Howie Roseman has done a good job of building the Eagles' roster. Here are a few areas where we'd love to see him hone in.

Change is already underway in Philadelphia. It may be time for a youth movement.

The questions around Philadelphia's core have emerged, and deservingly so. Jason Kelce will announce his decision regarding retirement on Monday, March 4th at 1 pm EST. The Eagles gave star EDGE Haason Reddick permission to seek a trade, allowing the phenom to look for a suitor that could suffice. But, there's a catch. With other EDGE Josh Sweat also due for a contract extension, the Eagles may elect to go with youth over experience.

Fletcher Cox and Brandon Graham have been stables of Philadelphia. They are two of the longest-tenured players in franchise history. For B.G., returning to the team may require potential financial pay cuts. Fletch reportedly is also considering retirement. What does that mean for Milton Williams, Nolan Smith, Jalen Carter, Jordan Davis, and the remainder of the younger Eagles defensive line ready to showcase themselves?

Adding another layer to this discussion, both Darius Slay and James Bradberry have exceeded 30 years old. They are aging, and that showed in their effectiveness, durability, and consistency from last year to this year's team.

Defensive coordinator changes both preseason and midseason last year surely did not help the duo. Slay's diminished health and Bradberry's horrid performances throughout the season have made Philadelphia reconsider some things.
