Eagles Biggest Need in Free Agency

Posted February 16, 2012

So with all the DJax talk, and other potential free agent MLB's (Stephen Tullock is a good choice and Browns MLB D'Qwell Jackson is our BEST choice IMO).

I think the Eagles #1 priority will be to sign Texans DE/LB Mario Williams if he becomes available.

Even though the Eagles were one of the premier teams sacking the quarterback last year, the Eagles DE's are getting up there in age (Cole is 29 and Babin is 31 as of today) and will need replacements. The Eagles are usually forward thinking in replacing their "older" players with younger ones. So enter Mario Williams. Who at 27 years old and will make the perfect bookend to Brandon Graham (when healthy) and the Eagles will bolster a defensive end situation similar to the New York Giants with Tuck, Osi, and Pierre Paul. 

Speaking of DJax..

While he is a good player and played below his ability last season. I think the Eagles will try to retain him. But if I were running the team, I'd pass on DJax for Vincent Jackson. He's the perfect west coast offense/red zone threat and will remind people when T.O. was in town (minus the media circus and attitude). Free agency is almost here! Can't wait for the combine. :) 

Stay tuned!
