The Eagles made plenty of big moves last year, and it appears they’re trying for another one.

According to Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ.com, the two sides have spoken this afternoon, putting Philadelphia in play for one of the big-ticket corners.

Bouye is one of the top names on this year’s market, and will command top dollar. The Eagles have been linked with a number of other big-ticket items, so it’s obviously early.

But they clearly feel like they need to rebuild the secondary, after last year’s tear-down.

  1. Wow, I hope not. The Eagles are not one player away from anything.

    Please build through the draft.


  2. It’s amazing how many GMs that over-rely on and overspend in FA keep their jobs due in part to the “activity” they show this time of year. If you built through the draft and occasionally plug in FA, you’re doing your job. If not, it’s time to go. Unless you’re in the NFCN – then we want you to stick around as GM a long, long time.

  3. Rather sign a receiver and draft corner in what is regarded as a deep draft for corners.

  4. they appear to be using FA to patch up the D , and will use the draft to surround Wentz with offensive skill players .

  5. Those saying they’re buying another dream team are just dumb. They have less then 9 million in cap space. They can free up another 15 million or so by cutting guys like Barwin, Ryan Mathews and Chase Danial. There 2 biggest need positions are corner and wr. Im totally fine if they spend a big chunk to fill a huge need at corner and that frees them up to use there 1st to draft a wr or use it to trade for Cooks. They can get another quality corner in 2nd, a quality rb in the 3rd and then look for a linebacker and o lineman with there 2 4ths. Can also pick up a guy like Robert Woods or Garcon relatively cheap compared to what other wr’s will get to be a possession guy.

  6. Daniel is an 8 million cap hit. If they cut him, they face 7 million in dead money. Unless they find a trade partner, think he’ll be in Philly.
