Unlike the Dallas Cowboys, their NFC East rivals, the Philadelphia Eagles are making clear that they intend to make a splash once the lockout ends.
The Cowboys have played the situation close to the vest, with owner and general manager Jerry Jones saying, essentially, that the team’s approach to free agency will depend largely on the CBA that as of yet doesn’t exist. Eagles’ GM Howie Roseman, on the other hand, believes his team to be a few pieces short of a Super Bowl run--pieces that may be found in free agency.
"I think there are going to be a lot of opportunities in front of us, players looking for short-term deals who want to win a championship," Roseman told Yahoo! Sports’ Michael Silver. "Any good player that we think can help our team, we're going to take a hard look at."
Of course for now, a “hard look” is all the Eagles can give free agents as, with the lockout in place, there is no free agency. Which has left eager GMs like Roseman chomping at the bit for a new CBA to be put into place.
“We need to get this [labor dispute] settled,” Roseman said. “I’m ready for some action – right now.”
