5 ways the Philadelphia Eagles can avoid a disastrous 2024 offseason

The Eagles have a championship window open, but they can't assume it won't close swiftly.

Avoid the temptation to find band-aid players who are hit-or-miss.

In an attempt to push the Eagles over the edge and increase Philly's chances of winning the big game, we have seen Howie Roseman gamble on some splash signings and additions. Some worked out (C.J. Gardner-Johnson, Linval Joseph, and Ndamukong Suh). Some were huge misses (Robert Quinn, Shaquille Leonard, and Kevin Byard).

Here's the thing. Each of those additions could be justified when they occurred. Sometimes you win with these things and sometimes you lose.

The Birds have coins to spend this offseason and could look to make a splash signing. We'd rather they keep the low-risk, high-reward signings (or the high-risk, low-reward signings in some cases) to a minimum. Proceed with caution. There's no need to spend frivolously.

Philly can't walk into another season without a bruiser at tailback.

There are options. Philadelphia may have to spend a few more coins if they want an elite talent in free agency, which probably lends to the theory that they won't land one. When have we ever known them to spend a great deal of money on tailbacks, right? Here's the thing though.

Running backs aren't making as much money as they used to. Maybe Philly can add one and pay him a team-friendly salary, but aside from all of that, here's where we stand.

The Eagles need a workhorse back that can pick up tough yards on third and fourth down and goal-line situations. We're sick of seeing Jalen Hurts get put in harm's way.
