There are many things the Eagles need to accomplish during this years offseason.
First off, Eagles need to get rid of 30-year-old defensive end, Connor Barwin. This will free the Eagles cap room a lot. According to Steven Cook from Bleacherreport.com, this will free about $8 million in cap room. They could sign a couple new players they need using that.
Second of all, the Eagles desperately need cornerbacks. Lucky for them, the draft will provide a variety of cornerbacks. This could improve the Eagles defense a lot. There are also cornerbacks that are in free-agency such as, 27-year-old Malcolm Butler, 26-year-old A.J. Bouye, 27-year-old Trumaine Johnson, 26-year-old Logan Ryan, and more.
Third of all, the Eagles desperately need receivers. The receivers could come from the draft, or free-agency. The draft provides wideouts such as John Ross, whom is a star from the 40-yard-dash at the NFL Combine. Ross got a 4.22 40-yard-dash. There also receivers from the draft such as, Mike Williams, Corey Davis, Curtis Samuel, JuJu Smith-Schuster, Zay Jones, ArDarius Stewart, Malachi Dupre, and many more. Free-agency provides receivers such as, 27-year-old Alshon Jeffery, 27-year-old Terrelle Pryor, 30-year-old Pierre Garcon, 30-year-old DeSean Jackson, 26-year-old Adam Thielen, 31-year-old Brandon Marshall, and more.
Fourth, Eagles really need a Running Back. There are running back’s from the draft. As well as free-agency, such as, 25-year-old Le’Veon Bell, 31-year-old Adrian Peterson, 24-year-old Isaiah Crowell, 26-year-old Eddie Lacy, 26-year-old Chris Thompson, 27-year-old Latavius Murray, 30-year-old Jamal Charles, and 32-year-old Danny Woodhead, as well as more.
Fifth, Eagles need to trade 26-year-old, linebacker Mychal Kendricks. This could free up about $7 million in cap room. Meaning we could get another linebacker or two using the money from him. Or even just save it.
Last of all, get rid of 30-year-old quarterback, Chase Daniel. This could free up $7 million in cap room. Meaning we could sign a quarterback or two. Or even trade Chase Daniel.
By doing all of this this could free up about $15 to $25 million in cap room.Follow @EaglesFeast
