Some of the Philadelphia Eagles’ free agents are already drawing interest from other teams now that the NFL’s legal tampering window is open. Let’s take a look.
It doesn’t sound like Bradham will be returning to Philly. The Eagles will look for linebacker help elsewhere.
I’m told Nigel Bradham is talking to 8 teams and is hoping to decide where he will play soon— John Clark (@JClarkNBCS) March 17, 2020
I’m told he has not heard anything from Eagles. He was told Eagles are happy with players they have when they released him#Eagles pic.twitter.com/6vebvw9wK4
UPDATE: The Eagles re-signed McLeod to a 2-year, $12 million contract.
NBC Sports Philadelphia’s John Clark reports five teams are interested in signing McLeod. The guess here is that the Eagles have some level of interest in re-signing the veteran safety but he ultimately ends up finding more money elsewhere.
UPDATE: The Miami Dolphins signed Kamu Grugier-Hill.
Clark reports Grugier-Hill is drawing interest from multiple teams. I don’t think the Eagles will be re-signing him because it seems like the bridge between his camp and the team was burned late last season.
UPDATE: The Eagles re-signed Jalen Mills to a 1-year, $5 million contract.
NBC Sports Philadelphia’s Derrick Gunn reports the Detroit Lions “have their eyes on Jalen Mills.” This news makes sense given that the Lions hired former Eagles defensive backs coach Cory Undlin as their defensive coordinator this offseason. With Darius Slay reportedly on the trade block, the Lions find themselves in need of a new starting corner. Mills could be the guy they’re after.
The thinking here is the Eagles would like to bring Mills back since defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz absolutely loves him. But the price has to be right; they’re not going to break the bank just to keep Mills around.
Gunn reports the New York Jets have interest in Curry. Former Eagles vice president of player personnel and current Jets general manager Joe Douglas obviously has familiarity with Curry. The two overlapped in Philly in 2016 and 2017 before the Eagles re-signed Curry last year.
Geoff Mosher reports the Eagles are still interested in retaining Curry, who turns 32 in June.
UPDATE: The Detroit Lions signed Halapoulivaati Vaitai to a 5-year, $50 million contract.
NFL Network previously reported Vaitai is expected to make between $8 million and $12 million on the open market. The Eagles will obviously not be the team to pay him that money since there’s no starting job for him in Philly.
NFL insider Adam Caplan reports the Cleveland Browns are expected to have interest in Vaitai.
The Eagles aren’t really expected to load up on comp picks this offseason because they’ll be making signings of their own. So, that’s something to keep in mind if/when the Eagles lose some of these players.
