The Philadelphia Eagles have lost several key players during the NFL’s legal tampering period. Defensive lineman Javon Hargrave, offensive tackle Andre Dillard, linebackers T.J. Edwards and Kyzir White, and free safety Marcus Epps have all left the team, and cornerback Darius Slay has been released. Hargrave, Edwards, and Epps were all starters on the Eagles’ defense last season.
Dillard was a backup who made nine starts in 43 games, while White was a spot starter on last year’s team. However, the Eagles have had some positive news this offseason. Center Jason Kelce and Brandon Graham are both staying with the team, and the Eagles have reportedly signed former Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny.
Hargrave has agreed to a four-year, $84 million deal with the 49ers. Edwards, a starter on the Eagles’ defense the previous three seasons, has agreed to a three-year deal with the Chicago Bears that is worth $19.25 million with $12 million guaranteed. Epps has reportedly agreed to a two-year, $12 million deal with the Las Vegas Raiders. Dillard is signing a three-year, $29 million contract with the Tennessee Titans, while White has reportedly signed a two-year, $11 million deal with the Arizona Cardinals.
The Eagles have several free agents who have yet to sign with another team. That list includes right guard Isaac Seumalo, running backs Miles Sanders and Boston Scott, defensive tackles Fletcher Cox and Ndamukong Suh, defensive end Robert Quinn, and defensive backs C.J. Gardner-Johnson and James Bradberry.
