May 12th is a big deal if Eagles are looking to sign a free agent

Now see, that is NOT fake news… on May 12th, all NFL teams are allowed by rule to sign Free Agents out there WITHOUT having to sacrifice a COMPENSATORY PICK in the 2018 Draft …

Bang a gong! — now I am back on the beat!

Frankly, I don’t think the Eagles give a hoot about the free agents that are still out there… OR DO THEY?

Obviously they are not interested in guys like Victor Cruz or Anquan Boldin, right? I mean, wide receiver seems to be covered (hehe) at the moment….but what about running back position?

Welp, you can peruse this list of “still available” free agents and pick yourn own poison:
