He has great character, great leadership.

"That [quarterback] room is exactly what we're looking for. We have a franchise quarterback, we have a Super Bowl MVP, and we have a young quarterback that we're excited about".

Wentz, of course, is the franchise quarterback.

Roseman declined to provide an updated timetable for Wentz's return.

"We want to continue to be in a position to get better", Roseman said. Graham, who will turn 30 in April, led the Eagles in sacks (9.5) and tackles for losses (16). We've got to find creative ways to get better.

"There's no harder worker than Carson, no more determined person than Carson Wentz". He took over the defensive play-calling chores when Hicks went down.

There's also a sentiment that Pro Bowl left tackle Jason Peters, who will cost $10.6 million against the cap, won't be back.

The Eagles did not have any given to them this year.

Jones' retirement opens up nearly $1.9 million of salary cap space for the Eagles, who were $9 million over the cap.

Roseman reiterated that there's no cause for alarm due to the team reportedly having less salary cap flexibility than anyone else in the league and facing the departure of as many as 14 players due to free agency. It could require clearing $20 million of more to keep that core in place.

"Right now, timetable is not where we're at", Roseman said.

Fact is, the Eagles are going to have to make some very tough decisions. It's not like we can just bring the band back together and expect the same results.

On top of that, the Eagles may actually add another quarterback this season, as per coach Doug Pederson's belief that the team would be best served drafting a quarterback every two years "to keep the pipeline going". "It wasn't the time".

"Being able to trade out that field position is crucial", Pederson said, per the Philadelphia Daily News' Mike Sielski. So you balance can this player help us for a period of time versus the unknown, am I going to get a fourth a fifth?

"When you look at sitting at 32, and I've had this conversation with teams that are used to drafting late, I think you've got to be multiple". If there is a guy that we rate as a difference-maker - we will never have 32 guys in our first round grades - if we see a guy there that can make a difference, and is a first-round talent, we won't hesitate to take that guy. [Executive vice president of football operations] Howie [Roseman] just mentioned we'd love to have everybody back, but we know the nature of the business. "But, yeah, we'll talk about it before or if and when that time comes".

By contrast, numerous teams with the least cap space are frequently making postseason trips, mainly because they have elite quarterbacks who cover up blemishes.
