Baxter: Jim Schwartz Is Eagles Best Offseason Move
The Philadelphia Eagles have made a plethora of moves this offseason from trading away big contracts to free agent signings that address needs on offense and defense. But according to Bleacher Report's NFL Columnist Baxter Russell the best move the Eagles made this offseason was the hire of new Defensive Coordinator Jim Schwartz:
"The best move the Eagles made in the offseason was getting Jim Schwartz, I dont think there is any question about that. We've heard him say dont hold me to playing a 4-3 or 3-4 defense, what I'm going to play is attack."
Baxter went on to elaborate:
"When last we saw Jim Schwartz coaching a defense it wasn't shabby: 4th in the league (overall), 11th against the run, 54 sacks, I think 30 takeaways for the Buffalo Bills in 2014"
