4. Theo Riddick

Speaking of running backs still available due to dealing with an injury all of 2019, Theo Riddick seems like another player who will eventually sign with a team as a result of being in need of help at the position due to an injury.

After spending six seasons with the Detroit Lions, Riddick was released in 2019 before eventually signing with the Denver Broncos, but unfortunately would fail to take a single snap with the team on offense after suffering a shoulder injury before the start of last season.

Even though Riddick has proven to be more valuable in the passing game throughout his career, this doesn’t necessarily mean Philadelphia should rule out the possibility of bringing him on board.

With the Eagles hoping to extend their playoff streak in 2020 to four seasons in a row, as long as Riddick would be able to find a way to contribute while taking unnecessary pressure off Carson Wentz under center, this is all that really matters the most.

Signing a veteran who will handle more carries may seem like the better option for the Eagles on offense, but also Riddick could give Philadelphia a similar advantage like Detroit had all those years.
