Absolutley true! Very few free agents come in and make a real difference. Hutchison for the Vikings is an exception, but even that doesn't make you qa SB contender. This team needs some pieces to fill out the puzzle not just one piece. We have to remain patient and fill a few holes. Everybody that wants to sign the high profile free agents: just relax..... the front office has a plan.... we're going in the right direction.

Well, with Dansby & L.J. Smith franchised you're down to just 2 choices left.

I like Justin Smith at DE, but would you consider giving up a 4th round pick for RFA Chris Canty? He's just 25 & appears to be over any lingering effects of his leg injury.

At OLB, I'm still interested in Landon Johnson & possibly Demorrio Williams.

At WR, I'd have to make a run at Bryant Johnson.

I understand where you are coming from but everyone said the same thing about Charles Woodson because of his injuries and look at him now. I like Brian kelly I can remember him coming out of USC he was good then and good now I just hope that the injury bug is over. He will come at a discount price as well so I think that he is worth signing to at least a managable 3 year deal and we can still go after another cornerback for a decent price like Drayton Florence.

I still see Trufant as the right choice. I'm undecided if Gay would be an asset. What was the outcome of his arm injury? Is NE willing to lose him and Samuel?

Not worth a separate thread, but ESPN is reporting the Eagles are shopping Lito Shepard around.

GREAT CB when healthy........unfortunately, the latter should be a concern to us, evidently it is for the Eagles.

Quote:
NFL Network is reporting this afternoon that Eagles CB Lito Sheppard has been given permission to seek a trade/are shopping him. So far they seem to be the only source reporting this. If it gets corroborated, I'll be sure to post up a link.

This is an interesting development, but not necessarily a huge surprise. Pretty much anyone you read this offseason has the Eagles in the market for help in the secondary and one of the main reasons always cited is that fact that Lito can never stay healthy. There's no doubt that when he's healthy he's a great playmaker, but lately that hasn't been all that often. In the last 3 years, Lito has played 11,13, & 10 games respectively. Sheppard's cap number next year is $3.45 million and the Eagles would take a $2.9 million hit to trade him.

I must say, I hope this a sign on the part of the Eagles that injury prone players will simply no longer be tolerated. Injuries have frustrated me more than anything over the past several years and it always seems to be the same guys. Lito is clearly one of them. In fact, my favorite thing about the drafting of Kevin Kolb was that the guy started 4 years in college and never missed a game.

There's also been some talk, namely from Sal Palantonio, that the Eagles could be in the market for free agent CB Asante Samuel.
