The Eagles pulled of the coup of the century with their combined moves in free agency and trades this summer. I'm not even sure I could convince the computer to allow these trades in Madden 2012. Andy Reid, Joe Banner and Howie Roseman deserve a big, fat raise.
Rookies: G Danny Watkins (unsigned), LB Greg Lloyd, RB Stanley Havili, LB Brian Rolle, C Jason Kelce, G Julian Vandervelde, RB Dion Lewis, K Alex Henery, LB Casey Matthews, CB Curtis Marsh, S Jaiquawn Jarrett
Thankfully, the Eagles' draft was very average, otherwise we might as well cancel the season and give the boys in Philly the trophy.
Danny Watkins might start as a rookie and look for the three linebackers to all see major playing time.
Released: RB Noel Devine, DE Jeremy Clark, CB Gerard Lawson, RB Leonard Weaver

Even as I type this tonight, having read the Eagles' transactions beforehand, I still cannot believe the haul they were able to bring in through free agency. It's really quite amazing.
Not only did the Eagles sign the best unrestricted free agent on the market in Nnamdi Asomugha, they also traded for a top-15 cornerback and got a second-round pick as part of the deal. To top it off, they added stud defensive linemen in Babin and Jenkins.
The offense did not need help, but it got it anyway in potential role players Higgins, Lee and Mathis. Vince Young may be the wild card here, as the Eagles need insurance in case of a Michael Vick injury. Under Andy Reid, Young will probably turn into Randall Cunningham 2.0.
The Eagles are absolutely loaded. Anything less than a Super Bowl win will be a disappointment.
