When Howie Roseman emerged from his year in solitary, he could have come blinking back into the light in either of two ways - as a cautious general manager looking for stability in an unstable profession or as a once-burned gambler no longer afraid of fire. It didn't take very long to determine in which direction Roseman had been bent while he was off in a library corner doing doctoral work on what it takes to win in the NFL. He hit the ground on the move when reinstated and the movement hasn't slowed in eight months.

THERE'S AN important question the Eagles are going to have to ask themselves over the next week as they begin the process of finalizing the 53-man roster they will carry into Week 1 of the season. Do we want the best 53 for this season? Or do we want the best 53 for the future? At most spots, the answer is one and the same. But when you get down to the final few spots on the roster, there should be some serious debate about present-day utility and future potential value. Given the draft picks the Eagles have traded away over the last couple of seasons - second-, third- and fourth-rounders in 2016, a first-rounder in 2017, a third-rounder in 2018 - and their underwhelming performance in a long line of drafts (including a near-total lack of return to date on the 2014 and 2015 first-rounders)

The risk in bringing Stephen Tulloch into the Eagles nest is that Jim Schwartz will crack open and start the middle linebacker at the expense of the yet-to-hatch Jordan Hicks and the still-hatching Mychal Kendricks. Even if the 31-year-old Tulloch were to remain a backup the entire season - an unlikely scenario considering the injury history of the Eagles linebackers - his addition is another win-now move by the front office. The Eagles guaranteed $1.75 million of Tulloch's potential $3 million salary - cap space from this season that could have been rolled over into next year when their expenditures increase dramatically.

DOUG PEDERSON didn't even try to pretend the Eagles would be fine with the linebackers they had on hand, when Pederson was asked about the depth situation there Saturday, in the wake of Joe Walker's season-ending ACL tear. "Obviously something is going to have to be done," Pederson said. Sunday evening, league sources confirmed an ESPN report that the Eagles were signing 31-year-old linebacker Stephen Tulloch, who played for defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz in Tennessee and Detroit.

Michael Vick has become the Eagles' model for successful rehabilitation projects, but what Doug Pederson, Howie Roseman, and Jeffrey Lurie have failed to put into the proper context is that Andy Reid took that gamble 10 years into his tenure as Eagles coach, and only as his position atop the team became more tenuous. Vick, for the most part, was a model citizen and he even gave the Eagles a few hurrahs. But in the end he flamed out. Reid took a similar risk in drafting DeSean Jackson, but, again, it was only late into his term.

Joe Douglas called a top Baltimore Ravens executive in the fall of 2007 about a tall quarterback at Delaware who was not yet viewed as a top NFL draft prospect. Douglas, then a Northeast area scout for the Ravens and now the Eagles' vice president of player personnel, was enthralled by Joe Flacco. He attended Flacco's games and practices, watched film, and notified Ravens assistant general manager Eric DeCosta about the Audubon native. "He had an enthusiasm in his voice that, knowing Joe, he's not the type of guy who is going to get real excited about anything," DeCosta said.

Sam Bradford says the right things and smiles the right smiles at the right moments, but it's hard to believe that he's not wondering what he has gotten himself into. He took all that criticism back in April when, after the Eagles made two trades to move up to draft Carson Wentz, he requested that they in turn trade him. He was branded a selfish coward, fearful of competing against the new hotshot QB. But the Eagles' attempt to walk the line between wholesale rebuilding and all-out pursuit of a playoff berth this season was bound to lead to the mess that's before them now, and it's looking more and more as if Bradford's instincts to find a better situation for him and his career were correct.

DOUG PEDERSON stepped up to the microphone at the NovaCare Complex on Tuesday with a couple of pages ripped from the Andy Reid playbook. First he ducked the most anticipated answer of the day, the apparent timeline discrepancy over Lane Johnson's account of when he informed team officials of his PED violation and when the coach learned of it. Then, in addressing the trade for Dorial Green-Beckham, a talented athlete with a troubled past, he conjured the...

The trade for Dorial Green-Beckham has possible upside for the Eagles, who gave up little in return, and for the receiver, who was likely to be released after falling out of favor with the Titans. But there is the potential for greater downside because of what the deal suggests about the state of the Eagles receivers, in particular one former first-round pick. Howie Roseman said the team had been in the market for receivers for weeks, but it was no coincidence that Tuesday's swap came on the heels of Thursday's preseason opener.
