The Philadelphia Eagles made a big free-agency splash over the last two weeks. All that was missing from the first few days of the NFL’s wildest free-agent frenzy was Andy Reid sitting in a television studio, being interviewed by Jim Gray. They could’ve called it “The Decisions” because the Eagles made a lot of them.
