was) suggested we trade Jones and a pick for Slay from Detroit. Since Slay is in his final year of his contract. And Detroit always trades away their good players. I wouldn’t have a problem with this trade. And I wouldn’t be surprised if Jones was successful there. But I’m not sure he can be successful here. I wasn’t ever grading him as high as many in his draft anyway. Bringing in Slay...getting to see him in this system...then resigning him to a big contract works for me. Win/win. Let’s do it!

    Wrangler, it just depends on the market. Schwartz is stubborn as he77! If Darby doesn’t find a market he’ll try and get him back. Mills the same. Jones is in that prove it spot. Gotta earn the role and prove durability. I feel like he’s been given plenty of opportunity. I don’t feel bad for him. So many guys are just looking for a shot. Douglas they almost were forced to play out of desperation. He had a few quality moments. But he also got smoked a fair amount. Schwartz just isn’t the best judge of talent. Very quality DC...but personnel just isn’t his area. And he’s stubborn about playing favorites. We’ve seen it play out at corner plenty(go back before any of these guys previously mentioned were even here). We saw it play out with Long at DE. Clearly think Schwartz was the sole problem with bringing back Long. He played at a very high level the year before. Made zero sense not to bring him back. Especially right after the season began with the injuries. But we draft Miller to hold on the 53 instead of Long? How freaking stupid was that? I’ll tell you...moronic!

    And then that gets me to the whole train of thought about how I’d consider trading Jenkins. Really seems like the wise move. Get something for him while he’s still worth something. And I don’t want to pay him or extend him much more. Get me a pick and cap relief by trading Jenkins. Then bring in the younger Simmons, Harris(several FA options).... move Maddox and draft a guy.

    I’ve thought the same with Maddox. He’s a FS. He has the versatility to also man the slot. LeBlanc I’m fairly confident in manning the Nickle role. But occasionally you go Dime where you could use that S to take a slot WR....or a four WR set. S just seems the very available option to get in FA AND the draft. So it looks like we should sign one of these very talented available vets. But also I’m really liking the depth at the position in the draft. A good spot to HIT in the draft. So I’d be fine with getting a very quality vet and drafting one at the position fairly high. Maddox could be a backup/utility player. If he became fourth S/backup Slot CB/ backup outside CB....I’d be ok with that also.
