Eagles' roster is changing

The Eagles began this offseason with seven unrestricted free agents. They have re-signed only one of them to this point and cornerback Joselio Hanson likely will end up being the only one.

Hanson received a 5-year, $21 million deal to be the Eagles' nickel cornerback, behind Asante Samuel and Sheldon Brown.

Four of the other six have signed, with Brian Dawkins and Correll Buckhalter both going to Denver and Tra Thomas and Sean Considine both landing in Jacksonville.

Tight end L.J. Smith remains unsigned with Atlanta and Detroit seemingly the teams most interested.

Right tackle Jon Runyan also remains unsigned, although teams are waiting to see how he recovers from microfracture surgery on his knee. It seems unlikely he is in the Eagles' plans, with the signing of free agent Stacy Andrews, although coach Andy Reid has not revealed his exact plans for Andrews.

Change is inevitable, but this Eagles team clearly will be missing some familiar faces. Quarterback Donovan McNabb is the longest-tenured Eagle with kicker David Akers behind him.
