Gentlemen, start your engines.

Word got out last offseason that the Eagles were set to pursue OLB Jason Worilds as a "primary target" in free agency, but he was removed from the market when the Pittsburgh Steelers transition tagged him. Fast forward one year. Worilds was not tagged again and will test unrestricted free agency, and it appears the Eagles remain just as high on the pass rusher, who turned 27 yesterday. From Dianna Marie Russini (@NBCdianna), Sports Anchor for NBC4 in Washington, DC:

Mike Kaye profiled Worilds last month, and during the 2014 preseason ESPN's Adam Caplan tweeted that Worilds "would have signed with the Eagles." With the cap space the Eagles have, you figure they'll be able to quickly land their top targets. Of course, this would seem to signal that Brandon Graham's tenure in Philadelphia is over, but that felt like nothing but a formality at this point anyway.
