According to Eric Edholm of Pro Football Weekly, the Eagles have their free agent moves planned “down to the minute.” Philly is geared up to deal no only with the expected frenzy that will come with a new CBA deal but the odd timing of it. July — often a time for NFL folks’ vacations in normal years before training camps hit at the end of the month — promises to be one of the wackiest months in recent NFL history if the lockout ends in due time.
Like his fellow GMs around the NFL, Howie Roseman knows the laundry list of things that will have to be accomplished in a short time: unrestricted free-agent signings, trades, draft-pick signings and undrafted free-agent signings, not to mention any trades (Kevin Kolb, anyone?) or long-term extensions clubs choose to work out with their players. We hear the Eagles have their plan in place, down to the minute, of how they will attack the opening hours of free agency — if and when it occurs.
