Maybe I’m being premature, but it seems like the Eagles are done with Day One.
* They signed S Malcolm Jenkins to a 3-year deal.
* They re-signed P Donnie Jones.
* They cut S Patrick Chung.
I’d call that a good day.
I’ll write a lengthy post on Jenkins in the morning. For now, I wanted to get up a post so the free agent discussion could continue.
Eagles still must figure out 2nd safety spot, whether in FA or draft. Need more than Wolff. Next few days will be interesting.

The Eagles could still add another Safety. They can still make a play for CB Darelle Revis. There are also some freshly cut pass rushers in DeMarcus Ware and Julius Peppers. Ware is reportedly talking to the Broncos.
The Eagles needed to add a starting Safety. They did that today so that’s huge in my book. They still need help at OLB, but there weren’t great options so it is smart that they didn’t throw money at anyone recklessly. I am really curious to see if they talk to Ware or think he wouldn’t be a good fit.
There are still plenty of good players on the market. Hopefully prices will come down and the team can sign some good players to reasonable contracts. As happens every year, there was some crazy money thrown around today. That usually goes away quickly and the market settles a bit.
