    After seemingly sitting it out for the first day or two of free agency the Eagles tore through the last couple of days completely reshaping what new backup QB Vince Young calls the “Dream Team.”

    The Birds are in a win now mentality and that means trying to leave no holes in the roster.

    On Saturday the Eagles added top defensive tackle Cullen Jenkins, inking the free agent to five-year, $25-million deal. To make room for Jenkins the Birds shipped Broderick Bunkley to Cleveland (oops make that Denver) for a 2013 draft pick.

    So who’s in, who’s coming back and who’s seemingly out?
