With free agency less than two weeks away, Howie Roseman would be wise to follow these simple steps to effectively revamp the Philadelphia Eagles in 2020.
If you want something bad enough, you can find a way to get it. By and large, this has been Howie Roseman’s motto throughout both tenures as Philadelphia Eagles GM. It remains his mindset this offseason.
Equipped with ten draft picks and roughly $40 million in cap space, Roseman is poised for a busy season of maneuvering. Some needs are glaring: upgrades at wide receiver, cornerback, and linebacker stand out as three of the biggest.
Emphasis on the word some.
Despite having their franchise quarterback in play, the Eagles only have one player currently slotted in behind Carson Wentz on their depth chart in 2018 New York Giants fourth-round pick Kyle Lauletta, as both Josh McCown and Nate Sudfeld are set to become unrestricted free agents in two weeks.
With virtually no position on the roster 100 percent set, save for maybe kicker, punter, and holder, there will, could, and should be a few new faces across the board when the Eagles take the field for opening day, both on the field and on the sidelines.
Fortunately, with free agency set to open up later this month and the NFL Draft following close behind in April, Howie Roseman and company will have a ton of chances to make the Philadelphia Eagles better. With this in mind, let’s take a look at five reasonable expectations for the Birds this offseason.
