Come February, the Philadelphia Eagles may look back at 2020 regretfully.
No one’s ever going to agree on everything. Look no further than any news related to the Philadelphia Eagles if you need any evidence of that one. Whether we’re talking about prized acquisitions or misspent draft selections, any debate among what’s considered to be one of the smartest fan bases in all of the pro sports could be an opportunity to question whether or not that statement still borders on accuracy.
Free agency came and went. Vice president and general manager Howie Roseman watched as fans and members of the media hung him an effigy after the first two rounds of the NFL Draft, but despite all of that, a solid third day earned him a reprieve. Howie’s always on the chopping block it seems, at least in the eyes of Eagles fans and some of the media, but some things are inexcusable.
From now until the day their careers end, fans will debate whether or not it was wise to take Jalen Reagor over Justin Jefferson. It was, but the debate will rage on. We can argue with one another over whether Malcolm Jenkins should have been allowed to walk. We can go toe to toe from now until the cows come home about whether or not Jadeveon Clowney should have been on this team.
None of those offseason stories made this list. Forget the extensions and the options that were exercised. Forget how money was spent and where it went. Here are the top three worst moves the Eagles made during the 2020 offseason. The debate table is open.
