Tra Thomas leaving.
Dawkins, Buck, and Considine will hurt, each in their own way. Not sure about Thomas. Hard to argue with what this front office has done in the last 10 years, though (except for not bring in another stud WR).
Dawkins, Buckhalter depart Eagles for Denver; Considine joins Jaguars

HOPES DASHED, raised, and dashed again?
Several hours after a San Francisco Chronicle report about Brian Dawkins' agreeing to a contract with the Denver Broncos rocked Eagles Nation yesterday afternoon, agent Jim Steiner, asked to clarify, texted the Daily News that he was "in negotiations," which is not usually what agents say when they have reached an agreement.
Then late last night, profootballtalk.com reported Dawkins indeed had agreed to terms with Denver.
The Broncos announced some signings yesterday, including the 4-year deal struck with Eagles free-agent running back Correll Buckhalter. They did not announce anything about Dawkins, 35, whose fierce play and plainspoken style won him a legion of fans. Strong safety Quintin Mikell has called Dawkins "the cornerstone of the defense and this team."
