And, so it begins. The defending NFC Champions, the Philadelphia Eagles must reload if they’re to get back to football’s biggest stage and seal the deal this time around. Two of their veteran leaders, Jason Kelce and Brandon Graham have agreed to return. That’s good news for the offense and defense.

Legal tampering began on Monday, March 13th at noon. It didn’t take long for other teams to tamper with the Eagles’ roster. T.J. Edwards and Javon Hargrave were claimed by the Chicago Bears and San Francisco 49ers respectively. Buckle up because there will be a few more guys that follow them out of the door. Let’s talk specifics.

Here’s a look at every Philadelphia Eagles player scheduled to enter the free agency pool as well as some updates and grades.

Don’t look now, but Javon Hargrave has hit the jackpot. His deal is reportedly for four years and worth $84 million with $40 million guaranteed at signing.

T.J., Javon, Jason, and Brandon’s deals can all be made official and signed when the new league year arrives on March 15th at 4 p.m. EST.

Eagles 2023 free-agent signings:

The Birds haven’t made any major outside splashes as cap space is limited, especially now that it has been announced that Brandon Graham and Jason Kelce will return. Still, we’ve seen this before. We wouldn’t be shocked if Philly frees up more room after a restructuring or two.

Keep Darius Slay and Lane Johnson’s deals on your minds on that front, and watch below this line. We’ll keep you abreast of any signings and the financial implications once deals are announced as official.
