In an (unsuccessful) attempt to curb all the illegal tampering that goes on before free agency, the NFL has decided to designate a window for legal tampering for the seventh year in a row. Actual NFL free agency does not officially begin until Wednesday, March 13 at 4:00 PM ET, but a “negotiating period” or “legal tampering period” as it’s come to be known begins today at noon.Here are the important things to know regarding this 2-day negotiating window:鈥?Agents can negotiate numbers Womens Harold Carmichael Jersey , but not actually officially sign a deal (See: Frank Gore)鈥?Teams can talk to agents, not directly with players鈥?Players can’t visit teams (except their own)鈥?Only applies to unrestricted free agents, not restricted free agents or exclusive-rights free agents鈥?Starts today at 12:00 PM ET and ends when the new league year officially starts on Wednesday at 4:00 PM ETThe following Philadelphia Eagles players can begin negotiating with other teams (through their representation) at noon today since they’re set to be unrestricted free agents:Nick FolesRonald DarbyJordan HicksJay AjayiGolden TateHaloti NgataChance WarmackMike WallaceCorey GrahamDarren SprolesRichard RodgersJordan MatthewsLaRoy ReynoldsD.J.

Now it’s time to see how the so-called “experts” have graded the selection. Draft grades are hardly the ultimate determination of whether a pick is actually good or not Wilbert Montgomery Jersey , but it’s still interesting to see what non-Eagles fans are saying about the selection. But before we do that, let’s look at how Eagles fans reacted to the pick here at Bleeding Green Nation. With just under 6,000 votes cast, 88% of Eagles fans gave the Dillard selection either an “A” or “B” grade.This looks about right to me. I was thinking the Eagles deserve a “B+” or “A-” grade for drafting Dillard. I’ll stick with “B+” as my grade.Some things I do like about the Dillard pick:The Eagles invested in a long-term replacement for Jason Peters, who turned 37 in January and is likely playing his last season.The Eagles aren’t merely counting on Halapoulivaati Vaitai or Jordan Mailata to be their Peters replacement. Big V is a free agent after this year and he could be traded this offseason. He’s proven to be a capable swing tackle but he’s not an ideal long-term starter. Mailata’s potential is incredibly intriguing but the Eagles would be foolish to merely count on a dude who didn’t play football until last summer to replace JP any time soon. The Eagles prioritized protecting Carson Wentz. Dillard is one of the best pass protecting linemen in the draft. It’s smart to do what it takes to help No. 11 stay healthy.Dillard doesn’t have to start right away. The Eagles can ease him into the lineup so they’re not counting on a rookie to immediately play at left tackle. Being around both Eagles offensive line coach Jeff Stoutland and Peters should do wonders for Dillard’s development. The Eagles won Super Bowl LII in part due to how much they invested in the trenches. It’s smart to continue to invest in those areas. Drafting an offensive lineman can be like eating your vegetables: it’s not the most exciting part of your meal but it’s ultimately good for your health. The Eagles still have two Round 2 picks despite trading up.Some things I don’t like about the Dillard pick:The Eagles only have four more selections in the 2019 NFL Draft after giving up fourth and sixth round selections to move up from No. 25 to No. 22. It’s entirely possible they’ll trade down and/or trade players to get more picks. Until then, there’s a cap on what there is to look forward to.Dillard turns 24 in October. That’s on the older side for a rookie. For context http://www.eagleslockerroom.com/authentic-wes-hopkins-jersey , 2017 draft picks Derek Barnett and Sidney Jones are still only 22 years old. Dillard needs to develop as a run blocker. (Then again, the Eagles are always going to pass a lot more than they run.)Dillard has a finesse style. Some view him as “soft.”Doesn’t necessarily help the team win games in 2019, although he could be an important backup if Vaitai is traded and Peters continues to deal with injury issues. Lack of versatility. Admittedly doesn’t have much experience outside of left tackle.Now for more hot takes and draft grades from “experts” around the web.SB Nation (B-)CBS Sports (B-)Sports Illustrated (B)The Athletic (B+ and B)Bleacher Report (B+)The Ringer (A-) NFL.com (A)USA Today (A+)
