NFL free agency will start in less than a month, and the Philadelphia Eagles have a couple of needs that will have to be addressed this offseason. The team finished 10-6 in Chip Kelly’s first year as head coach, establishing franchise records in points scored and total yards gained.

General manager Howie Roseman’s job will be to continue managing the salary cap in such a way that allows the Eagles to pursue a big-name free agent should it be necessary.
