NFL free agency kicked off with a bang this week and the Philadelphia Eagles were among the teams making some big moves. John Stolnis and I got together to talk about the Eagles news in this week’s BGN Radio episode (CLICK HERE TO LISTEN). Topics include:

GRADING THE EAGLES’ FREE AGENCY MOVES

  • BLG thinks L.J. Fort can hold down the fort for the linebacker corps (boo this man)
  • The DeSean Jackson return is exciting and, really, it’s almost hard to believe he’s really back
  • There’s plenty of reason to like the Malik Jackson signing but there’s also reason to knock it down to a B+
  • Was bringing Jason Peters back the right move?
  • What do you make the Eagles’ decision to keep Nelson Agholor at his $9.4 million guaranteed?

PLAYERS GONE ELSEWHERE

  • Thoughts on Nick Foles officially signing that big contract with the Jaguars
  • The Eagles had a reason for not signing Tevin Coleman — they didn’t fall asleep at the wheel
  • Jordan Hicks, Jordan Matthew, and Golden Tate are gone
  • Jay Ajayi and Ronald Darby have free agent visits scheduled outside of Philly

WHAT’S NEXT?

  • What is the plan at running back? What are the Eagles’ remaining options?
  • Are the Eagles going to invest in a veteran backup quarterback to challenge Nate Sudfeld?
  • Other positions that the Eagles should still address and how they should go about doing that

LONG LIVE DAVE GETTLEMAN

  • The Giants are a disaster and it’s glorious
