Philadelphia Eagles defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz said the team's defense for 2016 hasn't been determined yet. Former head coach Chip Kelly changed to a 3-4 defensive scheme and forced many players to play out of position. "I think you make a mistake if you predetermine, go in with a scheme and say this is what we're going to do scheme-wise. I think the best system is to find out what the players do the best," Schwartz said.

Philadelphia Eagles DE Fletcher Cox has been undergoing contract discussions with the team, which has made him a priority this offseason. According to two different people familiar with the negotiations, Cox could end up with a deal that has over $50 million in guaranteed money, and one said the smart bet is to take the over.

Fantasy Tip: Sam Bradford will not receive the Eagles' franchise tag, so Philadelphia could very well be planning to move on from Bradford after one year. Bringing back Foles seems puzzling, though, as he didn't really work out in his first stint with the Eagles and did nothing productive with the Rams either. Neither Bradford nor Foles should be viewed as a starting fantasy quarterback right now.

Fantasy Tip: The Eagles are also expected to inquire about Nick Foles, so Bradford could be on his way out of Philadlephia, but that's not a sure thing just yet. If Foles does return to the city of brothrly love, he still wouldn’t be in the QB1 coversation.

Fantasy Tip: Cooper had just 21 catches for 327 yards and two touchdowns in 2015. He'll likely land somewhere else as a third or fourth receiver. His fantasy value will depend on where he winds up, but don't expect him to be much more than a WR4 or 5 moving forward.

Philadelphia Eagles impending free-agent QB Sam Bradford could have the franchise tag placed on him this offseason, but the team hasn't made a decision yet. If the Eagles use the franchise tag on Bradford, they will need to pay him about $20 million in 2016 once he signs the contract.
Fantasy Tip: Bradford is a shaky QB2 in fantasy.

Fantasy Tip: Reports previously said that new head coach Doug Pederson was interested in bringing back Foles, but for now, it remains unclear who will be under center for the Eagles in 2016.

Los Angeles Rams QB Nick Foles could be an option for the Philadelphia Eagles this offseason because head coach Doug Pederson drafted them when they were both with Philadelphia and is interested in Foles, according to sources.
Fantasy Tip: Foles finished the season as a backup after being the starting quarterback back for most of the season. Foles did not have a lot of success when he did play in 2015 and probably would not be more than a backup option in most fantasy leagues if he won a starting job.

Fantasy Tip: Bradford probably will hit free agency this offseason and should have a chance to find a starting job with a team. Bradford played well at times this season but probably would be a backup option in most fantasy leagues next season.

Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray is guaranteed $7 million in 2016, and the Eagles would take a $13 million salary cap hit if they were to release him before June 1, which makes Murray unlikely to be cut. Murray would likely have to take a pay cut to be traded.
Fantasy Tip: A tumultuous season in 2015 under Chip Kelly made Murray a huge first-round fantasy disappointment. He's likely to share touches with Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles again, so don't expect anything more than low-end RB2 numbers under a new coaching staff, to boot.

Philadelphia Eagles head coach Doug Pederson listed finding a "young quarterback" as one of the steps necessary for team to have success, which could mean QB Sam Bradford is not in the team's plans moving forward.
Fantasy Tip: It continues to sound like Bradford could be on the way out of Philadelphia, and if he leaves, it is possible that the Eagles will draft a quarterback early in the 2016 NFL Draft.

Updating previous reports, Philadelphia Eagles RB DeMarco Murray said he is committed to the Eagles despite rumors that there may be dissension between Murray and Philadelphia and despite a tweet by Dallas Cowboys WR Dez Bryant telling Murray to return to the Cowboys.
Fantasy Tip: Much can be made of nothing when it comes to the NFL offseason, and perhaps this is one of those cases. If Murray does indeed stay with the Eagles, he'll still be splitting touches with Ryan Mathews and Darren Sproles, but he could also see more success under new head coach Doug Pederson and in a less complicated offensive system.
