The Eagles need to move on from Nate Herbig and Jason Croom.

There isn’t much of a need for dissection or a ton of thought here. The Eagles expect Isaac Seumalo to return from injury in 2022 (more on that in a second). He’s never made a Pro Bowl. He’s never been voted All-Pro, but it’s easy to get overlooked when you’ve had Jason Peters, Jordan Mailata, Jason Kelce, Brandon Brooks, and Lane Johnson as teammates. Make no mistake about it though. Isaac is the best left guard no one talks about.

Behind him on the depth chart is Landon Dickerson. Philly also has solid youth at the guard position with Jack Driscoll, Sua Opeta, and Kayode Awosika. There’s no need to spend money on Nate Herbig that can be used to fill a more pressing need at another position, nor do the Eagles need to hang on to tight end Jason Croom.

Even though he’s earned the rare distinction of having his lone NFL reception result in a touchdown, there isn’t much of an argument for him staying. Dallas Goedert is set as this team’s TE1, and the Birds have better prospects at the position in Jack Stoll, Tyree Jackson (if they can get something out of him), and Noah Togiai. The Eagles can also draft a tight end come April if they’re pressed about adding another body.
