How the Eagles Can Solidify Each Position for the 2009 Season

The franchise tagging period has passed. The NFL Combine is currently in full swing. The free agent period and draft will be here before you know it.

The NFL off season is not known to be a dull time and this year is no exception. A record has been set for the number of franchise tags placed. Two potential free agents have already signed humongous contracts that have made them the richest ever at their respective positions.

Where does that leave my beloved Eagles?? While some fans are depressed because a highly coveted player was locked up by their present team(i.e.-Carolina OT Jordan Gross), I think the Eagles are still in strong position to make themselves an early contender for a trip to Miami next year.

It's going to take some luck. It's going to take some brains. It's going to take some accommodations by the front office and the player (No need to go into training camp with any unnecessary drama). But, most of all, it's going to take some aggressive, confident moves.

No longer can Andy Reid afford to say "I believe we can compete with the guys we have." Joe Banner already told us the definition of insanity.

I'm going to look at each position category of the team. From there I'll look at 10 available players (the top five current free agents; the top five NFL prospects) and their strengths and weaknesses.

Please take into consideration the Eagles philosophy and the players that best fit that. Please enjoy the "HTK Solution" to a Pedal To The Metal approach...
