When free agency opens in two months, the Eagles will have to make decisions about nine players:
Defensive end Bryan Braman, cornerback Nolan Carroll and linebacker Najee Goode are all unrestricted free agents. So are defensive tackle Bennie Logan, linebacker Stephen Tulloch and offensive lineman Stefen Wisniewski. They’re free to sign with whomever they choose.
Running back Kenjon Barner and tight end Trey Burton are both restricted free agents. That means the Eagles are allowed to match the offer of any other interested team or they can make an offer themselves. Safety Jaylen Watkins rounds out the list. The Eagles own exclusive rights to him, meaning he’d be unable to explore other options if he’s offered a deal.
Lockers were cleaned out on Monday. All nine of these guys become free agents on March 9th. The off-season begins now.
