Marcus Mariota, quarterback

We'll avoid the larger questions about the Eagles' QB room for now and focus on Mariota, whose current contract voids on February 20th. Mariota has been in the league for a decade. He felt like a serviceable Jalen Hurts backup. He appeared in three games, threw a touchdown, and -- more importantly -- only threw one interception.

He did exactly what a backup QB is supposed to do, but other quality backups can hep a good team tread water. He was part of some weird late-season discourse where some fans/talking heads began saying he'd be a better option than Hurts.

The Eagles love their QB room as is, but with Tanner McKee waiting in the wings, Mariota's time in Philly is probably up.

Worth keeping an eye on: Jason Kelce

Jason Kelce still hasn't officially announced his retirement after it was reported he told his teammates that was his intention. A day later, the conversations are about him taking his time to make a decision.

The six-time All-Pro is destined for Pro Football Hall of Fame enshrinement, He appeared in (and started) 205 games including the playoffs and is a team captain and franchise legend.

He certainly doesn't have any more to prove, but the end of an era is always bittersweet (if this turns out to be the end). His exit would leave a void in the Eagles' locker room. We'll see what he decides as time goes on.
