The Philadelphia Eagles 2011 free-agent class was among the best the league has ever seen. Following their post-lockout offseason coup, many had expected the Eagles to be Super Bowl contenders, however, thanks to some glaring holes on defense and an offense that had a proclivity for turning the ball over, the Eagles fell well short of those lofty expectations.
Expected to have a modest amount of salary cap space headed into this offseason's free-agent signing period, the Eagles aren't expected to make nearly as big a splash this year as last.
