The Philadelphia Eagles have a crucial offseason ahead of them. This three-step offseason plan will point the team in the right direction for the 2020 season.
Vice president and general manager Howie Roseman and the Philadelphia Eagles are faced with one of their most important offseasons in recent memory. The team has steadily declined in each season that has followed their Super Bowl win, and it’s up to Roseman to recognize that and make the necessary changes.
Since the championship season, Philadelphia has put together two straight 9-7 seasons, advancing to the Divisional Round of the NFC Playoffs last season and the Wildcard Round this year. For the most part, the roster remained intact over that stretch but remained flawed and aging. Roster changes are on the horizon this offseason.
Even though the team is in the process of filling a number of coaching staff vacancies including offensive coordinator, the roster is still a significant concern as the future of the team is in question. While coach Doug Pederson continues his search, the front office should have its sights set on putting together a championship-caliber roster for 2020 and beyond.
Jimmy Kempski of the Philly Voice was among several that reported that this team is projected to have 10 picks in the 2020 NFL Draft. According to Spotrac, they’re also projected to have just over $40 million in cap space ahead of the 2020 offseason. The expectation is that Roseman will be active with an emphasis on getting younger and faster.
Roseman has a unique task at hand. He needs to revamp a roster that is full of significant contributors to the city’s first and only Super Bowl victory. It’s one tall task, which means he will need all the help that he can get.
With that being said, here is a three-step offseason plan for the Eagles and their front office to get the team on the path to success for the 2020 season.
