2012 NFL Offseason Rankings

4 of 33

3. Philadelphia Eagles

Best Move: WR DeSean Jackson (Re-signed)

Best Draft Pick: LB Mychal Kendricks (Second Round)

Key Loss: CB Asante Samuel (Trade with Falcons)

Overall: The Eagles made a concerted effort to establish continuity, and re-signed and extended several key veterans (Jackson, DE Trent Cole, OT Todd Herremans, OG Evan Mathis). Re-signing Jackson was a coup considering it looked bleak after he was deactivated for a game last season. The Eagles also upgraded their linebackers by trading for middle linebacker DeMeco Ryans and drafting Mychal Kendricks in the second round. Even with all the re-signings, shrewd general manager Howie Roseman had the Eagles in good enough cap shape to grab the top left tackle remaining in free agency after they lost Jason Peters to an Achilles injury. The Eagles still left themselves enough money to extend RB LeSean McCoy and CB Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie some time this season. Philadelphia's in good shape after an exceptional offseason and primed for a real run in 2012. (AP Photo/David J. Phillip)
