The Eagles seemed to be off to a slow start when the legal tampering period began and the Eagles were mentioned in none of the major moves.

That was until NFL Network's Mike Garafolo broke the news that former Temple Owl and Camden, NJ native Haason Reddick is expected to sign with his hometown team.

The deal is reportedly worth $45 million over three years with $30 million guaranteed. It's almost a certainty that there are void years on the contract to spread those cap hits out further.

Fans may have been disappointed with the Eagles free agency period last month, when they landed Hasson Reddick as the only star and were outbid on other players, particularly at defensive back and receiver.

While the acquisition of AJ Brown has certainly helped to calm the latter issue, the Eagles are hoping to do the same with the former following today's signing.

The Eagles announced on Wednesday that they had agreed to a one-year deal with James Bradberry.

Bradberry was perhaps the Giants top defender, but he was also set to make over $13 million this year and $21 million next year, neither of which were doable for the Giants in their current cap situation.

Penn State's new head basketball coach, Micah Shrewsberry, raved about big man John Harrar calling him the "heart and soul" of Penn State's basketball team following his fifth and final year with the program for the 2021-22 season.

Harrar averaged 27 minutes per game this last season across 31 games. He averaged around 10 points and 10 rebounds, too.

Before joining Penn State Hoops, he was a tight end set to commit to Army football. He'll be looking to see if he can find a role on the Philadelphia Eagles at the same position, according to his agent.

Eagles Officially Waive Nate Herbig

Although it was first reported a few days ago that the Birds were planning to release guard Nate Herbig, the team made the move official on Wednesday.

It is a bit of a shock to see the transaction officially his as a simple waiver. Often times a report such as this precedes a player with value getting traded for something because some team wants to make sure they aren't outbid or the player doesn't choose another franchise, but unfortunately that is not the case here.

UDFA Tracker: Eagles Sign Undrafted Free Agents Following Draft

The Eagles stuck with a best-available mindset in this draft and that, combines with a few trades, resulted in the teams making only five selections in the draft this year.

Naturally, this means the Eagles still have holes and open roster spots for camp. With no picks in the final round, it's no surprise that the Eagles are getting right to work signing the players they think slipped through the cracks.

This page will be updated as more signings are reported.

The Eagles were heading into the season with Dallas Goedert solidified as TE1, but behind him is nothing in stone.

The blocking-first Jack Stoll, who was an undrafted free agent last season and ended the year injured, camp standout Tyree Jackson, who spent essentially all of the last season on IR, veteran Richard Rodgers and Noah Togiai are the other vying for what are two positions behind Goedert.

Of course, it's been reported that JJ Arcega-Whiteside is switching to the position to add another to the competition.

With pick 198, the Birds added SMU's Grant Calcaterra to the fold for that spot, as well.

In a pair of trades, the Eagles essentially traded picks 154 and 237 for picks 181 and 198.

While it looked like Kingsley Enagbare or Matt Araiza would be available for the Eagles to fill the needs at edge or punter, they were selected at 179 and 180, the two pick before the one the Eagles had traded up to.

Instead, the Eagles selected Kyron Johnson out of Kansas, which may have been their plan all along.

It's hard to provide any real valuation because it's unknown where he'll play. The Eagles announced him at linebacker, his college position.

Eagles Grab Nakobe Dean In Third Round

Dean

By Paul Bowman, Sports Talk Philly Editor

So far in the 2022 draft, the Eagles have made just two picks (A defensive tackle and a center) after making a big-time trade for an established number one receiver.

After all that, the Birds had yet to address any of the needs they had entering the draft, which consisted of essentially every defensive position except for defensive tackle.

The Eagles have been going best available in an attempt to build the best team (and lines) they can.

The third round proved to be a positional match for the Eagles, as they Birds drafted Nakobe Dean out of Georgia with the 83rd pick.

Eagles Land Center Jurgens In Second Round

Jurgens

By Paul Bowman, Sports Talk Philly Editor

The Eagles have had a very unconventional drafts by their own standards.

Instead of standing pat, the Birds first moved up to draft DT Jordan Davis.

The Eagles then made a move to acquire AJ Brown and solidify their receiving corps.

It wasn't long after the second trade that a new extension for AJ Brown was announced.

The two trades, however, had left the Eagles with only four more picks in the draft with essentially all of the defensive needs they had entering the draft (S, CB, DE and LB) entirely unaddressed.

The Eagles must have chosen to go best-available, however, taking a center out of Nebraska.

The Eagles have made a blockbuster move to acquire AJ Brown and solidify their receiver room.

It was certainly anticipated that the Eagles were not making this move for just one year of play that he had left on his contract, but it was not expected that they would be able to get an extension done so quickly.

It would seem that the Eagles had some time to work on this the agreement came so quickly.

Just about 15 minutes after the trade, NFL Network's Adam Schefter reports that the Eagles and Brown have a $100 million extension in place.
