The Eagles Strike Again......................
I know we have a thread started already for other teams signings but these guys deserve their own. When a team decides that it needs to improve itself in order to stay or get more competitive this is how you do it!
Jerry Angelo, if these guys are giving a seminar on how to fix your holes I sincerely hope that you will attend. The Eagles got absolutely torched through the air last year so how did they go about assuring that wouldn't happen again this year.
Try adding Nnamdi Asomugha and Dominique Roger-Cromartie to Asante Samuel at CB and signing Cullen Jenkins (7 sacks) and Jason Babin (12.5) sacks for your Dline. Now that's what I call aggressively meeting your needs.
The Eagles strike again

Less than 24 hours after signing the biggest free agent on the market in cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha, the Birds continued to upgrade their defense by agreeing to terms on a five-year, $25 million contract with defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins.
The 30-year-old Jenkins is coming off a career-high seven-sack season with the Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers. Now an Eagle, Jenkins will be an upgrade to the current defensive tackle tandem of Mike Patterson and Broderick Bunkley.
We’d say the move puts the finishing touches on a monster week that has seen Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, Jason Babin, Nnamdi Asomugha, Vince Young and now Jenkins become Eagles, but we still aren’t sure if these guys are finished wheeling and dealing.
