Another sign that Eagles are fine with their offense
It's why they cut DeSean Jackson for no reason other than it was a quote-unquote football decision.
It's why they went for a defensive player --- linebacker Marcus Smith of Louisville --- in the first round of the draft.
With a chance to select Johnny Manziel at No. 22, they instead traded down to No. 26, swapping picks with Cleveland and hauling in a third-round pick in return.
Then they drafted Smith, a pass-rushing linebacker ... a reach, according to most draft-a-nistas. Yet ...
"I think with my ability, I can be a double-digit sack guy," Smith said. "Once I get into camp and get rolling, I think I can be a double-digit sack guy. I really do."
Maybe he can.
The Eagles believe they need it, what with their offense being fine just how it is.
