PHILADELPHIA (AP) — With one big move after another over two wild days, the Philadelphia Eagles became strong favorites to reach the Super Bowl.
Trading Kevin Kolb was expected. Signing Pro Bowl defensive end Jason Babin was no surprise. Even getting two-time Pro Bowl quarterback Vince Young to back up Michael Vick hardly turned heads.
But the stunner came when the defending NFC East champions swooped in from nowhere and landed Nnamdi Asomugha, the biggest prize on the NFL's free-agent market.
The two-time All-Pro cornerback was seemingly headed elsewhere — the New York Jets courted him aggressively — before the Eagles quietly moved in and signed him to a $60 million, five-year deal on Friday.
No one anticipated that being the major announcement when general manager Howie Roseman and coach Andy Reid took the podium shortly after teams were allowed to officially announce free-agent signings at 6 p.m.
"This has been fast and furious, but good things have come out of it," Reid said. "I mentioned to you before that I thought Howie had a great plan for free agency and trades, so this is what we have here so far and it's a pretty good list."
