The Philadelphia Eagles signed two more free agents today, signing former Pro Bowl running back Ronnie Brown and offensive tackle Ryan Harris to one year deals. Ronnie Brown had 734 yards and 5 touchdowns last year, but his yards per rush was at a career low 3.7. Ryan Harris has played in 46 games in his career with 34 starts. If his name sounds familiar, yes, he was the guy on MTV’s True Life show way back when.
Quick thoughts: Harris is a veteran lineman who could probably push for a starting spot, a nice solid depth move. Ronnie Brown might not get a lot of touches unless Shady McCoy gets hurt, but is a quality veteran backup who can also catch the ball out of the backfield. Andy Reid also loved the wildcat and who’s better to run the wildcat than Ronnie Brown?
In a shocking move, Nnamdi Asomugha is not a Jet, or a Cowboy, or a Niner, but a Philadelphia Eagle. Asomugha signed on the dotted line for five years, 60 million dollars, with 25 million guaranteed. The Eagles were rumored to be interested in Asomugha while the lockout was going on, but nothing was heard from them once the lockout was lifted. Rumors circulated that the Jets and Cowboys were creating cap space for a run at Asomugha, but the Eagles swooped in (I know, I’m better than that) and got a guy who’s arguably the best corner in the league. (Him or Revis, you can’t go wrong.) With the signing of Nnamdi, along with Asante Samuel and Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, the Eagles have solidified a defense that was historically bad in the red zone last season. It remains to be seen if the Eagles plan on keeping all three or if they would work out a trade involving Asante Samuel.
Who wants to go to Dallas anyway?
