Remember, the Philadelphia Eagles don’t have a ton of money to spend.

If you hang out with Inside The Iggles often (and thank you if you do), you’ve seen us make mention of the term “balling on a budget” in relation to the Philadelphia Eagles on more than one occasion. This team has needs from a roster standpoint, and they don’t have a lot of coins to throw in the direction of available free agents. There is good news though.

The 2021 NFL Draft is coming, and the third wave of free agency is upon us. Also, seeing as how most teams are looking to see what they can get in the selection meeting before they begin filling out their roster with more veterans, there’s a chance that Philadelphia could get some really good veterans at a bargain.

The Birds aren’t getting Richard Sherman, Jadeveon Clowney, Mitchell Schwartz, or Alejandro Villanueva. They may be out of the market for some of the guys at the second-tier of available options as well.

Still, there are some available veterans who are interesting, and depending on how money is distributed, vice president and general manager Howie Roseman might be able to wave the magic wand one more time. With that being said, here are five potentially inexpensive veterans that Philly could target and five more they’ll need to stay away from.
