I know they got rid of a lot of salary between redoing Vick's deal, and cutting Nnamdi, Jenkins, Babin and so on, but how do they still have so much space? I feel like they've made a few decent signings name-wise this offseason already. Are they just handing out big signing bonuses, or are they taking discounts to play there? Or maybe they haven't done as much as I'm think they have.

I'm not really worried about Cleveland as I think he's going to want to go to a team where he'll be a surefire starter. I think the Eagles are kind of in the same boat, Barwin will sure start, and Graham is pretty solid himself. Guess we'll see, but if the money is close, Saints provide a better chance to win a championship and a better chance for him to start, thus the best chance to make bank on his final big deal when he hits FA as a 28 or 29 year old.

And our O line will have a different player at one of the tackle spots. Previous success/failure does not guarantee the same in the future. If LT becomes a turnstile we turn from an offensive based team to a shite based team. We were also using a defensive scheme that did not suite our personel. You take whoever you feel will be the best in player regardless of position.

What are state and local taxes like in Philly/PA? In other words, does Philly have to pay more to guarantee more takehome pay? Players pay attention to that stuff these days... unless the franchise is so unbelievable that it doesn't matter i.e. The Yankees (which I don't think applies to the current Eagles).
