Satisfying every Eagles roster need by stealing two players from every NFC East rival

There is always room for improvement. There are always guys on other teams that we wish played for the Eagles.

Let's be honest. Micah Parsons wants to join the Eagles anyway.

Sick Pick: Micah Parsons - EDGE

Advanced statistics show that if Micah Parsons was an edge rusher for the Eagles, he would probably earn 15 sacks per game. If you paired that with him not so secretly wanting to be an Eagle, it's easy to make arguments that end with him being a sleep paralysis demon for the 11 guys on the other side of the football on game days.

If you're looking for something more solid than a wing and a prayer and you're truly interested in Micah Parsons trading blue and grey for midnight green, think about this. Here's a secanrio we thought about recently.

The Cowboys pick up Parsons’ fifth-year option. After that, they need to get him on a bigger contract, but Micah is rightfully doubtful of the Cowboys’ ability to get anything done in the playoffs. He begins shopping himself to other teams. He's impressed by the steady organization in Philly and is won over by their chances of being an annual championship contender.

Parsons is a native of Harrisburg, Pennsylvania. He probably had dreams of being an Eagle since he was a wee lad. Bada bing, bada boom. We can see this happening. This would certainly send Cowboys fans over the edge, wouldn't it?

Smart Pick: Zack Martin - Right Guard

Jeff Stoutland has rightfully earned every ounce of faith that has been given. If you find yourself trusting him more than you trust yourself, you’re 100% correct to do so. He’s going to do the right thing with the right guard position, whether that be placing Cam Jurgens there or Giving the job to rookie Tyler Steen, but it would be fun to add Zack Martin to what the Eagles already have.

Martin would certainly step right in and make things a lot easier for everyone. The aforementioned current options are undersized (Cam Jurgens) and inexperienced (Tyler Steen). They'll be fine. They'll be good pros, but Martin is a plug-and-play starter. He doesn’t get penalized, and he doesn’t allow sacks.
