Given the number of undrafted FAs that have made the Iggles over the past 8 years, would Reid look better? Or do you think they've only done an average job there?

Good work with all this by the way. Very impressive.

i don't think the undrafted FA should count because if they liked the FA so much they'd have drafted them, however, i think andy's willingness to give FAs a real chance at making the team is an investment that pays off by encouraging future undrafted FAs to choose the birds over other teams. i think if all things are equal keeping the undrafted guy over the 5th to 7th rounder pays off in the long run.

the eagles are ranking about 3.5 on average among the 8 teams right now, so i'd say they've done a pretty good job considering these are the teams we proposed as the best drafting teams in the nfl.
