The discussions about all of those Philadelphia Eagles free agents are underway.

So, here’s the thing. We all hang out on Twitter a lot, and even though we decide to ignore what people are saying more often than we respond, we all see the comments. Everyone’s talking about the Philadelphia Eagles‘ roster and what they might do to improve it.

Draft conversations are a huge talking point. Mocks are popping up everywhere as you might expect, but before we figure out whether or not Philly’s draft strategy mirrors our own, we’ll arrive at the 2022 NFL Scouting Combine and the free-agency signing period, which is sometimes referred to as the frenzy.

The Eagles have to make decisions on a considerable portion of their roster. Some of their impending free agents are popular among the media, the fan base, and the locker room. Many played huge roles in last season’s success. Nine of them started at least one game. There’s a lot to talk about even though that’s all that we can do at this point… talk.

The job here is a simple one, determine what the best course of action is for each of the Eagles’ impending free agents. Who stays? Who goes? We begin with the easy decisions before working our way towards the tougher ones. Expect the opinions on some of these guys to change between now and mid-March.
