Free agency officially begins on March 18th at 4 P.M. EST, but if you’re a Philadelphia Eagles fan, there are already rumors and news to talk about.

First of all, this first statement has nothing to do with the Philadelphia Eagles, but how about those DeAndre Hopkins to the Arizona Cardinals rumors? Wow! Well, that’s the point of this time of year, isn’t it? It isn’t called the Free Agency Frenzy for no reason. This one is a trade that sent Hopkins packing, but it’s still indicative of the unpredictable nature of this time of year.

Now, if you’re a ‘Birds’ fan, your focus shifts back to Philly and what they may or may not do next. Rumors have been swirling for about a month now that the ‘Birds’ intend to go all out to land potential free-agent cornerback Byron Jones, but is he too expensive? Might someone like James Bradberry be a better option? He’ll cost a pretty penny as well. He just won’t be as expensive as Jones will be.

No one can definitively state what the Eagles battle plan is. One thing is certain. With potentially $40 million to spend, they aren’t going to just stand by idly and watch the other 31 NFL teams have all of the fun.

The new league year officially begins at 4 P.M. EST on March 18th, but as you can see, sparks are already flying, Let’s talk a little roster news and discuss a few rumors.

Let’s start with what we know to be accurate.
