The Philadelphia Eagles' future is as unclear as it's ever been. After their abysmal 2012 campaign, the Birds will be looking to rebuild themselves through the draft and free agency.
However, there isn’t a name in the football world whose migration to the City of Brotherly Love could single-handedly turn around the Eagles franchise. And there is also only so much talent available in the upcoming draft.
A major flaw in the team’s current philosophy has undoubtedly been its reliance on free agency. Although it has been a failure to this point, that doesn’t mean that the Birds should shy away from adding talent from the free-agent pool. This is especially true when considering the amount of young talent that will be available during the 2013 offseason.
To be specific, the offensive line, the secondary and the wide receiver positions can be strengthened this upcoming offseason. If nothing else, some of these players could serve as placeholders to keep the team competitive while the next regime develops its draft class.
For a team with as many big names as the Eagles, they have a surprising amount of salary cap space. And if the team decides to part ways with some of its high-priced underachievers, like Michael Vick, Nnamdi Asomugha, and Demetress Bell, they will have even more money to work with—much of which will be allocated to adding depth through free agency.
The following slideshow will provide a realistic view of who the Eagles could add during the upcoming offseason.
