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?

Tershawn Wharton, EDGE, Kansas City Chiefs

We mentioned the Eagles need help at EDGE, right? No, seriously. You caught that, right?

Tershawn Wharton wasn't a starter for the Chiefs and probably wouldn't be one for Philadelphia, but he's versatile. He can play both inside and out along the defensive line, and that versatility would be of benefit to Philly as would adding a depth piece they always seem to need.

Keep an eye on Wharton if K.C. moves on. He could come at a discount.

Mike Edwards, safety, Kansas City Chiefs

Well, we haven't mentioned any defensive backs, so let's throw one in for good measure. If Philly winds up moving on from Kevin Byard, they'd save themselves a few coins. That would allow them to add one that's a tad less expensive, and Mike Edwards fits the bill (pun intended).

During the regular season, he collected 51 tackles, a sack, an interception, five pass breakups, two fumble recoveries, and a defensive TD. He added 12 tackles, two pass breakups, and a pick during the postseason, but this could be a one-and-done affair in Kansas City. Philly should check him out if it is.

Worth considering: Chase Young, EDGE, San Francisco 49ers

Again... You should be seeing a pattern here. The Eagles must consider adding EDGE talent in both the free-agency period and the NFL Draft. We know this Chase Young fella. He was always injured as a member of the Washington Football Team/Commanders.

He missed four of a possible eight games versus the Birds before being traded to San Fran and earning a bonus game versus Philly as a member of the Whiners. He has totaled ten tackles, a forced fumble, 3.5 sacks, and seven additional QB hits versus the good guys.

Even though his career hasn't turned out like we thought it would, sometimes NFL coaching staffs believe they can get something out of a guy that another team can't.

Are the Eagles and Clint Hurtt paying attention?
