Report: Eagles interested in signing Chandler Jones

The Eagles need to make some major moves this offseason to help improve their disappointing pass rush from last season.

Making a move for one of the top pass rushers on the market would certainly help.

According to a report from NFL insider Jordan Schultz the Eagles are one of two teams interested in edge rusher Chandler Jones, one of the most consistent pass rushers expected to be available next week when free agency begins.

The Buffalo Bills are reportedly the other team in on potentially signing Jones.

Jones has been one of the most consistent pass rushers in the game over the last eight years, finishing with double-digit sacks in seven of those seasons. He totaled 10.5 sacks last season in 15 games, and despite now being 32-years old, hasn’t shown any real signs of slowing down. His age could be an issue, however, as the Eagles seem unlikely to hand out big money to an older free agent. The Eagles showing interest could be a sign that Jones is willing to take a one-or-two year deal, but that seems unlikely.

Still, Jones might be the best option on the market when it comes to a sure thing, considering his consistent production. Jones’ age is going to play a factor in the money he gets, which could help the Eagles sign him. He isn’t a long-term option but would absolutely be an impact edge rusher opposing offensive lines have to worry about.

A signing of Jones would help the line but would almost certainly not be their only move. The chances the Eagles draft an edge rusher in the first round are extremely high, considering where they pick (No. 15, 16 and 19) and the players most likely to be on the board when they go on the clock.

The Eagles enter free agency, which begins March 16th, with around $20 million to spend.

If he's smart anyway and the Bills are interested then that's where he will go. Hate to say it but for an older player that is the move to make right now.
