FREE AGENCY: SAFETIES.

Posted February 28, 2013

THE word at NFL.com is that Jarius Byrd won't be leaving Buffalo.

Next on the list is Dashon Goldson who doesn't want to be franchised again after being franchised last year and making 6.2 million. If he we're franchised again this year he'd make the which ever is greater between the average of the top 5 salaries at his position (I'm not bothering to look that up) or 120% of what he made last year, which would be 7.44 million. He apparently want's more per year than 7.44 million. So the Eagles could be looking at a new FA Safety who makes more than their starting QB. That starts off with things out of whack.

ONTO WILLIAM MOORE! Word is that the Falcons won't use their tag on him, and that only makes sense if they intend to lock him up long-term. Otherwise the guy has been too big a part of their defense for them to NOT tag.

Ed Reed is a FA. However coming off a Super Bowl and starting every game for the last 2 years, as long as he doesn't try to sabotage himself and his legacy, he should be back in Baltimore.

Would Glover Quin consider leaving a team with playoffs all but assured for a team that has been in a downward spiral for the last 3 seasons? If there's a big gap in the money, sure. But we've seen more than a few examples of players who took less to have a shot at not losing all the time.

Charles Woodson? Kenny Phillips? Louis Delmas? LaRon Landry? Chris Clemons? 

If the Eagles are going to get help at Safety in Free Agency, they are going to have to really shell out for it. All indications is that they'll have to bid on the services of anybody good with the players old teams and if the numbers are close, I can't see the player making the jump.

If you're banking on getting real help here, you may be very disappointed.
