Where do Philadelphia Eagles players rank among the Top 101 Free Agents in 2019?
Going over the list…
61. Jay Ajayi, RB
Jay Ajayi cracked the Top 101, but being ranked 61 doesn’t do him any favors. His low ranking may not have much to do with his actual talent, but it makes sense as to why teams would be concerned with him. He’s coming off of a broken back, and a torn ACL from last season. Before all of that, Ajayi’s knees were already a question. Don’t rule out the possibility of the Eagles getting Ajayi back on a one-year, prove-it deal for 2019.
32. Golden Tate, WR
Midway through the 2018 season, the Eagles sent a third-round pick to Detroit for Golden Tate. At the time, the trade felt like a steal, but we quickly found out that implementing Tate into the Eagles struggling offense wasn’t as easy as we thought. Just like that, Tate will be testing the market, and he could garner some substantial money as he’s still proven to be productive in an offense that knows how to use him properly.
28. Jordan Hicks, LB
Jordan Hicks‘ spot at No. 28 seems a bit generous. Nobody has ever questioned Hicks’ ability to be a solid linebacker, but his injury concerns are legitimate. It’s become evident that Hicks probably won’t finish out an entire year without suffering some sort of setback moving forward. Last year, Hicks seemed to disappear at times when healthy. Is it the system, or the player? Because when Hicks is out, Nigel Bradham, and whoever would be on the opposite side of him in the rotation would be thriving. That will be something for teams to think about.
