The Eagles have to find a way to keep James Bradberry and T.J. Edwards, right?

You can’t ask for much more from T.J. Edwards than the Eagles have gotten out of him. An undrafted free agent in 2019, he’s worked his way up from being the low man on the totem pole to being a starter and one of this team’s best players. There are only two issues.

One, he’s one of 18 players the Eagles have to decide about. Second, he plays a position that Howie Roseman and the Eagles haven’t always treated as one that they value.

Fellow linebacker Haason Reddick received a huge payday last March. As mentioned earlier, Kyzir White is looking for an extension too.

Hopefully, the Birds now see the linebacker position as important, but is it so important that they’ll give huge paydays to both T.J. and Kyzir?

This one is tough. When the 2023 NFL season begins, James Bradberry will be 30 years of age. As you know, that’s when teams begin to look at players unfavorably.

He’s going to earn a Pro Bowl nod this season though, so here’s the ten-million-dollar question (pun intended). It would be unwise to move on from an all-star when he can still play for at least three more seasons, right?

The Eagles may receive a compensatory pick if Bradberry leaves, but for now, we’ll put an asterisk beside his name.
