Britt is the definition of a “band aid signing”.
During Roseman’s most recent press conference, he discussed learning from previous mistakes in roster building. He used the term “band aid signings” to describe using quick fixes to rush a team’s development.
Roseman pointed at the corner back position where both he and/or former head coach and general manager Chip Kelly threw big money at unproven players such as Nnamdi Asomugha and Byron Maxwell. They also signed cheap and mediocre veterans like Bradley Fletcher and Leodis McKelvin and forced them prematurely into starting spots.
The Eagles can’t make the same mistakes at wide receiver while building a young team.
It’s clear the Eagles won’t be competing for a Super Bowl in 2017. Adding a 28 year old receiver that, most likely, won’t be in Philadelphia when Wentz and the team are ready to seriously compete, doesn’t really add up.
