You think the Eagles had a lot of turnover this offseason?
Hold your horses, Bucko!
Over The Cap’s Jason Fitzgerald ranked all 32 NFL teams by roster turnover and he found that the Eagles rank among the teams with the most continuity (aka fewest turnover) heading into 2017:
30. When the Eagles made all those aggressive contract extensions in early 2016 I said that the team was set for the next two or three years and they are holding that pattern. The team lost only 0.9% of their snaps on offense and was able to find a way to add LeGarrette Blount (above), Alshon Jeffery and Torrey Smith so they need Carson Wentz to show a big leap this year to get more out of the team. They sacrificed a bit on defense to keep adding to the offense by letting Bennie Logan walk and cutting Connor Barwin, but the defense was a problem either way.
