That was the sentiment from Howie Roseman during his press conference at the NFL combine.
For the first time ever the Eagles come into an off-season as the Super Bowl champion, but Howie will have a lot of tough decisions to make if the Eagles want to make a run again next season.
As far as the top stroyline in the city, aka the Nick Foles situation, Roseman seems very happy with the current quarterback situation. He also seems to be extremely high on Nate Sudfeld, as Howie mentioned his 80 percent completion percentage against the Cowboys.
Pederson went on to say that no player will be "blindsided" when it comes to getting traded.
To me it sounded like they are open for anything, and the possibility of a Foles trade is very real.
The Eagles are more than 9 million over the cap, but Howie didn't seem too concerned saying "We are not going to make decisions or going to get rid of good players because of our cap situation and that responsibility starts with me, and making sure we are able to keep guys and sign good players, and make sure we aren't doing things just because of our cap situation."
I love that.
Howie is a cap wizard, so that "$9 Million" number shouldn't concern anyone.
Pederson harped on "finding guys that fit our culture." I wouldn't expect anything less from the reigning Super Bowl Champs.
Roseman mentioned the running back, tight end, offensive line, and safety positions as ones that were deep in this 2018 draft class. He specifically mentioned defensive line as a weaker group.
Running back is interesting. Both Pederson and Roseman spoke highly of Corey Clement, but if they don't see him as an every-down back going forward, then running back could be in play come April. Jay Ajayi is entering a contract year and LeGarrette Blount is obviously a free agent, so it would make sense to add a running back at some point.
Roseman also mentioned the possibility of moving back. That would allow them to acquire more picks and save themselves a little money in the process.
The Eagles could go in a number of different directions come April, but based off of the positions that Howie mentioned, here are 3 players from each to look out for this weekend.
Derrius Guice, LSU
He would be an option at 32 or if they decided to trade out of the first round and into the early second.
Josh Adams, Notre Dame
Early mock drafts have Adams making it back to the Eagles in round 4. He is a talented back.
Bo Scarbrough, Alabama
He is an intriguing name. He's gigantic (6'2, 235) and should test very well this weekend. Early word has Bo falling to the 4th round or later. He could be the LeGarrette Blount replacement and form a nice 1-2 punch with Corey Clement going forward.
Mark Andrews, Oklahoma
Andrews, like most of the tight ends, are being mocked anywhere from the late first round all the way to the 4th round. He is a very talented tight end.
Mike Gesicki, Penn state
Same as Andrews, he has talent but it's anyone's guess where he will go.
Troy Fumagalli, Wisconsin
Fumagalli will be available for the Eagles in the 4th round. He would be a nice sleeper option and a name that fans should keep an eye on.
Offensive line: (All options for pick 32)
Kolton Miller, UCLA- Tackle
Orlando Brown, Oklahoma- Tackle
Austin Corbett- Nevada - Guard
Justin Reid, Stanford
Reid would be an option at 32.
Kyzir White, WVU
The Eagles love the West Virginia pipeline, and could grab White with one of thier 4th round picks. White had 94 tackles and 3 interceptions for the Mountaineers last season.
Jordan Whitehead, Pittsburgh
Whitehead has a current 3rd/4th round grade.
Full work out schedules:
Friday- Running backs, O lineman, and special teamers.
Saturday- Quarterbacks, wide receivers and tight ends.
Sunday- Defensive lineman and linebackers.
Monday- Defensive backs.
Keep an eye out for the linebacker and wide receiver groups as well. Like I mentioned the Eagles could go in any direction.
