The Philadelphia Eagles entered free agency with a lot of money to spend but generally avoided splurging on sexy names, which is a big reason I believe they "won" free agency.
After parting with the last remnants of the Andy Reid "Dream Team" era (Cullen Jenkins, Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie), Philly went out and invested in relatively young players, typically from winning teams, who fit the mold Chip Kelly and his coaching staff are looking for.
Kenny Phillips is only 26 with star potential, and he's signed for only $2 million a year. Bradley Fletcher has the ability to be a No. 1 corner, but he's costing the Eagles only $2.6 million a year. Cary Williams and Patrick Chung are big and aggressive, which is what they want. Connor Barwin and Isaac Sopoaga fit the scheme, and I can't wait to see what they do with the versatile James Casey (less than $3 million a year) on offense.
Hindsight could change everything, but this looks like an ideal free-agent haul.
