Teddy Bridgewater, Broncos. . player. 45. . .

The Eagles and Teddy Bridgewater won’t be able to right each other’s ships.

What happened to Teddy Bridgewater? Some things don’t go according to plan, huh? It’s kind of like that ‘new norm’ that Eagles fans were promised. That definitely didn’t work out as we hoped.

Who knows what Teddy’s story would have been had he not torn his ACL and done all of that damage to his knee, but he’s had some opportunities to get his career back on track. Sometimes, he’s look pretty good (2019 with the New Orleans Saints). At other times (2020 with the Carolina Panthers), he’s put some bad film together.

He’s running out of opportunities, and starting over in Philly with a team that’s trying to find its way, won’t get either side heading in the direction they’d like to go in.

Marcus Mariota, Raiders. . player. 28. . .

How many Eagles fans forgot that Marcus Mariota was still in the NFL?

Once upon a time, Marcus Mariota was the second-overall selection in 2015’s NFL Draft. He’s now on a collision course with winding up on his third team since entering the league after winning the Heisman Trophy in 2014.

He’s kind of fallen off of the radar, but he’s still in everyone’s top five or six best quarterbacks that will be available in free agency. He’s proven to be a decent playmaker that can beat you with his legs, but in all honesty, before the Eagles take a flier on him, they’d be better suited to stick with Hurts for another season.
