It seems that the Eagles are gearing up to make a big push for some more expensive FAs...Asomugha? Ray Edwards?
Here are the Eagles free agents:
K David Akers, LB Stewart Bradley, OC/OG Nick Cole, LB Omar Gaither, S Antoine Harris, CB Ellis Hobbs, RB Jerome Harrison, OLB Akeem Jordan, OG Max Jean-Gilles, S Quintin Mikell, DE Bobby McCrary, CB Dimitri Patterson, P Sav Rocca, OLB Ernie Sims, and OG Reggie Wells.http://profootballtalk.nbcsports.com/20 ... ee-agents/
Eagles won’t re-sign any of their unrestricted free agents

Most teams talk endlessly about the importance of re-signing their own players. The Eagles are taking the exact opposite approach.
The Eagles won’t re-sign any of their free agents.
Jonathan Tamari of the Philadelphia Inquirer reports that the team won’t pursue linebacker Stewart Bradley. Or safety Quintin Mikell. Or punter Sav Rocca. Or running back Jerome Harrison. Others that will get ignored: cornerback Dimitri Patterson, center Nick Cole and guard Max Jean-Gilles.
Bradley and Harrison are probably the biggest surprises on that list. Harrison produced well as LeSean McCoy’s backup, but the team drafted a running back and will look elsewhere in free agency. Bradley was a team leader for a while, but won’t merit an offer.
We know the Eagles are gearing up to make big moves in free agency. They needed to clear the decks, and they did so by letting go of their entire free agent class.
