After all the maneuvering that Chip Kelly did to this point in the offseason, the Eagles roster, when healthy, should be a better team next year. The running back corps is second to none. Maxwell and Thurmond III are upgrades over Williams and Fletcher. When healthy, Bradford is a better quarterback than Nick Foles and seemingly a better fit for Chip Kelly’s offense and Kiko Alonso proved that he can be one of the top linebackers in the league.

All of these moves are great, but Chip Kelly and Company aren’t done just yet, as the Eagles roster still has some holes that need to be filled.

For starters, the Eagles lost their top receiver last season, with Jeremy Maclin signing with Kansas City. The Eagles could sign a player like Michael Crabtree, but it’s more likely the Eagles will draft a wide receiver to add to their receiving corps.

The Eagles let Nate Allen walk, leaving a hole at safety. With most of the free agent safeties off the board, the Eagles will probably turn to the draft to acquire a safety as well.

The Eagles could use reinforcements at offensive guard, corner and outside linebacker as well, but, just as before, the Eagles will likely use the draft to acquire players to fill those needs.

It has been a wild offseason for the Eagles organization and their fans, but overall, the Eagles have brought in very talented players during this period.

Health will be the biggest factor in determining how great these moves actually are, but for now, here is the grade I will give the Eagles offseason to this point:

Grade: B-
