Here’s what the Philadelphia Eagles’ initial 53-man roster might look like.
The Philadelphia Eagles had a tall task this offseason. After a tumultuous 2020 that felt more like a soap opera than a football season, the Birds were forced to make major personnel changes, both on the field and off of it.
No matter what way you phrase it, the Eagles are currently undergoing a rebuild. The Wentz-Pederson era is behind us, and fans can finally move on and look towards the future.
Regardless of how this team performs, the 2021 season is far from a throwaway. For the first time in a while, there is a plethora of young talent on the team and while unproven, this season will be crucial in the evaluation process for these young players.
Jalen Hurts, Jalen Reagor and DeVonta Smith are all just 22 years old. Miles Sanders isn’t far behind at 24.
Ever since the Eagles became ‘contenders’ in 2017, they’ve emphasized playing the veterans and trying to maximize their Super Bowl window. 2021 will be a complete reversal of this attitude.
Training camp is right around the corner and after that, the 53-man roster will be set for the upcoming season. Here’s a prediction of what this initial roster may shape up to be.
