3. Sign Taylor Gabriel.
The final move Philadelphia should look into would be a low-risk, high-reward signing. Former Chicago Bears receiver Taylor Gabriel is still available, and the dynamic playmaker should intrigue the Eagles on a short-term deal.
Gabriel was limited to nine games because of injuries last season with the Bears, recording only 353 yards and four touchdowns on 29 receptions. In that time, Anthony Miller emerged as an asset for the Bears, ultimately pushing the team to release Gabriel early during the 2020 offseason.
The veteran receiver showed flashes with both the Bears and Atlanta Falcons, and the Eagles would be wise to take a chance on Gabriel this year. His ability to make plays in the open field would give the team a skill set not currently on the roster. Sure, Jackson can outrun any defense, but Gabriel is the type of receiver you just get the ball to and watch him work.
If the move doesn’t pan out, the Eagles can wipe their hands of the experiment and move on to someone else. The receiver position is thin in the Eagles organization, and Gabriel should be viewed as a potential option to add depth to an injury-riddled group.
By no means do these moves put Philadelphia’s offense among the league’s best, but they better position the team to avoid forcing picks in the 2020 NFL Draft.
