Philadelphia Eagles: Grading Early Free-Agency Moves

The Philadelphia Eagles have been relatively quiet thus far in free agency, despite terrific position in the salary cap that enables general manager Howie Roseman to make a big splash, should he be interested.

The team's obvious target of safety was addressed when the Eagles added New Orleans Saints' safety Malcolm Jenkins, per Larry Holder of The Times-Picayune. He's no Jairus Byrd or T.J. Ward though, and the fact that second-tier safeties like Donte Whitner and Antoine Bethea have already signed elsewhere suggests Philly will have to spend a high draft pick on a safety as well.

Roseman is being cautious after the "Dream Team" debacle of 2011, but there has been little upgrade thus far to a defense that could use an elite player. For now, here are the team's grades for the three new players who were signed, as well as the own free agent who was re-signed to a new deal and another player who was released.
