For good or ill, Philadelphia coach Chip Kelly has dominated the transaction wire, retooling the roster in his own image since seizing control of the personnel department in January.
*Our Roster Reset series will rank each team by the strength of their roster. *
1. Philadelphia Eagles
The Eaglesaren't satisfied with a 10-6 record and a shot at the division title. Their offseason moves were driven by a willingness to gamble on a higher ceiling, particularly with potential franchise quarterbackSam Bradford as an upgrade (perhaps quixotically so) on an increasinglyerraticNick Foles.
An already underrated front seven was bolstered by the addition of speedy linebacker Kiko Alonso, a revelation as a Bills rookie two years ago. Although the secondary should be improved with the additions of former Seahawks cornerbacks Byron Maxwell and Walter Thurmond, this is still an area that should be addressed in the draft.
»*Get Bradford healthy:* Kelly specifically targeted Bradford for his offense. We never believed the Eagles would trade up for the opportunity to draft Oregon's Marcus Mariota, but Kelly can't be confident about his aerial attack until Bradford is recovered from his second ACL and turning heads in practice. That might not happen until training camp.
»*Find Maclin's replacement:*Miles Austin wasn't signed to be a starter. The team's brass is reportedly high on 2014 third-round pick Josh Huff, but the former Oregon star managed just eight receptions as a rookie. Even if tight end Zach Ertz is featured more prominently in the passing game, wide receiver remains a need.
2. Dallas Cowboys
»*New contract for Dez:*Cowboys fans have to be bracing for an offseason tug-of-war between Bryant and the team, as trust issues seemed to develop after the sides nearly reached agreement on an extension last August. Can they find common ground by the July 15 deadline for franchise players to sign long-term deals?
3. New York Giants
»*Eli's contract:* Even though Manning bounced back with one of the best statistical seasons of his career in the first year of Ben McAdoo's offense, the Giants are not bending over backward to meet his contract demands. Is the organization comfortable allowing him to enter the season without a new deal?
»*Backup plan for Victor Cruz:* Coughlin acknowledged there is no guarantee Cruz will be ready for Week 1. Patellar tendon recoveries are notoriously more fickle than other knee surgeries. Rueben Randle closed out the season strong with back-to-back 100-yard performances, but the Giants might still opt for Cruz insurance in the draft.
4. Washington Redskins
On balance, McCloughan did a nice job of adding young legs to patch over gaping holes on a defense that finished 29th in points allowed last season.
»*RGIII's fifth-year option:* The Redskins insist nobody is giving up onRobert Griffin III, but they will also consider selecting a quarterback with the No. 5 overall pick in the draft. In other words, they no longer have any idea what to believe about Griffin's future. That makes the $16 million option for 2016 a tricky proposition.
»*Fix the O-line:* Between the swinging gates up front and Griffin's penchant for holding onto the ball, the offense won't have a chance unless the blocking is improved. Right tackle and guard should be addressed early in the draft.
