The Philadelphia Eagles have enjoyed a tremendous offseason, and some of the best moves might be the ones we aren't discussing.

Are you having fun yet? You should be. That statement comes with this story being published during the quietest portion of the Philadelphia Eagles' calendar year.

Philly had the option of using 13 sessions during organized team activities and elected to only use six. The mandatory minicamp was canceled for the second consecutive offseason, so the next time we'll see the Birds will be July 25th. Gosh, that seems like a long time.

As we wait, everyone will spin their wheels predicting what comes next for the defending NFC champions.

It has been an action-packed time since the confetti fell on the wrong team to close Super Bowl LVII. Philly lost starters from last year's roster but made the most of their opportunities in free agency and the most recent NFL Draft before adding an impressive undrafted rookie free-agent class.

While they'll need to prove their mettle when games begin counting towards the win-loss total, the Eagles seemingly made the correct coaching hires by promoting Brian Johnson (offensive coordinator) and adding Sean Desai (defensive coordinator) and D.J. Eliot (linebackers coach).

No one has to be reminded of how impactful it was to add Jalen Carter and Nolan Smith in Round 1. No one needs to be educated on the wisdom the retained veterans will provide. The Eagles made some key underrated signings as well. Here are a few that come to mind.
