6 Eagles who are playing their way out of Philadelphia's plans for 2024

Here are a half-dozen Eagles who wouldn't surprise us if they were left off the 2024 roster.

Bradley Roby, cornerback

If Bradley Roby doesn't do anything else as a professional football player, he'll be able to show off his Super Bowl ring forever. Did you know that? Yep, he's a champion having won with the 2015 Denver Broncos in Super Bowl 50.

He started four of Denver's 16 regular-season games that season. He has started two of his seven in-game appearances with the Eagles this season. If the Birds hoist their second Vince Lombardi Trophy, it will be despite Roby, not because of him.

He's here because Avonte Maddox and Zech McPhearson got hurt (and because everyone the Eagles experimented with in the slot flopped). Using the eyeball test, however, there's no need for his Eagles sequel.

Rashaad Penny, running back

Some of you may make the argument that, technically, Rashaad Penny hasn't played and that there's really no reason to name him here as his exit from the franchise feels like a given. You get the idea though. We just wanted you to know how disappointed we were.

When his acquisition was announced, we were kind of getting LeGarrette Blount vibes. There is the same level of excitement. Unfortunately, Blount had a lot more left than Penny did.

The good news is Penny wasn't paid much, and his deal concludes once we reach free agency in March. In short, this arrangement sadly isn't working out.
