Our 2023 NFL free agency tracker is officially here! We’ll be keeping tabs on all the rumors, reports, trades, news, signings, etc. that are relevant to the Philadelphia Eagles over the next few weeks in this space here at Bleeding Green Nation.
The action unofficially kicks off at noon on Monday, March 13 at 12:00 PM Eastern when the ‘legal tampering’ period begins. Teams and agents can begin negotiating contracts but they can not formally finalize any deals until the new league year officially starts on Wednesday, March 15 at 4:00 PM Eastern.
This year’s free agency period should be quite eventful for the Birds since they have a number of notable players set to hit the open market. Who will they lose and who will they be able to keep?

[11:29 AM ET] - To kick off us, a recap of the latest buzz: the Eagles are making a “strong effort” to re-sign CJGJ but it seems like he could be headed elsewhere given his goodbye message ... James Bradberry is giving the Eagles a chance to match offers ... Javon Hargrave could make as much as $22 million, likely pricing him out of Philly’s range ... Fletcher Cox is likely headed out the door ... Darius Slay’s agent was given permission to seek a trade as the veteran cornerback and the Eagles try to figure out reasonable terms on a possible extension ... T.J. Edwards’ market could be more robust than expected.
