Much of the struggles of the 2012 Philadelphia Eagles can be attributed to failed free-agent acquisitions. Andy Reid went on a splurge during the ’11 offseason that was supposed to make the Eagles the team to beat in the NFC.
Instead, many of the high-profile players backfired, and the Eagles found themselves at 8-8 on the outside looking in once the playoffs started. The poor play has carried over to ’12, and the 3-6 Eagles likely won’t reach the postseason for the second-straight season.
Reid’s tenure with the Eagles is as good as done, and it’s as appropriate of a time as ever to look back at the worst free-agent signings he’s made with the Eagles.
