Nice knowing you, Stewie

The 2011 Eagles are going to look pretty different.  According to the Inquirer, the Eagles have no intention of re-signing any of their own free agents (the franchise-tagged Hostel fan notwithstanding).

That’s a lof of guys, some of whom most people assumed they would work to retain, like linebacker Stewart Bradley.  Speaking of linebackers, they better hope their draft class works out or they can land other free agents, otherwise they’re going to need Juan Castillo himself to suit up.  We will soon have an article up looking at the linebacker situation in depth, and it looks so bad it should have a NSFW warning.

And the exodus has officially begun, with safety Quintin Mikell agreeing to sign with the Rams. 

In the meantime, here is a list of the Eagles unrestricted free agents, the ones they apparently are showing the door.  

Akers, David, K
Bradley, Stewart, LB
Cole, Nick, C/OG
Gaither, Omar, LB
Harris, Antoine, CB
Harrison, Jerome, RB
Hobbs, Ellis, CB
JeanGilles, Max, OG
Jordan, Akeem, LB
McCray, Bobby DE
Mikell, Quintin, S
Patterson, Dimitri, CB
Rocca, Saverio, P
Sims, Ernie, LB  
Wells, Reggie, OG

Not only is that a lof of names, it’s a lot salary.  And with teams required to spend 99% of the salary cap in real money (not Banner dollars) this season as part of the new CBA requirements, they’re going to need every penny to fill out the roster.
