One season of being known as the Dream Team was more than enough for the Eagles.
With free agency starting in four hours, Philadelphia isn’t planning a repeat performance of 2011, when the Eagles made the biggest splash of any NFL team. CSNPhilly.com reports that the Eagles will be selective shoppers and won’t bid for the big names like Mario Williams and Carl Nicks. Don’t expect many, if any, of the players on PFT’s Hot 100 Free Agent list to land in Philadelphia.
Checking in at No. 100 on that list is the man who bestowed the Dream Team nickname on the Eagles, Vince Young, who will walk away as a free agent. The Eagles are content with Michael Vick as the starter and Mike Kafka as the backup at quarterback.
And at other positions (including wide receiver, where DeSean Jackson has the franchise tag, and offensive line, where Todd Herremans has been extended), the Eagles are also content with keeping the players they have and upgrading in depth and in the draft, not upgrading with household names. The Eagles want to build a complete team, not a star-laden Dream Team.
