The 2014 NFL draft may be over, but the Philadelphia Eagles’ work isn’t quite finished yet. Every year, 32 NFL teams climb all over each other to sign the best of the best remaining players whose names weren’t called on draft weekend.
After all the wheeling and dealing, the Eagles wound up making seven selections this year, bringing their roster to 75 players. That leaves room to sign up to 15 more rookies before reaching the limit of 90.
While the front office was able to fill needs at outside linebacker, wide receiver, cornerback, safety and defensive line during the draft, there’s still room for improvement at several key areas. An offensive guard or two could be considered a must with both Evan Mathis and Todd Herremans in their 30s. Don’t forget place-kicker, either, where Alex Henery should be forced to compete for his job.
After trading Bryce Brown to the Buffalo Bills over the weekend, running back could be another target, as well as tight end, where Brent Celek is approaching 30 and James Casey isn’t making much of an impact.
Don't be surprised if head coach Chip Kelly scoops up any Oregon players who weren't claimed over the weekend, either. He already spent two of the franchise's picks on former recruits in this year's draft.
We’ll be updating this space with pertinent details on all of the latest additions as they come in, so keep it here and check back often for the latest information on the Eagles’ undrafted free-agent signings.
