With the impending free-agent market beginning to develop, what positions will the Philadelphia Eagles need to sign to set in motion a playoff run for the 2013-2014 season?
It cannot be understated that the Eagles will have a ton of cap space. This figure can only grow, as the Eagles must make personnel decisions on large contract players like Michael Vick and Nnamdi Asomugha.
So, with all the money to spend, what positions do the Eagles need to spend it on? The following grading scale has been assigned and will be used to grade the team at each position:
A - No free-agent signing necessary
B - Free-agent signing only if bargain or depth available
C - Free-agent signing would be ideal, but not absolutely necessary
D - At least one starter at position needs to be replaced with a free agent
F - Impact free agent is desperate need
Keep in mind that these grades are relative to free-agency need. That means that while stats may not prove a position is an "A" worthy, a free-agent signing would be the wrong move.
