Here is a trio of established offensive veterans that are entering their first or second year with the Eagles.

They aren't rookies or sophomores per se, but they're still new to the Eagles franchise. You can best believe we'll be cheering for them all season.

A.J. Brown, wide receiver

A.J. Brown, in his first year with the Eagles, produced career highs in targets (145), receptions (88). and catches that produced first-down yardage (59), He fell just four yards short of tallying 1,500 yards receiving, and the best part of all of that is this. He's just getting started.

With the Tennessee Titans long in his rear-view mirror, the only questions now are about how high he'll soar in the Midnight Green. He's already one of the best in the game at his position, and he'll earn more opportunities to prove that during the coming campaign.

Olamide Zaccheaus, wide receiver

These days, with all of the pass-happy offenses that NFL offenses employ, the slot receiver is basically a starter. So is the slot cornerback. Olamide Zaccheaus enters his fifth NFL season, his first in Philly. Don't be shocked if he earns the starting slot wide receiver job over Quez Watkins.

D'Andre Swift, running back

The Birds have been interested in D'Andre Swift since he entered the league in 2020. They finally got their man, and in this high-powered Eagles offense, he is expected to put up huge numbers and produce a lot of highlights. Could we be on the verge of his first Pro Bowl season?

Keep an eye on Rashaad Penny as well. He'll also have a role in this team's offense. Hopefully the rotation will keep Swift, Penny, Kenny Gainwell, and Boston Scott fresh all season.
