Now It is Time for the Eagles to Look to the Free Agency Market
The season has come to a close with the AFC-NFC Pro Bowl during the first weekend in February.  It is time to turn our attention to the free-agency market that is coming up.  The Eagles, after a distasterous 3-13 season, need to look into the market for some legitimate help to sure up many of the holes in the Eagles ship.   During introduction of Andy Reid as the new head coach, owner Jeff Lurie stated that he will overpay to get a free agent.  Hopefully it will be money well spent.   Read more on free agency in this month's issue of Eaglemac.

Duce and Douglas Provided Some Positives for the Eagles Futurestaley.gif (10071 bytes)
Ask any Eagles fan about this past season, you may get an ear-full of superlatives about how disgusting they were.  Now ask them about Duce Staley and Hugh Douglas, and you can get into an interesting conversation about what they hold for the future with the Eagles.  A look at these two players is the highlight of this edition of the site.

Mike Mamula Signs 4-Year Extension
On the day prior to the start of the free agency period, the Eagles signed defensive end Mike Mamula to a four-year extension, for a reported $11.5 million for four years and a $2 million signing bonus.  With the incentives in the agreement, if Mamula reaches them, he could make nearly $14 million.  Despite Mamula missing all of last season due to a knee injury, the Eagles did not have many options available on the free agency market, and the new defensive coordinator, Jim Johnson, liked him.  This will allow the Eagles to continue with the delayed experiment, having Mamula and Hugh Douglas as the defensive ends.
Other Eagles who were restrictive free agents were tendered an offer.  Some of the notables were QB Bobby Hoying, TE Jason Dunn, WR Dietrich Jells, and TE Kaseem Sinceno.

Coaching Staff Complete for Reid
Head Coach Andy Reid completed his staff this past week with the hiring of his defensive staff, led by new defensive coordinator, Jim Johnson.  Last week, the offensive staff and special teams coach were announced.  Now it is time for them to prepare for the upcoming free agency period and the draft.

Duce Is An Ace, Selected Eagles MVP
Duce Staley ended up with the task of having to replace Rickey Watters in the backfield, due to an early season injury to Charlie Garner.  So what did Duce do?   He gained over 1,000 yards rushing and showed the Eagles and their fans that he was really an ace.  For his efforts, he was selected as the Eagles MVP from Eagles Digest.
