On the offensive side, the Eagles have three players, none of whom are currently with the team as players.

Former star running back LeSean McCoy was named as one of three backs on the team.

Over the decade, McCoy has totaled 13,923 yards from scrimmage and 85 touchdowns.

Another Eagles free agent has left the team with Ronald Darby reportedly agreeing to a new deal.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports that the cornerback will be heading to the Redskins on a one-year, $4 million deal.

Darby was a solid corner for the team in both 2017 and 2018 (when he wasn't injured), but recency bias takes it's affect and Darby was awful all of 2019, finding himself ranked among the worst in the game.

In 2019, he allowed 17 yards per reception and gave up a 117.9 passer rating when targeted.

The Eagles have had a pretty great free agency and while some fans may still be upset that the Eagles didn't overpay in a weak free agent market for receivers, the team is greatly improved everywhere on defense and hasn't lost too much other than offensive line depth on the other side of the ball.

The Eagles may only be looking for bargain deals at this point and they had one in-house to shore up.

The NFL Network's Tom Pelissero reports that the Eagles have exercised tight end Zach Ertz's 2021 option.

Last week, the Eagles made a blockbuster move to acquire cornerback Darius Slay from the Lions.

Some criticized the move claiming that Slay wasn't young enough and that Howie Roseman was not building a youth movement as he had claimed, simply ignoring the fact that he is waiting to use eight draft picks and Slay, at 29, was by far the oldest acquisition by the team.

Well, even those critics have to be in awe of Slay's new deal as announced by OverTheCap Wednesday.
