Since the start of free agency, the Eagles have added nine new players, but only one true pass-rusher – Connor Barwin.
Much of the offseason focus has been on rebuilding the secondary, but Howie Roseman, Chip Kelly and company still have work to do in bolstering the front seven – specifically, the defensive line.
Before we take a look at what areas still need to be addressed, let’s look at what the Eagles have on their current roster.
Nose tackle Isaac Sopoaga opened some eyes at the introductory press conference for he and tight end James Casey Wednesday. After politely thanking the Eagles, God and the city of Philadelphia, he amped things up.
“We are here to hunt. We are here to win. I promise that we’re going to shock the world,” said the 6-2, 330-pound veteran.
The Eagles did not go with a lot of household names for their first wave of free agent signings. Time to study up.
To get a little bit better of an understanding of what tight end James Casey, nose tackle Isaac Sopoaga, cornerback Bradley Fletcher, safetyPatrick Chung and linebacker Jason Phillips bring to the table, we rounded up some analysis of the players and reaction to the signings.
