5 Super Bowl free agents the Eagles should consider signing, and one wild card

The 49ers and Chiefs have stocked their cupboards with former Eagles before. Might Philly raid their rosters this offseason?

Drue Tranquill, linebacker, Kansas City Chiefs

Chiefs linebacker Drue Tranquill is very interesting. A former member of the PFWA All-Rookie Team (2019), he's still on the right side of 30, though he's toeing the line. He turns 29 years young before the start of the 2024 regular season.

Philly's negligence in addressing their needs at linebacker is well-documented. There's no need to revisit here. Their hire of the unit's position coach and Howie Roseman's rave reviews lead us to believe Zach Cunningham might return. Nakobe Dean will also be in the mix.

Still, if Philly is looking for insurance (and an opportunity to move Dean to an outside backer role), this might be the elixir for all that ails them if the Chiefs don't retain him.

Clelin Ferrell, EDGE, San Francisco 49ers

As general manager of the Oakland/Las Vegas Raiders, Mike Mayock made a few errors in judgment. One of which was selecting Clelin Ferrell too high.

Ferrell isn't a world-beater. He's okay, and that's fine. That could also mean that Philly could land him at a discount if the Niners move on.

His most recent campaign, a potential one-and-done affair with the Whiners, was his best since his rookie season in 2019 and could lead to him hitting the open market. Philly should see if he comes with a discounted price tag should that happen. They need some depth at EDGE.
