Teair Tart, interior defensive lineman

Some may set the alarms off because they aren't fans of the tension that resulted from Teair Tart's standoff with the Tennessee Titans front office. He played on a second-round restricted free agent tender in 2023, one that paid him $4.3 million, but there were questions about effort, questions that eventually resulted in the Titans moving on. That's the second red flag. It's hard to deny what he brings to the field though.

Tart brings what Ndamukong Suh and Linval Joseph brought to this team during the failed Super Bowl run in 2022. He's hard to move with one blocker. He's stout versus the run and is an effective pass rusher. He's this offseason's D.J. Jones and could flourish in the right locker room, but if Fletcher Cox wants to return, he'd probably be Philly's better option.

59 Andrew Van Ginkel, EDGE

Andrew Van Ginkel is familiar with Vic Fangio, having played for him as a member of the Miami Dolphins. He was very productive when Jaelan Phillips was lost to injury.

Experts won't like Van Ginkel because he doesn't fit into the cookie-cutter mold of what we think an NFL pass rusher will look like. He's slender, so he, at times, struggles with getting off blocks. He has short arms, which is also part of that problem, but he makes plays.

With Jalen Carter, Milton Williams, and Jordan Davis causing issues on the inside, and with Josh Sweat wreaking havoc from the other side, Van Ginkel is good enough to make plays though.
