Former Eagles players who failed with their new team in 2023

With a full season since their departure behind us, we catch up with some former Eagles that we still have love for.

Zach Pascal, wide receiver, Arizona Cardinals

If we're being honest, our opinion of Zach Pascal is slanted. We love the guy, so it's hard to be critical, even if the criticism is warranted. We've just never understood why, even though this guy has nice hands and can "route someone up" if necessary, no one wants to allow him an opportunity to prove himself as someone who can do more than the dirty work.

He hauled in 15 receptions for 150 yards and a TD with the Eagles in 2022 while appearing in 17 games with two starts. He signed a two-year deal worth $4.5 million on March 20th of last year and followed Jonathan Gannon to the Arizona Cardinals. That resulted in 14 in-game appearances, one start, and four receptions.

Final grade: C-

Gosh, we guess he's doing what he's asked to do, but for a man that plays the wide receiver position, that has to be frustrating.

Not quite a fail but worth mentioning: Linval Joseph, Buffalo Bills

There's no point in fibbing. We didn't know Linval Joseph was on the Buffalo Bills' roster until they visited Philly last season and we saw his name on their roster and that he had been signed on November 2nd.

We're not sure what the Bills' expectations were when they signed him to a one-year deal worth up to $3.72 million, but for an emergency signing, they have to pretty pleased with the 12-tackle, one-sack statline he crafted in seven games. He even added three more tackles during Buffalo's two-game postseason run.

Grade: B+

Okay, so maybe this isn't a fail, which means he shouldn't be on this list, but we had a change of heart. We wanted to end this on a high note, and we thought it would be nice that the old man is still doing work. He turns 36 years old on October 10th.
