The Philadelphia Eagles are now the Miami Heat of the NFL. They have signed anyone and everyone this offseason, even offering a contract to the recently retired Randy Moss.

Obviously, their biggest move was the theft of cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha from the Oakland Raiders, but it was the sheer volume and speed of their moves as a whole that made it seem like the Eagles signed every single available free agent in the past week.

From Vince Young at the backup quarterback position to Cullen Jenkins and Jason Babin on the defensive line, this Eagles team has signed plenty of superstars. These guys join what was already a dynamite group that includes Michael Vick, DeSean Jackson, Jeremy Maclin and Asante Samuel.

The Miami Heat on the other hand, have no depth whatsoever.
