T.J. Edwards, Linebacker, Chicago Bears

It still irritates us that the Eagles determined they'd rather have a linebacker on their roster that the Chicago Bears elected to move on from (Nicholas Morrow) than one of their homegrown talents that the Bears actually wanted (T.J. Edwards).

T.J. was an undrafted addition acquired by Philly in the 2019 NFL Draft. He worked his way up the ladder, eventually becoming a starter and one of the Eagles' best players on defense, but the Birds let him walk during the 2023 free-agency frenzy.

How did that work out? T.J. led the Bears in total tackles and solo stops this season. He signed a three-year, 19.5 million dollar contract on March 15th, and though Philly may never believe this, we're completely convinced linebackers are worth $6.5 million per season.

Gosh, we hope Nakobe Dean can play!

Miles Sanders, Running Back, Carolina Panthers

Many believed that Miles Sanders was talented, but they also believed that much of his success during the 2022 NFL season, one that led to his first Pro Bowl nod, came from playing behind pro football's top offensive line.

His recent season in Charlotte with the Carolina Panthers has resulted in 15 in-game appearances with five starts. 432 yards rushing and a touchdown on 129 carries and 154 yards on 27 receptions are what Carolina got from their four-year, $25.4 million investment.
