While the Philadelphia Eagles have a well-rounded roster, there is always room for improvement at every position.

The Philadelphia Eagles will enter training camp with one of the best rosters in the NFL. Vice president/general manager Howie Roseman is aware of that, but don't you, for a second, think that he isn't working! He has been known for making late additions to the roster. Look no further than the addition of C.J. Gardner-Johnson ahead of the regular season if you need an example.

The Birds are likely analyzing each position on their team and perusing the available list of free agents. They have just under $14 million in cap space according to OverTheCap, and the addition of another difference maker is a possibility that no one should rule out. Here's one more look at some high-profile guys that you may have heard of. Each would make headlines if signed.

The question is this. Would they make the roster?

Quarterback: Nick Foles

For the first time in several years, the Philadelphia Eagles have no questions about the quarterback position heading into the season. They have a star. They have a legitimate backup. This time last year, there was uncertainty surrounding Jalen Hurts. Philly even had a trade offer in place for Russell Wilson before the trade thankfully fell through.

That isn't the case now. Philly doesn't need another signal-caller, but if they did, how cool would it be to bring back the former Super Bowl MVP for one last hurrah? Nick Foles has already stated he would like to retire as an Eagle. and he may, by way of a one-day contract of course.

Foles is an Eagle through and through. Ian Book and Tanner McKee will battle in the preseason for the opportunity to be the third quarterback on the depth chart, so there's no room for Nick, at least not now, but this would certainly be a whole lot of fun. Plus, unlike Philly's last franchise QB, Jalen is tough enough to handle Foles' presence in the locker room.
