Eagles keep the signings coming with Chung, Phillips

AP

The Eagles might not catch the Dolphins today in terms of dollars spent, but they are signing in bulk.

The team announced the signing of former Patriots safety Patrick Chung, reuniting him with his college coach from Oregon, new Eagles boss Chip Kelly.

They also added Jason Phillips, according to agent Jordan Woy. Phillips played for the Panthers last year, and gives them another player with experience in a 3-4.

  1. AND hes a camerman? Oh thats awesome. thats how Bellichick did it huh? Oh these moves…I cant even rest. Chip clearly has a plan in place. 3-4 domination baby!

  2. I don’t like the eagals and hope chip kelly falls on his face, buth signing several average/above average players to low dollar contracts is a good stategy. 0 bust potential because your not spending much while building a deep team.

    Not spending much while building a good team is what the draft is for. Who is the last team that won a Super Bowl because of the quantity of free agents they brought in?

  4. A lot of people where high on Chung, myself included. I enjoyed his play early in his career, but injuries had him miss to many games to progress into a good Run stopping safety. I dislike the Eagles, but hopefully he stays healthy this year. He won’t be missed on the Patriots, lets sign someone that can play the position.

  5. Love the signings. Considering tearing down my Andy Reid statue and constructing one for Howie after reading how he came up on Saturday morning one-liners. Great story by Delco times… Go birds!! Lets go win our 4th championship 🙂

  7. Pats took the wrong safety from Oregon high in the 2nd rnd. Then they drafted DButler and RBrace before Buffalo drafted Byrd 8 picks later. Talk about a whiff.

    2001 Patriots like phoff12 said, and the Packers when they made the big Charles Woodson signing (even though they didn’t win the Super Bowl for a few more years), the 49ers and Cowboys with Deion Sanders, the 2004 Patriots signed a couple of key free agents. Also the 2007 Patriots signed a bunch of free agents, they made it to the Super Bowl but didn’t win. The Eagles problem a few years ago was that they stockpiled at just a couple positions (CB, DL) and ignored needs (LB, S, OL).

  9. I was also high on Chung early in his career, but he never progressed. He’s a hard hitter, although misses a lot of tackles. Zero instincts on coverage. Plays the run much better than the pass, making him one-dimensional. Spends a lot of time injured. No wonder the guy never stood a chance on BB’s defense.

    Filling in your roster with solid contributors and high upside signings is exactly what you want to do as a rebuilding team. The Eagles aren’t winning the Super Bowl this year, so that argument is a moot point.

    Look what Indy did last year – turned over more than half their roster with low-risk signings and got key contributions from a ton of players.

    And I seem to remember Jacoby Jones and Bernard Pollard playing key roles on a certain team that just won the Super Bowl… But hey, I could be mistaken.

    The Patriots have used this formula for years. The Niners did it in signing guys like Carlos Rogers, Ahmad Brooks, Donte Whitner a few years ago.

    The draft is most important, but there’s nothing wrong with a few low-risk, high-reward signings. Particularly guys like Casey and Fletcher, who are versatile and can produce at minimum in stiuational roles, but could be much more given the opportunity.

    By all means I am tired of it also. I was just stating a fact they were coming. BTW, Vince Young I still owe you a punch in the face for the Dream Team Comment.
