Well, the Denver Broncos got better today. Not only have they found their quarterback, to the dismay of some Philadelphia Eagles fans. There’s also theory, though most of it speculation, that another player on Philly’s offseason wish list might join him in the Mile-High City, his former teammate Bobby Wagner.
Now, buckle up because that isn’t even the best part. According to a report from NFL Network’s Mike Garafalo, the Dallas Cowboys had to delete those tweets they posted on the first day of the legal tampering period stating they had come to terms with Randy Gregory. He’s going to the Broncos now too.
That’s bad for Dallas and good news for the Birds.
Bad news for the Cowboys is always good news for the Eagles.
Heading into the new league year, everyone’s trying to get better, but teams are also looking at what their rivals are doing too. If your biggest roadblock in the division adds a speed rusher, you may want to evaluate your offensive tackles. If they add a phenomenal wide receiver, you had better make sure your cornerback room is up to snuff.
The Broncos, being in the same division as Patrick Mahomes, Justin Herbert, and Derek Carr, needed to shore up their pass rush. Gregory will help them with that. Dallas conversely loses a pass rusher. That’s good news for the Eagles. That’s good news for their young quarterback Jalen Hurts.
The Eagles agreed to terms with their new EDGE star, Haason Reddick, on March 14th. These deals we see every team making won’t be finalized until after 4 p.m. EST on March 16th, but Reddick seems happy with his new home. There’s no reason to see any U-turns in the negotiation process.
Meanwhile, for the so-called America’s Team, there are some issues. Dak Prescott isn’t as good when he doesn’t have Amari Cooper. The numbers have shown us that, and again, for those of you who tuned in late, Gregory is headed to Denver.
That doesn’t directly impact what the Eagles’ plans are in free agency, but either way you slice it, bad news for the guys in the ugly blue and grey jerseys is always good news for Philadelphia. After all, Dallas hung 95 points on Philly in two games last season.
