10 moves that made the Eagles contenders

When the Philadelphia Eagles vice president of football operations was placed back in charge of personnel in 2016, Ian Desmond Youth jersey a year after Chip Kelly's power play pushed him out, http://www.authenticclevelandindiansshop.com/Andrew-Miller-Jersey Roseman was tasked with revitalizing a roster that had been stripped Domata Peko Youth jersey down and disjointedly pieced back together. Gone were http://www.brownsfootballofficialprostore.com/barkevious-mingo-jersey_c-401.html LeSean McCoy and Jeremy Maclin (and DeSean Jackson before them).

In their place were high-priced misfits such as DeMarco Murray and cornerback Byron Maxwell. With Sam Bradford set to become a free agent, they didn't have a quarterback under contract."It was a challenging situation," Roseman said at the close of the '16 season, "and it starts with the quarterback position."

His ability to maneuver from the 13th to the second pick in the 2016 NFL draft and solve the QB problem by selecting Carson Wentz was the catalyst for the Eagles' rapid turnaround, as they soared to a 13-3 record and Kyle Palmieri Youth jersey a No. 1 seed in the playoffs after a pair of 7-9 seasons behind the MVP-level play of their signal-caller.

But the significant work didn't stop there. Of http://www.authentickingstore.com/-13-kyle-clifford-jersey_c-491.html the 64 players on the Eagles' current roster, only 22 are holdovers from '15. That's a 66 percent turnover rate. Along with vice president of player personnel Joe Douglas, Roseman has orchestrated a massive overhaul that has Philly well-positioned to be long-term contenders.

"The last couple years, [he has made] remarkable franchise-changing decisions," Eagles Adam Lind Jersey owner Jeffrey Lurie said at the beginning of the season.They first acquired the eighth overall pick from Miami in exchange for LB Kiko Alonso, Maxwell and the 13th overall pick in 2016.

Now in striking distance, Roseman sent the No. 8 overall pick, a third- and fourth-rounder in '16, first-rounder in '17 and a second-rounder in '18 for the No. 2 overall pick http://www.officialwhitesoxproshop.com/Adam_Laroche_Jersey and a fourth-rounder in '17 from the Cleveland Browns. Wentz has made them look really smart ever since.

With their quarterback of the future in the fold, they traded Bradford to the Minnesota Vikings following the Teddy Bridgewater injury for a first-round pick in 2017 and a fourth-round pick in 2018.

They used that first-rounder on DE Derek Barnett, who was a regular part of the defensive line rotation and finished the season with five sacks, 32 QB hits/pressures and nine tackles for loss.

The Eagles desperately needed to upgrade their receivers and ended up signing the biggest free-agent fish to a one-year, incentive-laden deal. Jeffery (57 catches, 789 yards, nine TDs) proved to be a locker room fit,and was recently signed to a four-year, $52 million extension. nba jerseys cheap cheap jerseys china wholesale jerseys new nike nfl jerseys mlb jerseys cheap discount nfl jerseys wholesale nba jerseys nike nfl jerseys wholesale
