Here are two names that Philadelphia Eagles fans should know fairly well.

4. Gareon Conley

Here’s a former first-round selection of what was then the Oakland Raiders in 2017. He’s since spent some time with the Houston Texans, but like the first three names on this list, Gareon Conley has to be seen as an upgrade over everything the Eagles currently have outside of Big Play Slay.

5. D.J. Hayden

Here’s someone who plays the game correctly. You can make the argument that Conley, in some ways, was D.J. Hayden‘s replacement. On December 3rd of 2016, the Raiders placed the latter on the team’s IR (injured reserve), and he never played a down for the team again.

Since then, he’s seen two more locker rooms, the Detroit Lions, where he was a teammate of Darius Slay’s for a season, and the Jacksonville Jaguars. He’s a nice option that could start until the Birds have a young guy they feel comfortable starting (if they don’t have one already).
