Ryans, scheduled to earn $6.8 million in 2014, probably won't even be asked to take a pay cut, the paper said.
"As much as they need Ryans lining the defense up and making stops against the run, they need his leadership perhaps even more," the paper continued. "Ryans commands the most respect in the Eagles locker room and 'forcing' him to take a pay cut would not go over well with the other players."

The Eagles DST could be a surprise unit if they play all year like they did to close the 2013 season. The Eagles scored double digits in Fantasy points in eight of their final 10 games. By comparison, the Eagles had just two games in double digits in their first six outings. They finished the year No. 18 in Fantasy points, so there's room to improve, and they had 19 interceptions, 37 sacks, 12 fumble recoveries, two safeties and two defensive touchdowns. You don't have to draft the Eagles as a No. 1 Fantasy option this year, but if they open the season playing like they did to end 2013 then add them off waivers, especially as a potential bye-week replacement.
