Tracking Eagles news and rumors during free agency originally appeared nbc sports philadelphia

NFL free agency begins this week so we’ll be keeping track of all the Eagles news and rumors that come along the way:

Interested in Brissette?

The Eagles need a backup quarterback behind Jalen Hurts as Gardner Minshew is a free agent. And according to Aaron Wilson, the Eagles are one of the teams that have shown interest in veteran Jacoby Brissett.

Nick Siriani is in love with Brissette. We heard from him last summer when the Eagles practiced against the Browns in Ohio. But the problem here may be money. Brissett played very well for the Browns last season while they waited for Deshaun Watson’s suspension to expire. And he may have played himself out of bounds for the Eagles. Spotrac values ​​Brissett at $5.4 million, which may be too high for the Eagles. But if they can get Brissett’s numbers down enough then it counts for a lot.

We saw some backups go off the market on day one: Case Keenum, Mike White, Jarrett Stidham and Darnold all found new teams. The Eagles really value the QB position and a backup is a big deal on a team with playoff aspirations.

more people are going

After Javon Hargrave and TJ Edwards started the getaway, two more Eagles got going.

Andre Dillard -> Titans

Marcus Epps -> Raiders

Dillard’s three-year deal is reportedly worth $29 million, while Epps has received a two-year deal worth $12 million. Dillard was not going to return in 2023 as a backup. Epps was a starter in 2022 and fellow starting safety CJ Gardner-Johnson is also a free agent.

cunningham connection

The Bears struck first in free agency, landing TJ Edwards on a three-year deal. But the team with the most cap space this offseason can’t sign the former Eagles.

Cunningham was hired as the Bears’ assistant manager the previous season. He was previously the Eagles’ Director of Player Personnel and has been with the Eagles since 2017. So he played a big role in building the Eagles’ roster and now with a ton of cap space in Chicago, the Bears could bring in some of him. player rider

bradberry weighs

James Bradberry is one of the Eagles’ top pending free agents. It seems likely that he will sign elsewhere but the Eagles clearly want to stay in the loop.

The ability to match the part the Eagles want is certainly interesting. Not sure if they will be able to keep him even if given a chance. But it’s clear the Eagles would like to have him back if possible.

a ‘strong effort’

ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler There were a bunch of pre-free agency nuggets on CJ Gardner-Johnson including this:

“The Eagles have several key players they could bring back, and although it appears they are waiting for markets to develop before reacting, some around the league believe they have Made a strong effort to re-sign safety Chauncey Gardner-Johnson, who appears set for the open market. This could open the door to re-signing cornerback James Bradberry or another player.

Gardner-Johnson is getting his first chance to test free agency and it looks like he is going to hit the open market on Wednesday. It looks like the Eagles were willing to pay CJGJ, but if he leaves for a better deal elsewhere, perhaps the Eagles can funnel that money toward Bradberry or another player.
