The Philadelphia Eagles have been one of the handful of teams rumored to be in the market for Nnamdi Asomugha. The Eagles have also been linked with the expected trade for Kevin Kolb to Arizona for Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie and additional compensation. Both of these rumors for whatever reason seem far fetched to me. The Eagles have a ton of room under the cap, but they also have several needs they could fill on defense.
The Asomugha deal seems far-fetched to me. The Eagles run a prudent organization under Andy Reid, always have, and always will. Just because they will be required to spend almost thirty million does not mean they will blow most of their money on one guy.
There is no doubt Asomugha is the best guy on the market, but they are shopping for multiple toys, not one expensive, flashy toy.
The Eagles will certainly look into receiving a starting caliber player for Kevin Kolb with whomever they trade with, but I am not sold on the fact that they have excluded other teams from the negotiations just yet. Free agents are not allowed to practice with their teams until August 4th biding time for the Eagles to shop Kolb around for a few extra days.
The Eagles really need to fill holes at several positions across the defensive depth chart besides just a right cornerback. The following is a list of free agents that seem like more reasonable picks for the Philadelphia Eagles.
