Three-time Pro Bowler Larry Warford was cut by the New Orleans Saints to save money. Could he join the Philadelphia Eagles?

This one just makes a lot of sense for the Philadelphia Eagles. A three-time Pro Bowler, Larry Warford is a proven talent in the NFL who was released by the Saints in an effort to save money and become a younger team. At 28 years old, Warford is a bit past his prime after battling a few injuries, but his talent is still as impressive as ever. His pass blocking is a bit shaky at times, but his ability to pave holes in the running game is superb.

Warford is looking for around $7 million per year. The Eagles cap situation for 2021 is unsettling, to say the least, but they do have some flexibility for 2020. They would love to roll over some of the 2020 cap space into 2021 but could get away with signing Warford to a one-year deal.

With Warford, there’s no worry about a position change or any worry about his experience. He’s a fairly safe option at right guard if he is able to stay healthy. Of course, the Eagles would run the risk of scheme fit and a couple of other obstacles, but when it’s all said and done, Warford looks to be a stellar option for the Philadelphia Eagles at this point.
