When looking at Howie Roseman now, it's hard to imagine that there was ever a time when Philadelphia Eagles fans had GM fatigue. He's the best in the business. He's been the toast of Philly for a while now, but that doesn't mean he isn't human. He's had to learn how to adjust and make changes.

Through the years, Howie had a tendency to get too attached to players. He's written himself into bad deals. He has had to spend exorbitant amounts of money on aging players because he has missed on too many draft picks.

Then again, that could be said about every GM.

When the smoke clears and dust settles, Howie gets the job done more often than not. He has truly learned from past mistakes. Who would you rather have running this team?

The 2024 Eagles are a perfect blend of veterans and young stars, but many of these guys won't be here for the long-term. Here's your roll call. Here's a look at every Eagle playing on an expiring contract. The count currently stands at 34 players.

Philly has 28 impending unrestricted free agents on the current roster.

Unrestricted rights free agents (UFAs) are players who are not under contract with a team. They are allowed to negotiate and sign with any team od their choosing, and their previous team won't receive compensation. 

UFAs must have at least four accrued seasons in the league. Accrued seasons mean they have no less than six or more regular-season games on a club's active, inactive, reserve, injured, or reserve/physically unable to perform (PUP) lists. 

Here are the 28 unrestricted free agents on Philly's roster.

Four Eagles are impending 2025 restricted free agents.

Restricted rights free agents (RFAs) are players who can sign with another team but can also be retained by their original team if the latter matches the former's offer. This is called the "right of first refusal"

RFAs are considered such if they have enjoyed three accrued seasons in the league and if they have received a qualifying offer from their previous team before their contract expires.

Qualifying offers are salary tenders set by the league and its Collective Bargaining Agreement. RFAs can then negotiate with any team of their choosing but only up to a specific date.

Philly has four restricted free agents on the roster.

Josh Jobe, cornerback
Ty Davis-Price, running back
Tarron Jackson, defensive end
Britain Covey, wide receiver/returner

A pair of Eagles fall in the exclusive rights free agent category.

An exclusive rights free agent has two or fewer accrued seasons on their resume and is at the end of his expired contract. The Birds have two players on their roster that could land in that category.

Defensive end Thomas Booker is one of those players. Linebacker Ben VanSumeren is the other. Stay tuned! We'll be watching.
