If you look at the top 14 on this table, some who are better teams than us, it may be difficult to compete with FA offers given that some of the top teams can over pay significantly just to use some cap and avoid the underpayment penalty contribution.

If a guys value is $7M per year, some of these guys can pay him $10M per year just to use some of their cap and avoid the year end contribution. I always suspected that's what OAK did with Nate Allen last year. Remember that deal?

It will be interesting to see what some of the deals are signed for.
Zero
Or, it could be that the Eagles will be very limited in who they pursue so that they can also overpay to fill a hole. That should limit them to two players.
