I think the Eagles will pick up someone, but I'm not so assured they'd go after such a big name. Remember, we gots lots of key players to resign yet, and that Corey Simon franchise tag is going to hinder that cap space alot (why Reid, why did you tag this underperforming chump to an overpaid salary?).
Consider high priorities have to be: Westbrook, Trotter, Tra Thomas, Jon Ritchie, Mayberry, Keith Adams, Burgess, and Chad Lewis. That's alot of people. Now the Eagles can probably afford to not bother with Mayberry, possibly let Burgess go if he wants too much, and let LJ Smith take over Chad Lewis's role. Even then, that's still alot of resigning to do before we even think about a FA splash.
I think the Eagles will end up with a lesser WR than Jerry Porter. He's the 2nd best going into Free Agency, so he'll get lots of money thrown his way by plenty of teams.
