We all know the Philadelphia Eagles' front office is going to be very aggressive once free agency starts up. The Eagles are a good football team but they are still a few pieces short of being a legitimate Superbowl contender.
The Eagles have many areas that need to be addressed this offseason. The right cornerback spot was a disaster last year and their pass rush faded as the season went on. The offensive line in general failed to protect Michael Vick consistently last year as evidence by his play in his final two starts last year. All these areas and more need to be heavily upgraded in order for the Eagles to finally get over the hump and bring the Lombardi Trophy to Philadelphia.
Nnamdi Asomugha, Jason Babin and Plaxico Burress have been the most talked about free agents as of late, and for good reason. Nnamdi physical dominates wide receivers right at the line or scrimmage. Jason Babin has 12.5 sacks last year and Plaixco Burress was one of the toughest wide outs to cover one on one.
All three players will expect big pay days and may be too expensive for the Eagles to be able to sign and still fix the other weaknesses as well.
I believe the Eagles need just five players in free agency to make the jump to legit contender.
