The Eagles Offer Tenders to Three

The Eagles have offered one year tenders to reciever Hank Baskett, guard Nick Cole, and linebacker Tank Daniels.
Baskett is the only one of the three that I think the Eagles can let go and not miss anything. Although he had career highs in reception and yards, Jason Avant is totally capable of doing what Hank does. Baskett does have height, which is a luxury for a receiver, however, beyond that there is nothing particulary special. But, with all that being said, he is still so much better than Greg Lewis.

Nick Cole took over for an injured Max Jean-Gilles who took over for an AWOL Shawn Andrews and played well the last four games of the season through the playoffs. He adds need depth on a line that got very shallow towards the end of the year and may be needed in case Andrews does not come back.

Daniels was picked up after the Giants cut him and became a good special teams player. I am not surprised so much that the Eagles offered him a tender as that they haven't cut Omar Gaither. The Eagles have so many young linebackers that someone will have to go at some point and I expect Daniels to find more time on the field in the 2009 season.
