1. Golden Tate, WR
Golden Tate joined the Eagles midway through last season. At the trade deadline, the Eagles sent a third-round pick to the Detroit Lions for Tate. Seeing as though the Eagles needed a speedy wideout, rather than a slot receiver, the move didn’t make too much sense at the time. As it turns out, Tate was not going to be the difference-maker on the Eagles offense that they thought he would be.
Aside from his very clutch catch in the Wild Card round of the playoffs, Tate didn’t contribute a whole lot. He should have a nice demand on the Free Agency market, and we’re pretty sure the Eagles won’t make Tate a priority. Especially if Nelson Agholor is still on board getting paid $9 million for the 2019 season.
2. Mike Wallace, WR
Mike Wallace registered zero stats last season for the Eagles. Unfortunately, the veteran wideout suffered a season-ending injury early during the second week of the year. Seeing as though he contributed nothing in the preseason as well, nobody is convinced that he is worth bringing back.
Go look at the tape against the Atlanta Falcons during week one though. Wallace’s burner speed was still there. Unfortunately, Nick Foles was a bit rusty that game and overthrew Wallace for potentially two would-be touchdowns. If Wallace is willing to take a cheap one-year deal for the Eagles to come back and play with Carson Wentz (he probably would), then the Eagles should strongly consider it as they need somebody to stretch the field badly.
