With at least two more Eagles games remaining, we're already thinking about the shaping of the 2024 roster.
Well, here's the thing. At the time this story was published, we weren't sure how the Philadelphia Eagles' season would end, but we can make ourselves a promise. We know, beyond the shadow of a doubt, that we will see at least two more games.
At the time of this one's release, the regular-season finale is less than a week away. Philly has also assured itself of at least one playoff game. Fingers are crossed that the journey ends with a game to be played in February.
Whenever the ride ends, there are other certainties. Roster turnover is an annual occurrence. We always seem to ask the same questions. What will the Eagles do at linebacker and running back? Will Jason Kelce and Brandon Graham play one more season?
Contracts and the salary cap will also be an issue. That brings us to a few veterans. Despite a talented core, Philly must turn over every rock in an attempt to improve this team. That includes listening to potential trade offers from other franchises.
James Bradberry, cornerback
It seems unlikely that, with the 2023 tape that James Bradberry produced, he'd be on the radar of other NFL teams. Nothing is certain though. Every player can be unloaded on a desperate franchise at least once.
There's regression, and there's falling off of a cliff. Bradberry, named an All-Pro after last season, has done the latter. He has been a liability in coverage all season.
A free-agent in 2026, the Eagles have a potential out worked into his deal after next season, but they might be wise to move on before then.
Again, it seems doubtful teams would trade for an expensive cornerback who's on the wrong side of 30, but Philly has to try. They should probably field offers for the rest of this list as well.
