THIS IS what the Eagles should have done: After snookering the Miami Dolphins out of the eighth pick in the draft last month, they should have sat on their hands, selected one of the three of four appealing options that figure to be on the board at No. 8 next Thursday - Ronnie Stanley? Ezekiel Elliott? Vernon Hargreaves? - and taken a well-deserved bow. Instead, they overdosed on testosterone and decided to show the rest of the NFL how smart they are. "We're going to invest in quarterbacks," executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman said after the Eagles swapped a batch of draft picks, among them the No. 8 pick, their first-round selection next year and a second-round pick in 2018, to Cleveland for the second pick in the draft, which they plan to use on the Los Angeles Rams' sloppy seconds - either Division I-AA product Carson Wentz or Cal's Jared Goff.

The Eagles signed offensive lineman Stefen Wisniewski to a one-year deal on Monday. The addition upgrades the team's offensive line and might even provide a starter at left guard. Matt Tobin also signed his restricted free-agent tender on Monday, bringing him back onto the roster for the start of the team's offseason program. Wisniewski, 27, was a second-round pick in 2011 out of Penn State who has started all 77 games in a five-year career with the Oakland Raiders and Jacksonville Jaguars.

When the window for negotiations opened Monday, two days before the start of free agency, Brandon Brooks said he received text messages from three Eagles offensive linemen, among others, urging him to sign with their team. Center Jason Kelce was one of the first to reach out to the free- agent guard. It shouldn't have come as a surprise. Kelce stood to benefit more than anyone. Last season's struggles on the interior of the line were, in part, of his own doing. And some of his problems were attributed to having not one but two new guards playing at his side.

SOMEDAY, we will be privy to the pictures Howie Roseman has of Miami Dolphins executive vice president of football operations Mike Tannenbaum that helped him facilitate one of the great NFL trade robberies of the salary-cap era. For now, it's enough to know that cornerback Byron Maxwell and his XXXL contract are somebody else's problem and the Eagles are picking five spots higher in the first round of next month's draft than they were three days...

THE MORE you listen to the Eagles talk, the more it seems as if Jason Peters might be the most important player on the team. At the very least, he's the most important player who wears normal-sized sleeves. That could change in a hurry, of course, because that's how it goes during the maddest month of the NFL schedule. We began the week wondering whether the $18 million in salary-cap space that we thought the Eagles had would be enough to address cornerback, safety, and the offensive line.

It's been seven years since the Eagles were active participants in the high-priced, free-agent offensive line market. They initially signed Stacy Andrews in the 2009 offseason, and while Jason Peters wasn't technically a free agent, the veteran tackle came in a trade. The Eagles were attempting to replace tackle cornerstones Tra Thomas and Jon Runyan on the fly, and while Peters ultimately became one of the team's better acquisitions over the last decade, Andrews, like his brother Shawn, flamed out. Now, the Eagles face a similar, though not as drastic, predicament on the line.

WHEN HE WAS taken fourth overall by the Eagles in 2013, Lane Johnson had a feeling the franchise saw the left tackle position in his future. He'd played it in college, and, with a talented but aging Jason Peters at left tackle, it seemed he could be a natural successor. With the news Friday that the Eagles signed Johnson, 26, to a new six-year deal that locks him up through 2021, his move to the left side of the offensive line could be nearing. "I think that's what they drafted me for," Johnson said Friday.

A lot of players who do not really belong there are going to participate in the NFL Pro Bowl on Sunday at Aloha Stadium in Hawaii. Jason Peters will not be one of them. He was selected to play in his eighth Pro Bowl, but the assortment of injuries that dogged the 6-foot-4, 328-pound left tackle throughout the 2015 season prompted him to stay away from a ridiculous game that he has played in many times before. It was a wise and no doubt easy decision by one of the greatest Eagles of all-time.

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Jason Peters doesn't know who his new head coach will be, doesn't know who will be coaching the offensive line. But if those guys have any sense, Peters will be back for an eighth season as the Eagles' left tackle at age 34, Peters said. "I want to be here. I still got gas in the tank," said Peters, who made his eighth career Pro Bowl and his sixth as an Eagle, despite being in and out of games with injuries all season. Would Peters consider moving inside to guard, where he'd have more help and spend less time trying to pass block in space against players 10 years younger?

EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. - Jeffrey Lurie ultimately will make the final decision on who is the Eagles' next head coach. But it's clear that the opinion of the Eagles locker room will factor prominently into choosing the man who will succeed Chip Kelly. The players certainly played a part in Lurie's decision to fire Kelly with one game left in the season. The Eagles owner said he had been taking the temperature of the locker room for weeks leading up to Kelly's dismissal. Lurie can't let the players influence the coaching search in so much that he aims to appease specific players.
