While there's no doubt that the acquisition of Nnamdi Asomugha will overshadow pretty much everything the Eagles and most other teams do this offseason... there is other business to be done. In addition to Nnamdi, the Eagles also officially announced that they've agreed to a one year deal with QB Vince Young. We took a more in depth look at Young and what his possible impact could be yesterday when the news broke that the two sides had agreed in principle.

Also, while announcing the Nnamdi deal, the Eagles GM Howie Roseman also revealed that they agreed to terms with TE Donald Lee of the Packers and WR/KR Johnnie Lee Higgins, formerly of the Raiders.

Higgins only caught 10 passes last year, but he does have a lot of experience as punt and kick returner. In 2008, Higgins returned three punts for TDs and averaged 13 yards per return. He's likely here to compete for a roster spot on special teams.

Lee is a big 6-4, 248 pound blocking TE who has spent the last six seasons with the Packers. He actually caught 11 TDs between 2007 and 2008 when injuries to Bubba Franks gave him a chance to play more. Since then however, he's been mostly kept to blocking duty. It's a low key signing, but one that certainly fills a role that the Eagles have lacked in recent seasons. Maybe now they can stop asking Celek to block so much and have him focus on things he's actually good at...
