Eagles Free Agency 2012: Philly Needs Help At Inside Linebacker

Free agency comes at 4 p.m. ET on Tuesday and teams will soon be able to scour the market to bring in talented veterans to help them push for the playoffs in 2012. The Philadelphia Eagles are lucky enough to not have any big talent leaving town, especially since they placed the franchise tag on wide receiver DeSean Jackson, but that doesn't mean that they won't be bringing anybody in.

The Eagles need help at the linebacker position badly, especially inside linebacker. There are a handful of talented middle linebackers in this year's free agency class, including NFL leading tackler and potential former division rival London Fletcher. Other inside linebackers that the Eagles could have an eye on are Dan Connor and Curtis Lofton.

The Eagles have a ton of talent and they were massive underachievers through the beginning and middle of the 2011 season. However, they finished the year on a four-game winning streak. If they can build off of that, they can easily take the NFC East, even over the defending Super Bowl champion New York Giants.
