The Philadelphia Eagles enter the 2014 free agency period having some defined needs. There are some big names in place at safety, and with Darrelle Revis likely on his way out of Tampa Bay, it puts perhaps the best cornerback on the market. The Eagles have certainly never been shy about spending big in free agency before. Will that trend continue this year? We'll see.

Let's take a look at the fiv biggest free agent signings in Eagles history.

Jon Runyan was a great snag by the Philadelphia Eagles at a bargain price at the time. He came right in and held down the fort at the tackle position for many years to come, as he was one of the premier offensive lineman in the game.

Jevon Kearse, aka "The Freak," came from the Tennessee Titans organization as perhaps the top pass rusher in football at the time. While he was injured far more than the Eagles liked, he was one of the main players who led a Super Bowl charge for the club in his first season here.

Troy Vincent came to the Eagles organization right in his prime. He and Bobby Taylor formed perhaps the best cornerback duo in football as two big, press corners who made life miserable for the opposition. The Eagles struck gold with Vincent.

Nnamdi Asomugha was known as one of the premier corners in football when he came to Philadelphia. However, not when he left. What seemed like a phenomenal signing at the time ended up being a disaster, as Asomugha was cut after only two seasons with the club.

The Philadelphia Eagles made a huge splash when they acquired Terrell Owens in March of 2004. He was perhaps the top receiver in football, and it showed. Before their blowup, he and Donovan McNabb formed a dynamic duo that vaulted the Eagles to the Super Bowl in Owens' first season with Philly.
