If you told me the Philadelphia Eagles would come out of this off-season with the following additions to the team:

– DT Jordan Davis
– LB Nakobe Dean
– WR A.J. Brown
– C Cam Jurgens
– WR Zach Pascal
– EDGE Haason Reddick
– LB Kyzir White

I probably would have laughed in your face.

 

The Dead Cap Situation

When the Eagles started last season with over $63 million in dead cap. The worst was expected following the 4-11-1 season. Surprisingly they still managed to make their way to a meaningless Week 18 matchup and into the playoff picture. It didn’t last long, but it gave us expectations for this season. 

 

Knowing the cap hits from former QB1 Carson Wentz and WR DeSean Jackson only lasted the one year. The big moves were coming, it was just a matter of how well the 2021 roster could perform. 

The biggest needs that were visible at the end of the Eagles season were WR depth, a revamped LB core and some major upgrades in the secondary. Bringing back Anthony Harris was a step in the right direction, but losing Steven Nelson was another step back.

 

Now most of these issues have had some form of solution. With the additions of A.J. Brown and Zach Pascal to the receiving core, Hurts will have more than DeVonta Smith getting open down field. Coming into 2022 the LB position is filled with some interesting new faces. Adding Kyzir White, Nakobe Dean & Haason Reddick to the roster were ideal moves. For a team that was running Genard Avery and Alex Singleton as their starting LB’s, things are changing in Philly.

But Wait There’s More!

You’d think after the amount of moves made, the Eagles would’ve rode off into the sunset and addressed the rest of the roster issues in the 2023 Draft with 2 first round picks? Well, today’s addition was another big move by Howie Roseman. With James Bradberry being signed to a 1-year $10 million deal after being cut by the New York Giants.

 

On paper, this Eagles team seems to be an upgrade in the Safety department away from being a real problem for the NFL. With one of the easiest schedules in the league, expect the Eagles to be vying for more than the 7th seed.
