We’ve discussed the Eagles’ offseason additions in great detail, and doing so never gets old.
We’ve criticized vice president/general manager Howie Roseman often (and he’s deserved it). We need to give him credit when he does a great job as he did this past offseason. This Eagles roster looks a lot better than it did back in February.
Games aren’t won on paper, but so far, so good in Philly.
- Haason Reddick – March 14th
- Zach Pascal – March 21st
- Kyzir White – March 26th
- Devon Allen – April 8th
- Keric Wheatfall – May 16th
- Josh Hammond – May 17th
- James Bradberry – May 18th
- Jimmy Moreland – May 23rd
- Jaquiski Tartt – June 17th
- A.J. Brown (via first-round draft-night trade) – April 28th
Worth mentioning: Graded by most as an A-plus offseason now, things got off to a slow start for the Eagles in March. At least that’s what some think. Following the addition of Haason Reddick at the beginning of the free-agency frenzy, most were under the impression that the Eagles weren’t being aggressive enough.
Allowing Derek Barnett to walk only to bring him back days later and following a similar gameplan with Fletcher Cox (released on March 17th, reacquired on March 19th) weren’t the most popular of moves. Neither was holding on to guys like Anthony Harris when it was believed Philly would look elsewhere.
Sure, patience won out, and this turned out to be an exceptional roster overhaul, but there was some concern. Fear not though. Hanging on to Boston Scott was wise, and Zach Pascal and Kyzir White are going to be a lot better than people think. This could be a monstrous year for the Birds.
