Potential Eagles 2024 free-agent targets with ties to Kellen Moore

Might the Eagles pursue anyone in free agency that Kellen Moore has already worked with?

Noah Brown, wide receiver

This six-foot-two, 215-pound matchup nightmare would certainly add another weapon to the Philadelphia Eagles' passing attack. Noah Brown spent the most recent season with the Houston Texans but spent his first six with the Dallas Cowboys.

Injuries forced him to sit out of the 2019 NFL season, but he an Moore worked closely together from 2020 until 2022. He has hauled in 115 receptions for 1,547 and five TDs during his 76-game NFL career.

Honestly, we'd rather welcome Olamide Zaccheaus back than roll with Noah Brown. If bringing O.Z. back isn't an option, however, this young man should be on their list of intriguing free-agent prospects. He may be out of Philly's price range though.

Cedrick Wilson, wide receiver

Cedrick Wilson spent his two most recent NFL seasons with the Miami Dolphins. This came after the six-foot-two, 197-pound wideout played under Moore as a member of the Dallas Cowboys receiving corps for three seasons.

In total, he played the Eagles six times, and the Cowboys won four of those games. You probably won't remember much about his performance in the first three meetings. He was only targeted twice and tallied zero catches before snagging nine receptions and reaching the end zone three times in the last three meetings.

On paper, Wilson makes sense for Philly. He'd be a nice third option in an offensive attack that already features A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith. Still, as stated with Noah Brown, if Philly has the option of bringing Olamide Zaccheaus back, we'd rather welcome O.Z. back.

Honorable mention: Easton Stick, quarterback

The Eagles have two quarterbacks signed through the 2024 NFL season. One is the franchise, Jalen Hurts. The other is 2023 draftee Tanner McKee. The Birds are going to need a third quarterback.

Okay, no disrespect is intended, but Easton Stick probably shouldn't be signed as one of Philly's three signal-callers. We question his ability to win games if forced to start games. He was 0-4 as the L.A. Chargers starter last season, but in fairness, it's hard to judge most of L.A.'s talent based on what we saw last season. The Bolts were a mess.

Put an asterisk next to Stick's name. We'll revisit this conversation later.
