NFL Free Agency: Why the Eagles Will Sign Plaxico, Albert and Nnamdi

Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie has already stated his front office plans on being aggressive once free agency starts up. I believe that will turn out to be an understatement.

The Eagles have over $42 million worth of cap space right now, but that number will go down once they resign current players and sign draft picks. Michael Vick and DeSean Jackson are expected to get new deals, while Stewart Bradley and Sav Rocca need to be signed.

As of right now, both Rocca and Bradley are unrestricted free agents. But that depends on the new collective bargaining agreement. The Eagles should have somewhere around $25 million to $30 million to spend on free agency this season.

Last year, the Eagles' season ended at the hands of the eventual Super Bowl champs—the Green Bay Packers.

Throughout the 2010 season, the Eagles lacked a consistent pass rush, a red zone target and any talent whatsoever at the right cornerback position. Here's where the aggressive free agency plan comes in to play.

Plaxico Burress and Albert Haynesworth have both voiced interest on playing for the Eagles. Signing Nnamdi Asomugha seems likely as the Eagles have the most to spend of the Super Bowl contenders.

I know it sound absolutely insane that the Eagles could land all three players this offseason, but the team definitely has the means, and the players' desire, to get it done.
