Recapping The Eagles Off-Season

With the Eagles doing what they can to get Green Bay's Javon Walker and the NFL Draft right around the corner, it's time to look back on the moves that the Eagles have made since the end of the season.

FRANCHISE PLAYER: None.
TRANSITION PLAYER: None.

UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS

  • S Jack Brewer is a solid special teams player, but Sean Considine's return from a shoulder injury makes him expendable.
  • LB Justin Ena is a good special teams player who also provides depth in the middle and on the strong side. Probably will be re-signed at some point.
  • RB Lamar Gordon fumbles too much to suit Eagles coach Andy Reid and really wasn't all that effective as a short-yardage runner.
  • P Sean Landeta was effective as a late-season replacement, but with Dirk Johnson healthy again, he won't be re-signed.
  • TE Chad Lewis re-signed at midseason after recovering from a foot injury. But he doesn't have much left in the tank and won't be back.
RESTRICTED FREE AGENTS
  • P Dirk Johnson (tendered at $721,600 with no compensation) missed much of last season with a sports hernia injury, but Eagles like his consistent punting. Johnson has drawn some interest on the open market, but remains unsigned.
  • RB Reno Mahe (tendered at $721,600 with no compensation) led the NFC in punt returns last season and can be used as both a running back and wideout.
  • S Quentin Mikell (tendered at $721,600 with no compensation) has been a competent backup to starters Brian Dawkins and Mike Lewis. Also can play some corner in a pinch and is a solid special-teamer.
