In this episode of Kempski's Corner,'s Pat Gallen and Jimmy Kempski break down the top free agents the Eagles should target this offseason.

In free agency, Eagles' best bet at safety is Malcolm Jenkins - Jeff McLane, Inquirer

If he is better and earns playing time, great. If not, cut him.

The N.F.L. Begins to Wake Up -
Last year’s National Football League season was tainted by on-field racial slurs and the bullying of a Miami Dolphins player. Of course, professional football players operate in an emotional, intensely competitive and physically punishing environment. It is obviously not your normal workplace. But, as employees, there is no reason they should be immune from modern standards of workplace conduct.

The 100% real and final guide to NFL Free Agency - PFT Commenter, SB Nation NFL
Chances are if your reading this, your a idiot who doesn't know anything about football players or how to make a good football decision. No offence, its just that most "casual fans" (might as well be a "casual" breather) dont know there butthole from a foxhole much less which players they would want to be in it once the battle starts out there on the gridiron.
