If you're looking for a strong sign that the Philadelphia Eagles are awaiting major regime changes before making any personnel decisions regarding the 2013 roster, there's this: Philadelphia still isn't negotiating with any of its impending unrestricted free agents, according to CSN Philly's Reuben Frank.

That includes embattled but talented starting cornerback Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie, who has been very inconsistent and is one of the major question marks attached to the roster as a disappointing season comes to a close. 

"This isn't unprecedented," wrote Frank, "but is unusual for an Eagles team that historically has looked to re-sign its top young players before they reach free agency and in many cases several years before their contracts expire."

Other Eagles slated to become UFAs in March: King Dunlap, Derek Landri, Akeem Jordan, Jon Dorenbos, Darryl Tapp, Jake Scott and Colt Anderson.
