#8. Larry Fitzgerald, WR
Here’s an interesting one to consider. Future first ballot Hall of Famer Larry Fitzgerald has yet to sign with a new team this offseason, and the Philadelphia Eagles in all honesty have an underrated need at wide receiver, specifically when it comes to the “X receiver” position (the role that Fitz has played his entire NFL career).
While the Eagles are obviously looking to construct their passing game around the likes of Jalen Reagor and recently drafted DeVonta Smith, the presence of a true veteran in the WR room is an underrated aspect to consider. Right now, the longest tenured Eagles WR is Greg Ward, someone who might not even be guaranteed a starting role by the time Week 1 rolls around.
With Travis Fulgham and JJ Arcega-Whiteside the current top options at X receiver, bringing in Fitzgerald to start over them makes some sense. While it would zap playing time from Fulgham and JJAW, it would provide a much-needed instructional voice to the Eagles young and inexperienced WR room.
Similar to how the team added defensive end Ryan Kerrigan a few weeks back, bringing in a world class veteran – even in a rebuilding year – has its pros.
