Found March 19, 2013 on Football Nation:
The Philadelphia Eagles Front Office has been very busy this off-season.  They have hired a new head coach, found a new Vice President of Player Personnel, and are now on the road to turning over probably at least one-third of the roster.Between all these moves however, how much better has the team gotten, and how much closer to a Super Bowl are they?The unfortunate answer is not very.I recently saw someone give this Front Office an "A+" for the release of Nnamdi Asomugha.  I find this odd because they are currently paying him at least 4 million dollars to not play for them, and on top of that, they could not even get a meager 7th round draft pick from any team in the league in return.  This is not an A+ move by any standard, but more like a desperation move made by a poorly run team that had no other options.If they had kept Nnamdi, even if he had restructured his deal they would have been paying an old 32 year old player at least 7-8 million a year who now struggles with...

Arreliuos Benn, Or Playing Smallball With Big People

Younger, faster, bigger, cheaper In one of those minor moves that can easily fly under the radar because the guy is not now, nor very likely ever to be, fantasy relevant outside of stupidly large deals, the Eagles picked up 24-year-old WR Arrelious Benn from Tampa for the basic equivalent of nothing (moving down 16 spots in the draft in the sixth round). Benn, a washout of a second...

Jeffrey Lurie: Philadelphia will push for Super Bowl if New York goes well

The Super Bowl has traditionally been held in a city with warm weather, or at least been played in a dome when it’s been in a cold city. But that’s about to change next year when the Super Bowl will be played at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey — an outdoor stadium which serves as the home field for the New York Jets and Giants. Philadelphia Eagles owner/chairman Jeffrey Lurie...

Trading Places in 2013 Eagles Draft...

I wanted this piece to be a history of the best tradebacks in Eagles draft lore. Trading back is when you deal an earlier pick to another team for two or more of their later picks...or some other valuable consideration. It seems to me the way to go if you want the most bang for your draft buck.                   ...

NFL Using Video Of Trent Richardson’s Hit On Kurt Coleman As Proposal For New Rule
