The majority of the Eagles' free agents won't be brought back.
A couple players like Ronnie Brown and Vince Young were only signed for one season for a reason, while other like Victor Abiamiri and Juqua Parker have probably been in Philly for too long and will be replaced by younger players in 2012.
Vince Young: $2 million(estimated)
Vince Young has yet to grow as a quarterback during his six-year career.
He has thrown 51 interceptions in 60 career games and has a completion percentage under 58 percent. He is erratic and most of his famous fourth-quarter comebacks are the result of his poor play in the previous three quarters.
He should get a change as a back-up quarterback elsewhere with a chance to overtake a quarterback that hasn't solidified his spot as the team's franchsie quarterback.
Ronnie Brown: $1 million (estimated)
Another swing and miss on those high-touted veterans signed to one-year deals.
Brown had just 136 total yards in 2011 and his attempted pass as he was going down on a running play inside the five-yard line against the 49ers was the difference in a huge loss in Week 4.
He still has value as a No. 2 back in this league.
Owen Schmitt: $600,000 (estimated)
Schmitt has been a nice fullback for the Eagles the past two seasons since Leonard Weaver had that horrific knee injury in Week 1 of 2010. He is an okay lead blocker in the West Coast offense and he is a decent receiver, but not much of a threat in the running game.
Steve Smith: $1 million (estimated)
The third of the one-year wonder free agents from last season.
Smith decided to sign with the Eagles following knee surgery after his former team, the Giants, refused to offer him anything at the time.
He offered the Eagles nothing, as it became evident that his knee was nowhere near 100 percent. He did score a key touchdown against his team late in the first half in a 17-10 Eagles win.
Any team that signs Smith is going to make sure his knee is healthy before signing him, as he was one of the top slot receivers in the game before the injury. He will probably get a one-year offer with a chance to be signed long-term if he is able to stay healthy.
DeSean Jackson: $10 million(estimated)
DeSean Jackson is going to cash in somewhere this season.
Whether he gets the $9.4 million franchise tag from the Eagles or he signs a long-term deal elsewhere, he will make substantially more then his rookie deal paid him.
King Dunlap: $3 million(estimated)
It's difficult to determine how much King Dunlap will make in 2012.
He has the ability to be a starting tackle in this league, while also serving as a very valuable backup who can play both tackle spots and has experience at the guard position as well.
Someone will see Dunlap's ability on film and give him a decent shot at being a starting tackle next season.
Every year, we see former backups get signed to a starter-like contracts.
Players that stand out as a backup in a couple start and then hit the open market usually cash in.

Evan Mathis: $5 million (estimated)
Evan Mathis is going to cash in this offseason.
He thrived in Mudd's blocking scheme and won a starting spot at left guard after he was figured to just be a key backup. He was a perfect fit in Mudd's scheme and while playing next to All-Pro Jason Peters.
Mathis has made over $1 miilion in just one season.
His average salary per year is at a very humble $735,000. He should get a nice long-term deal worthy of his Pro Bowl-caliber play.
Victor Abiamiri: $600,000(estimated)
Victor Abiamiri has been a huge bust for the Eagles during his five seasons in Philly. He has played in just 29 games and has suffered injury after injury.
His rookie contract expired following the 2010 season and he was signed to a measly one-year, $440,000 deal. He will get a shot somewhere in training camp with a very humble contract again.
He has great ability, but the fear with Abiamiri is that he has lost too much speed and can't make an NFL roster anymore. He will get his final shot in 2012 to prove himself not to be a bust.
Juqua Parker: $1.5 million (estimated)
Despite being on the wrong end of 30, Parker has performed well in the past few seasons. He has racked up 15.5 sacks the last three years and can still play at a high level as a backup defensive end.
Now, at the age of 34, he will get less money on the open market than the $4.3 million he made last season. A pass rush is crucial to any defense and he will get plenty of calls as a solid backup.
Derek Landri: $1.3 million (estimated)
Derek Landri was a victim of the final roster cuts in 2011, but found a home in Philly regardless following a season-ending triceps injury to Antonio Dixon. He also found a home in opposing backfields as he thrived as a backup tackle in Jim Washburn's aggressive defensive line scheme.
His play is evident on film and he should get a good offer from several teams running the 4-3 defense.
Trevor Laws: $1.8 million(estimated)
Trevor Laws's value went down just a little bit when the Eagles re-structured Jenkins' contract.
His value went down because like Jenkins, Laws is a versatile defensive tackle that can also line up as an end. If Jenkins had been cut to save cap space, Laws would be almost assured to be back.
Now, Laws is in limbo again and will probably take what he can get, if anything, from the Eagles where his ability fits in well with Coach Washburn.
Antonio Dixon: $1.92 million (second-round tender, estimated)
Antonio Dixon is a valuable run stuffer not yet in his prime yet. He is also coming off injured reserve following a tear in his triceps. He most likely gets a second-round tender from the Eagles.
