Former Eagles players who are unsurprisingly still free agents
Robert Quinn, defensive end
The move made sense at the time. The 2022 Eagles demonstrated very quickly that they had a real shot at qualifying for the Super Bowl and winning it. Howie Roseman decided he would go all in and add as many pieces as possible to aid in getting that job done.
One of those pieces was a defensive end, Robert Quinn. The hope was he would prove he had a little something left in the tank. It was very obvious very quickly that he didn’t.
Philadelphia moved on during free agency. No one has picked Robert up since, and it’s safe to assume no one will unless a team has injury issues down the road.
Ronald Darby, cornerback
Ronald Darby has never been dubbed the prototypical cornerback or one of the ‘shutdown’ variety. He isn’t great, but he can be very good in the right situation. The problem he has is that he’s now entering territory some see as being deserving of pro football’s scarlet letter… or number. Darby turns 30 years young in January.
While we have seen guys play into their 30s and maintain a decent level of consistency, it’s tough to ask guys to do that when their job is to chase wide receivers all over the field that run the 40-yard dash in 4.3 seconds.
Here’s an idea though. Why not try Ronald Darby out at safety?
