13 NFL free company predictions on Cowboys, Patriots, Bears, and Lamar Jackson – SB Nation
Dallas Cowboys signal James Bradberry. C.J. Gardner-Johnson may not be the one member of the Eagles 2022 secondary on his method out of Philadelphia. Darius Slay has been given permission to discover a commerce, and James Bradberry is about to hit free company as nicely. Heading into the offseason, the Dallas Cowboys have wants at huge receiver, and cornerback. They can be smart so as to add Bradberry and put him throughout from Trevon Diggs, giving the Cowboys a really strong 1-2 punch within the secondary. Then they’ll add to the huge receiver room through the draft. Or…they might do that.
Some encouraging indicators from James Bradberry on eve of free company – NBCSP
“I know there’s definitely interest from the Eagles,” Bradberry mentioned, in response to Anderson’s tweet. “I would love to play for the Eagles. I definitely see how bright the future is for the team. I’m just waiting to hear on the exact terms from them. “I believe they’re also waiting for what the market tells us as well, because I’m also anticipating interest from other teams, too. So they told me whoever calls, just make sure I also give them a chance to match.”Bradberry mentioned a couple of days after the Super Bowl the 2 figuring out elements the place he would signal had been the prospect to return to the postseason and naturally cash. “I think it will be a combination of winning and money,” he mentioned on locker cleanout day. “Those two things are the most important to me – being on a good roster, having the ability to get to the playoffs and make a run in the playoffs. But also I don’t want to play for cheap, you know?” Bradbery’s scenario might be affected by shut buddy and secondary colleague Darius Slay, whose personal contract scenario is one other problem going through the Eagles proper now.
Eagles mock mailbag: Free company, offseason questions the crew may ask – The Athletic
I might be shocked if Bradberry returns — particularly if Slay is again. It appears unlikely the Eagles will commit large cash this yr to 2 cornerbacks north of 30, and Bradberry earned the massive contract that’s coming his method. Gardner-Johnson’s age (25) and flexibility would make him the kind of participant the Eagles would attempt to preserve, and so they had been keen to pay large for Marcus Williams final season. But if Gardner-Johnson makes top-of-the-market cash, it could be too wealthy for Philadelphia. My guess is the Eagles are affected person with the secondary. Remember: Bradberry and Gardner-Johnson weren’t added till after the draft final yr. I don’t assume Sean Desai will know his 5 doubtless starters till then.
Free Agency Preview – Iggles Blitz
The good choice might be for the Eagles to draft a CB. Rookies can are available and contribute instantly. The Eagles have had luck find veteran corners lately. They traded for Darius Slay again in 2020. In 2021 they signed Steve Nelson in July. Last yr they added Bradberry in May. The Eagles don’t need to rush into making a transfer. If they wish to signal a younger nook, Byron Murphy or Sean Murphy-Bunting might be good choices. If they need a veteran, Patrick Peterson would make sense. He will flip 33 this summer season, however nonetheless had 5 INTs final yr and might be momentary resolution. Marcus Peters is one other older nook. He’s been a playmaker all through his profession. I feel they’ll wait to see what occurs with the draft.
Scratch one title linked to Cowboys as Jalen Ramsey is traded to Dolphins – Blogging The Boys
Ramsey was seen by many as a logical goal for the Cowboys, who had some actual cornerback points after Anthony Brown and Jourdan Lewis had been each misplaced to IR final season. He is among the high corners within the league, and the considered him within the secondary alongside Travon Diggs was definitely interesting. But, as with all the massive names linked to Dallas previously few years, it was one thing that was by no means very more likely to occur. First, ever for the reason that Brandon Carr acquisition and the commerce as much as snag Morris Claiborne, each of which had been seen as not residing as much as the expectations, the Cowboys have turn out to be very danger averse to investing an excessive amount of cap area or draft capital in gamers. Their regular strategy now could be to keep away from large trades or free agent signings and to choose buying and selling again to buying and selling up once they do elect to maneuver round within the draft. The homeowners, notably EVP Stephen Jones, are very dedicated to their method of doing issues. They are keen to generally bundle late-round picks to maneuver up, or to ship them to different groups for a participant they assume may also help, just like the sixth-rounder they used to amass Johnathan Hankins final season. Amari Cooper is the exception to this within the current previous.
Eagles’ departures will hammer dwelling how brutal the Super Bowl loss was – PhillyVoice
If you wish to imagine and dream wholeheartedly, I received’t cease any fan from doing that. That’s the fantastic thing about fandom, the highs and lows that make the eventual championship win oh-so candy. I can’t, nonetheless, shake the sensation that I simply lined the perfect Eagles crew of all time, they didn’t get it achieved on the massive stage and the trail again there may be as fierce as a trek to Mordor. Frodo and the gang, towards all odds, did end the job, so possibly this Eagles fellowship will get it achieved subsequent February, however home windows are at all times smaller than we wish to imagine. If this was this group’s greatest shot at profitable all of it, the loss will harm extra because the years go on than the collective hangover that the Delaware Valley had on the morning of Feb. 13.
Eagles All-22 Film Review: Probably must say goodbye to Miles Sanders – BGN
Spotrac has his market worth at 2 years $14m which might rank tenth on the place on a per-year foundation. It is hardly an enormous dedication, however it’s nonetheless quite a bit for a crew with cap limitations. The Eagles want cash this yr and I don’t assume they’ll afford to commit any to a working again. I do assume Sanders might be higher than lots of people assume, and he did have a extremely good yr as a runner, however I simply don’t assume it is a good selection. However, I’ll add, that the Eagles do want to interchange Sanders. Those of you who’ve adopted me for some time know I actually like Trey Sermon and I might love him to get an opportunity, however there is no such thing as a method the Eagles ought to go into the season subsequent yr with Kenneth Gainwell and Boston Scott as their 1 and a pair of. The working again is an enormous a part of this Eagles’ offense and it might have to hold the crew subsequent yr, so this crew wants a professional choice at beginning working. I simply don’t assume that man will probably be Miles Sanders.

While the Eagles’ protection had success in 2022 by recording 70 sacks and inflicting strain on 33.4 p.c of dropbacks, the unit will doubtless bear modifications this offseason. The Eagles retained Brandon Graham on a one-year deal, however different key members of the defensive entrance, Javon Hargrave and Fletcher Cox, are set without spending a dime company. As for the secondary, Philly allowed a -6.4 completion proportion over anticipated on passes of 10 or extra air yards final season, and although the Eagles can credit score impending free brokers C.J. Gardner-Johnson and James Bradberry for such success, it could be a problem for GM Howie Roseman to maintain this group collectively. Not to say, Darius Slay is also on his method out. With working backs Miles Sanders and Boston Scott hitting the market, Philly could select to maneuver on in favor of somebody new who’ll pair nicely with dual-threat QB Jalen Hurts.

Sam Bradford was in Carson Wentz’s league for expensive gamers. From Shaun Meyer: “You may very well be right that no player has cost so much and delivered so little as Carson Wentz, but since you did say ‘in NFL history,’ I’d like to nominate Sam Bradford as a contender. I’d love to see a similar breakdown.” I received 12 such emails previously few days, all saying, What about Sam Bradford? It is comparable.

In his greatest yr, 2017, Wentz went 11-2 as a starter for Philadelphia with 33 TD passes earlier than injuring his knee and being misplaced for the season—the yr the Eagles received the Super Bowl. To purchase Wentz in commerce, three groups traded a complete of 9 picks for him—three first-round picks, a second-, 4 third-round picks and a fourth-.

In his greatest yr, 2016, Bradford accomplished a league-best 71.6 p.c of his passes with a 20-to-5 TD-to-interception radio for the Vikings. To purchase Bradford in commerce, two groups dealt—mixed—picks within the first, second and fourth rounds. The large distinction, clearly, is that groups spent eight picks within the first three rounds to amass Wentz, whereas groups spent two picks within the first three rounds to amass Bradford. It’s shut, however the wasted worth for Wentz outweighs the waste for Bradford.
