NFL free agency is almost here! The Eagles have already gotten a jump on things with some contract extensions. Philadelphia is also already involved in trade rumors as well. 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:

IT’S HOWIE SZN

  • Thoughts on new contracts for Brandon Graham, Jason Kelce, and Isaac Seumalo
  • BLG defends BLG (shocker!)
  • Looking at how much cap space the Eagles have now and what they can still free up
  • What could the Eagles be looking to do with the money they’re freeing up?

MICHAEL BENNETT’S FUTURE

  • Why would the Eagles be considering trading him?
  • It seems like it’s more complicated than people on the outside realize

WON’T BE RUNNING OUT OF RB OPTIONS

  • The Eagles have a lot of directions they can go in at running back
  • Should the Eagles trade for Duke Johnson? How about Jordan Howard? Both? Neither?
  • Which free agent running back do you want the Eagles to sign?
  • Is Le’Veon Bell a realistic possibility?

WHAT HAPPENS WITH NELSON AGHOLOR?

  • What’s the most likely outcome when it comes to Nelly? Trade? Cut? Contract extension?
  • What do the Eagles do at wide receiver if Agholor isn’t back?

NO CARSON WENTZ EXTENSION COMING THIS YEAR?

  • Should the Eagles be in a rush to re-sign Wentz?
  • What’s going on with the Nate Sudfeld situation? Who do you want backing up Wentz in 2019?
  • Making the case for Ryan Fitzpatrick and another veteran backup

BAD WEEK FOR THE EAGLES’ RIVALS

  • It wasn’t a good week for the Cowboys, Giants, and Washington
  • The Eagles have the smartest front office in the division

NO NICK FOLES MARKET?

  • It really seems like it’s Jaguars or bust for Foles
  • What happens if Jacksonville doesn’t give him the money he wants? Is that the point where he might just retire?
