Does anyone understand what Howie Roseman means by this “no band-aid” theory?
On Tuesday, the Philadelphia Eagles dove headfirst into the NFL Free Agency pool again. Heads were turned, and everyone logged into their social media accounts to discuss the signing of two guys none of us were thinking about. Truthfully, if you woke up on Monday and you knew defensive end Chris Long and cornerback Patrick Robinson would be Eagles by midweek, then you really need to audition for one of those psychic hotlines.
The rest of us are trying to figure out things we’ve been hearing and thinking about for weeks. Eagles executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman has tried to tell us this team is building for the sustainable future. Then, an aging vet was added at wide receiver (Torrey Smith). Two one-year contracts were handed out at two positions we all know the Eagles have dire need for long-term answers, wide receiver (Alshon Jeffery) and cornerback (Robinson).
We’ll be honest with you. It’s difficult to understand what this team is doing. Still, we’ve done our research, listened to what the Eagles brass is saying and we’ve come up with five things we’ve learned from the addition of the two newest Eagles.
There’s no time like the present. Let’s begin.
