One of their key free agents is Correll Buckhalter. Their interest in Morris could signal that they aren't close to re-signing Buckhalter and have started to look for a replacement. Buckhalter was one of the Eagles free agents that they had questionable interest in re-signing. While he had a good season for them in 2006, he has had a lot of injuries throughout his career and the Eagles were interested in signing a more reliable back to compliment Brian Westbrook.
So far, Buckhalter hasn't garnered a lot of attention on the free agent market, but may start to get some calls now that Morris is gone. Eagles wide receiver Donte Stallworth also hasn't had as many lucrative offers as he might have expected in the early going of free agency. The Eagles had pretty well decided that they wouldn't bring Stallworth back, deciding instead to give more playing time to Hank Baskett and other young receivers on the roster. Plus, re-signing Stallworth would have cost the Eagles a third round pick as part of the deal with New Orleans that brought him to Philadelphia. If they don't re-sign him, the pick drops to a fourth round pick in the draft.
