Quintin Mikell, S

Michael Vick, QB

Reggie Wells, OL

What happens: The Eagles are expected to try to retain Vick, Akers and probably Mikell, from a leadership standpoint. Very unlikely they try to keep McCray or Wells.

The following players would be restricted free agents, under last year’s rules, which said you had to have served 6 years to be unrestricted. We don’t know what the threshold for unrestricted free agency might be in a new CBA:

Stewart Bradley

Nick Cole, G/C

Omar Gaither, LB

Antoine Harris, S

Jerome Harrison, RB

Max Jean-Gilles, G

Akeem Jordan, LB

Dimitri Patterson, CB

Sav Rocca, P

Ernie Sims, LB

What happens: If they are restricted, I would expect the Eagles to tender Bradley, Harrison, Jean-Gilles, Patterson, and Rocca, at least. If any of them is unrestricted, that makes it more complicated.
