Former Eagles who are still available and worth mentioning during free agency

The Eagles are adding to their roster, but former Birds have yet to find new homes.

What a start, huh? Legal tampering is underway, and yes, there have been fireworks. Most Philadelphia Eagles fans would have been happy had the Birds landed Bryce Huff or Saquon Barkley. As it turns out, they have reportedly landed both. Huff's deal is a whopping three-year, $51.1 million arrangement while Barkley cashes in on a three-year, $37.75 million purse. Well, we can retire that 'Howie Roseman won't pay a running back' argument now, but as you know neither deal can be finalized until the new league year begins on March 13th.

Philly didn't stop there. They also added a linebacker, former New Orleans Saint Zack Baun. This comes after the news that Brandon Graham would be retained for another season.

Howie Roseman's approval rating is soaring. Again, the new league year hasn't officially started yet which means Philly's GM might continue to be aggressive. Something crossed our mind though.

There are several former Eagles who haven't found new homes yet.

They say 'once a Raider, always a Raider'. Most fan bases and media members can identify with that. If we're honest, we all keep tabs on what former players are doing.

Former Eagles are in search of new homes. They caught our attention for obvious reasons. A reunion might not be likely, but it will be interesting to see where they land.

C.J. Gardner-Johnson, safety

There's reportedly some interest from Philly in bringing C.J. Gardner-Johnson back. While that conversation sparks debate, two things are on everyone's mind. First, he enjoyed a damn fine year in Philly when he was here. Second, things ended on a sour note.

Jordan Hicks, linebacker

Jordan Hicks' tenure in Philly was exciting... when he played. He left in part because durability was a question, but since he left, he's been virtually indestructible (with the exception of last season). Again a reunion here seems unlikely, but it will be interesting to see where he lands.

Jordan Poyer, safety

Jordan Poyer wasn't in Philly long, but he became a great player after leaving. Two things are working against him. There are a lot of talented safeties in the NFL Draft class and free agency AND, he'll be 33 by the time the regular season begins.

Steven Nelson, cornerback

Steven Nelson wasn't great while in Philly, but he wasn't trash either. He landed with the Houston Texans, and we learned he's versatile but should be deployed in off-coverage.

He just turned 31, and again, there are defensive backs who are younger. It might be fair to state he'll land somewhere but later on down the line.
