Rodney McLeod tops our list of available former Eagles. Does he top yours?

Rankings are subjective as you know. If you’re putting together a similar list to this one in your minds and you have Barnett and Nelson ranked ahead of Rodney McLeod, no one will be shocked. You shouldn’t be shocked if Rodney is back in an Eagles jersey at some point down the line either.

It sounds farfetched, but it could happen. A month ago, some of you didn’t think Anthony Harris, Greg Ward, or Boston Scott would be re-signed either.

The evaluation of how good Nelson and McLeod are (or whether or not they’re good) varies from Eagles fan to Eagles fan, but they are options if the Eagles are in a pinch and looking to round out their roster later.

Everyone’s grown weary with the decision to ‘run it back’ with so many members of last year’s roster. You can see how the dots connect here though. Nelson and McLeod were starters in 2021 and could find their way back to the nest for one more run.
