The Linc - Eagles will need to spend in free agency

Eagles Free Agency Preview: Salary Floor Could Prompt Spending
2013 marks the return of the salary cap floor, which had been abolished since pre-lockout rules took effect in ‘10. The floor will be roughly 89% of the $123 million limit for this season, so about $109 million. Current projections have Philadelphia around $90, and Asomugha’s release would reduce that total below $80 – all the more reason the team may opt to renegotiate.

They could look for cornerback help here, too, with guys like Shaun Smith, Cary Williams or Greg Toler expected to hit the market.

If you strictly think of Jordan as a pass rusher, then drafting him doesn’t make as much sense. You’ve already got Cole, Graham, and Curry in place. You have to think of Jordan as a chess piece that can be moved around. You also have to think that the front seven needs guys like him to chase down RGIII for the next decade, not to mention Wilson, Kaepernick, and the other mobile QBs of the NFC.
