The Philadelphia Eagles have eight players who will become free agents this offseason. In a perfect world, the Eagles would find a way to keep all of them, as they have all served a function on the team in one way or another. Darryl Tapp has proven himself useful in certain pass-rushing situations, and King Dunlap has had experience as a starter and has shown some improvement.
Unfortunately, roster space and salary cap issues must be considered, and the Eagles cannot simply keep every player who might serve some sort of role on the team. Players must be let go and replaced for the good of the team.
But while some may call for a complete roster overhaul and for free agents to all be let go, the Eagles would be ridding themselves of some very valuable players. Some should be allowed to walk, but these four players must be retained.
