The Eagles picked up young cornerback Douglas Rodgers-Cromartie earlier in the week from their recent trade of Kevin Kolb to the Cardinals. The Eagles also have veteran and Pro Bowl corner Asante Samuel on the roster. My guess is that the Eagles will trade away Samuel, 30, to get maybe another receiver or linebacker and to get rid of the 6 million due on his contract.
Many say that with the Rodgers-Cromartie move and the Asomugha pick up the Eagles could be favorites to win the Super Bowl for the upcoming season. I say this is way to bold of a statement after making just a few offseason moves, even if they are some of the biggest. Yes Michael Vick played amazing last season, but will he do that again? Yes they have a great secondary, but what about their young and inexperienced linebacking unit? I think they have some question marks going into the season that they need to figure out before they can surpass the Packers and Patriots as preseason favorites.
