Eagles’ GM cautious about overspending in free agency

The Philadelphia Eagles, like many teams, are going to be cautious with their dollars in free agency. Teams seemingly are constantly restructuring contracts to get enough room to re-sign or add new players, by being cautious they could avoid having to make those deals in the future, especially for the wrong player.

“I’d say if there was a player who was kind of in the right age group as a free agent, played an important position who we thought could be around for a long time, we would certainly be open to [a lucrative, long-term deal],” Roseman said, via CSNPhilly.com. “But you see there are fewer and fewer of those players available in free agency, so what happens is good players get great player money, pretty good players get really good player money, and then it throws around the whole structure of your roster.”

“So you have to be very careful in free agency, and I think what worked last year was based on the free-agent market,” Roseman said. “You’ve got to really make sure you’re in line with what the free agent market is and not try to force anything.”
