Philadelphia Eagles Strategy and Personnel 2009-02-21


Philadelphia Eagles Strategy and Personnel 2009-02-21
With quarterbacks coach Pat Shurmur taking the offensive coordinator job on Steve Spagnuolo's staff in St. Louis and defensive line coach Pete Jenkins retiring, the Eagles made several coaching moves.


James Urban, 35, will replace Shurmur as the quarterbacks coach. He spent the last two seasons as the team's offensive assistant/quality control coach. Before that, he was the assistant to the head coach for three years.

Rory Segrest, who had been the team's special teams coordinator, will replace Jenkins as the defensive line coach. Ted Daisher will take over the special teams. He spent the last two years as the special teams boss for the Cleveland Browns.

The Eagles also hired former quarterback Doug Pederson as offensive quality control coach. He had spent the last four years coaching high school football in Louisiana.

FRANCHISE PLAYER: None.

TRANSITION PLAYER: None.

UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS

--RB Correll Buckhalter had a solid season as Brian Westbrook's backup, but the Eagles probably will bring in someone younger to replace him.

--S Sean Considine was replaced last season at SS by Quintin Mikell. But he was one of the team's better special teams players. Might return in that role.

--S Brian Dawkins still is a productive player in Jim Johnson's defense and wants to finish his career with the Eagles. Probably will be back.

--OT Jon Runyan had microfracture surgery on his knee after playing hurt the entire season. Unlikely he'll be re-signed.

--TE L.J. Smith was franchised by the team last year. They won't make the same mistake twice. Definitely won't be back.

--OT Tra Thomas still is a productive LT despite his age. Eagles don't really have a successor in the wings. Probably will be re-signed.

RESTRICTED FREE AGENTS

--WR Hank Baskett's production tailed off in the second half of the season. But at 6-4, he's a big target for Donovan McNabb. Will likely be back as the team's No. 4 wideout.

--G Nick Cole replaced Max Jean-Gilles, who replaced Shawn Andrews at right guard and played well. If Eagles move Andrews to right tackle, Cole likely will be the starter inside, ahead of Jean-Gilles.

EXCLUSIVE RIGHTS FREE AGENTS: None.

PLAYERS RE-SIGNED:

--CB Joselio Hanson: Potential UFA; $21M/5 yrs, $6.4M guaranteed.

PLAYERS ACQUIRED: None.

PLAYERS LOST: None.
