ESPN Insider: Keeping Wisniewski was a Good Move by Eagles
The 2017 free agency period may have been filled with some higher profile deals for the Philadelphia Eagles, as the team lost high-profile players like Alshon Jeffery, Torrey Smith and Chris Long.
But despite the adding some high-profile players, the Eagles did manage to bring make some under-the-radar moves, one of the most notable being resigning lineman Stefen Wisniewski.
And while while he might not start, his versatility and price makes ESPN Insider Mike Sando think this was a solid move for the Eagles.
In his story ranking the value of free agency signings, Sando put Wisniewski in the “good” category.
Wisniewski has starting experience at all three interior line spots and has played well enough to factor as a potential starter in 2017. Philly didn’t have to overpay to keep him. Their bargain-basement deal for Chance Warmack was another under-the-radar move that could pay off as the Eagles try to stabilize their line.
Sando seems to think the Wisnieski and Chance Warmack were good value for the Eagles, both guys who have starting experience. Wisniewski, who signed a three year contract worth $8 million, and has played both guard and center.
In 2016, Wisniewski played in all 16 games, starting six at left guard.
