Don’t give up on the Philadelphia Eagles being active in free agency yet.
Maybe Philadelphia Eagles vice president and general manager Howie Roseman has a procrastination problem. We’ve all been through it. We hate to do homework when it’s due. We just get it in at the deadline. Tasks at work find their way to the backburner. We won’t even get into those honey-do lists your spouse has you working on at the house.
Howie’s got two major jobs, draft well and manage the salary cap. He’s been heavily criticized for his track record in the former, and it’s that possible procrastination issue that was mentioned earlier has done him a disservice in the latter.
There’s no need to get into how far the Birds are over the cap for 2021. That’s been discussed enough. So has the fact that its number will shrink next year. Somehow, Howie always gets Philly under the appropriate number, even if he does it in the 11th hour. It would just be nice if he did it earlier so the Birds could go after guys during the regular season if need be.
Don’t give up on Philadelphia being aggressive in free agency just yet. It’s going to take some doing, but it can happen. The salary cap will work itself out. Depending on how it’s managed, Philly could make a move or two. Here are five guys they should consider if they can.
