Ok people, my preliminary offseason game plan.

Apologies for those who hate this stuff, but I have to do something Eagle related.

First statement is overall, we always find a way, and while we have the worst cap situation in the league, Howie will find a way to do some things. But, he will not be able to do everything. We have 53 players and 14 of our own free agents to consider.

How bad is our cap situation?

Pretty bad.

We are 4.9M over the cap, worst in the league, and the team in 31st place has 12M more than us. Yikes!

Our 4.9M over the cap has zero cap alloted for our own free agents. YIKES!

The draft pool of 4.6M is not considered in that with our pittence of a draft pool, we should be able to break even for cap as we will clear enough cap room by cuts to make room for ant draftees that make the team.

However, I think there is a way back to a reasonable cap position.

1st - Foles is off the trading block until at least Wentz proves in training camp that he is 100%. Even with that, my inclination is to not trade him at all. The value of having our season still be alive if Wentz goes down is worth his salary.

Starting point (4.9)

Cap Cuts:
T. Smith + 5.0 -Nice guy but Hollins may even be an upgrade
Celek +4.0 (5.0- 1.0 dead $). Ask him to retire. Give him a coaching job if he wants
Kendricks + 4.4 - (7.6-3.2 dead $). He played half snaps of Hicks and Bradham
Warmack +1.1 ( 1.9-0.8 dead $). He can't play. Every Mill counts
Maragos + 1.5 ( 2.0-0.5 dead$). Good player. Can't afford luxury of having him
Subtotal before FA signing = +11.1M
FA Signings:
Bradham 4.0 ( 3 yrs with year one 4.0 cap hit S/b doable)
Burton 3.0 ( 4 yrscwith a year one cap hit of 3.0 s/b doable)
Sproles 1.4 ( I offerchim Vet Min of 1.0+ 0.4 SB, take it or leave it)
C. Graham 1.4 (same as Sproles)
Ellerbee 0.9 ( vet minimum like he got this year)
Total FA Signings (10.7M)
Net cap room = 0.4M

If need be, we can restructure B. Brooks contract by converting salary to signing bonus and we will pickup at least 4 M of cap. We could also trade or cut Kendricks after June 1st to gain another 1.6 of cap this year.

Thoughts on our other free agents :
Allen - very good backup but can't afford him. Time for Qualls and Vaeao to step up.
Robinson - exc CB but can't afford him. Time for Douglas and Jones to step up.
Blount - appreciate the year but can't afford to keep all RB. Smallwood/Sproles fill in.
Goode, Braman, Barner, Sturgis, Beatty - sorry guys, need to make room
Watkins - as a RFA, we could prob get him for 0.7 M if we choose.

Even with these guys going, we have an excellent team.

As far as the draft goes, we have six picks. With the first three picks (1st,4th,4th) I draft 2 LB and one OG in no specific order. The boards I checked out have 7-8 prospects at these positions within the first 128 picks of the draft. The others let the chips fall where the board takes us. I know we should go BPA at PON, and I assume there will be good prospects there.

No new FA. A dull FA period, but when you have the best roster, that's fine by me.



I like your plan a lot Mike! I think that Clement is a rising star though and will give us more than Sproles can coming off the injury. Also, can we trust Hicks to be able to stay on the field? He couldn't even stay healthy in college. Somehow, someway we have to keep Bradham!
