Howie Roseman and the Eagles front office worked their magic this off season, and the Eagles went from a team who barely made playoffs, to a team that is built to win now and for a long time to come. They brought in so much young talent that it is hard for anyone to deny how special this team is.
When last years season ended, there were some very clear and major holes on the roster. It was obvious that the Eagles had to make some big moves if they wanted to establish themselves as contenders. It all started with Haason Reddick, and from there, even though we all got impatient at one point or another, Howie worked the phones and pulled some pretty impressive moves. When it came to the draft, it was encouraging to see the Eagles pick the good players for the second straight year, instead of drafting for scheme fit. They now set themselves up to have very solid replacements for Kelce and Cox when they decide to hang it up. With the AJ brown trade, they basically used that first round pick to draft AJ, and just traded a 3rd to the titans. All the players mentioned above will be under contract for The Birds until at least 2026. This new talent infused with the young core that was already in place, makes this a very exciting time to be an Eagles fan.
There is also a handful of talent that Howie brought in on one year deals that could be extended at some point this year. Players like Kyzir White, James Bradberry, Chauncey Gardner Johnson, and Zach Pascal were all brought in to push the Eagles over the top, and odds are at least two of these guys will prove they deserve an extension.
The Beauty of this whole situation, is that if Jalen Hurts doesn’t pan out to be QB1, then the Eagles have two first round picks next year to get their QB, and if he does pan out we can continue to add major talent around him. The Eagles are building something special, and they can be very special for a long time.
