The Philadelphia Eagles have made some good moves in Free Agency, and they are looking to add even more talent through the NFL draft. The Eagles had a decent year in Doug Pederson's first year as head coach, as they finished 7-9. With their QB of the future in Carson Wentz and a defense that is on the rise and getting younger, will the Eagles make the Nfc East even more interesting? From the look of it, they will be a force to be reckoned with.

The Eagles are making sure they will be a powerful offense next season. They already have a QB in Carson Wentz, who performed fairly well in his rookie season. The Eagles had problems in their receiving corps, as many of their top receivers couldn't hold onto the ball. Jordan Matthews, their top receiver, had six drops last season. They made sure to tend to those needs, as they signed WR Alshon Jeffrey to a one-year deal worth $14 million.

Jeffrey had a down year last season, but he is one of those possession receivers the Eagles need. They also signed Torrey Smith, who played for the 49ers last season. Torrey is more of a speed threat who will most likely be put in the slot position.

The Eagles are also looking to the draft to add some pieces. They had Florida State running back Dalvin Cook in for a meeting last week, as they might need to improve at the running back spot.

They also look interested in Clemson standout Mike Williams and LSU running back Leonard Fournette. The Eagles offense would benefit from having a go-to back in their offense, as Darren Sproles is getting old, and Ryan Matthews isn't always healthy. Adding another receiver could help Wentz progress, as confidence in his receivers will generate personal and team success.

Division domination

The Eagles are lucky to be in the NFC East.

That division is pretty up and down, where you can make the playoffs being an 8-8 team. This past season was different, as the Cowboys won the division with a 13-3 record. Many of the teams are losing talent rather than signing it, which might benefit Philadelphia. The Giants released Victor Cruz and Rashad Jennings, and they are in need of a running back. The Cowboys let a lot of defensive talent go, specifically in the defensive backs slot.

With Brandon Carr and Morris Claiborne gone, the Cowboys will be vulnerable to the passing game. The Redskins don't know if Kirk Cousins will play for them next season, as the Redskins are looking very weak on the offensive side. The Eagles are returning a lot of talent on both sides, and with the division struggling in free agency the Eagles are looking like the early favorites.

The fans of Philly should be excited about their team's season.

The offense is coming together, the defense will be solid, and the competition isn't looking so good. It's very early in the offseason, but the Eagles are making big moves. Look for them to challenge the teams in the NFC East.
