I'm not particularly worried about Buckhalter. He'll be part of a rotation and at best will probably get the 3rd most touches behind Moreno and Hillis.
The Eagles offered Buckhalter zero dollars. So yes, we paid more than they were willing to.

RB stable when they let Buck go:

Westbrook getting older and more injury prone
Lorenzo Booker

Also, they gave up more for Booker than they had to acquire Buck.

Now here's an important part of that organization that you're flat out missing:

The Eagles, as you well know, avoid playing players new to the system as much as possible.
