Eagles Wake-Up Call: DRC And the Corner Market

Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie signed a one-year deal with Broncos late Wednesday night.

Nobody knows the holes in DRC’s game better than Eagles observers, but many believed there would be some competition for the talented 26-year-old. It never developed, and DRC finds himself on a prove-it contract in Denver.

His signing solidifies the fact that the Eagles will go into 2013 with two new starting corners. They inked former Ram Bradley Fletcher to a two-year deal on the first day of free agency to compete for a job, but the all-important position remains paper thin at the moment.

“Hopefully something picks up and if they [don’t], I will be interested in what other teams would have to say,” Goldson said, adding that he would be open to playing “pretty much anywhere.”

Several stars would have to align for him to end up in Philadelphia.

Eagles Wake-Up Call: FA Options At Defensive Tackle

If there was any doubt that the Eagles  would be addressing defensive tackle this offseason, it was erased when both Mike Patterson and Cullen Jenkins were released Monday.

With Derek Landri poised to become a free agent, the Eagles currently have four interior linemen under contract: Fletcher Cox, Antonio Dixon, Cedric Thornton and Ronnie Cameron. No matter the eventual scheme, they will need to add players to the mix.

Howie Roseman, Chip Kelly and company could look for reinforcements in April’s draft (Florida’s Sharrif Floyd and Utah’s Star Lotulelei could both go early), but also have the opportunity to bolster the position via free agency, which kicks off on March 12.
