Yates: Quarterback Is Still A Question Mark For Eagles
While the Eagles have spent their offseason looking to improve a roster that was altered into what Chip Kelly was trying to run in Philadelphia, ESPN NFL Insider Field Yates says he's not really sure overall the team is much better than last year yet:
"Hard to say that this team is marginally better or worse than when Chip Kelly was relieved of his coaching duties, you know the proof is in the pudding come games in September, October, November, December. But I would say this, that there were some moves I liked from Philadelphia this offseason. When you examine how the Free Agency Market played out you certainly like some of the deals they were able to do with guys Zack Ertz and Lane Johnson and even Vinny Curry, a number that some people thought was a big number at the time in terms of his contract 5 years and close to 42 million dollars. Well then when you look at the possibility of being on the open market you probably would've seen that kind of coin."
Yates went on to give his question marks for the Eagles heading into the 2016 season:
"But I think, and maybe the Eagles multiple Quarterback approach confirms as much, that Quarterback is a question I'm still looking for a firm answer to. And Demarco Murray is gone so obviously Running Back is another position to keep on the radar. And then defensively the team just has to be better. That's not some sort of ground breaking news right there but they gotta be better, the secondary certainly has to be better in a tough NFC East in terms of capable Quarterbacks around them."
