ESPN put together their team of the best value players in the NFL. Basically the guys who are producing at a level far beyond what they're being paid. The Eagles got one guy on the list and it should come no surprise who it is... LeSean McCoy.

Philly got 1,309 rushing yards, 315 receiving yards and 20 touchdowns (more than the St. Louis Rams as a team) out of McCoy, whose $822K cap number was less than a quarter of Vince Young's. Shady indeed. Between McCoy and DeSean Jackson, Philly has big decisions on the horizon.

DeSean Jackson was also a good value at $600K this year, but not nearly as much as Victor Cruz ($405K) or Mike Wallace ($663K) were.
