The Philadelphia Eagles know this probably better than anyone else.
Despite the frustration that injuries and inconsistent play can bring, Eagles fans have a ton of reasons to be excited about 2020. They won a division title with a makeshift roster. Now, they get some of the guys they want back, and they can give walking papers to some of the guys they don’t want.
