It’s going to be pretty much impossible to keep all of the Eagles’ impending free agents, but if they retain some key players, there’s no reason that they can’t make it all the way back to the Super Bowl.
But oddsmakers at Caesars Sportsbook have the Eagles listed at +800 odds to win next year’s Super Bowl behind the Chiefs, 49ers and Bills.
Below I’ll detail some key free agents Philly should re-sign if it wants to run it back, but before that you won’t want to miss out on this limited-time promotion from Caesars.

Let’s examine why re-signing these three free agents should have you feeling optimistic about this season:
Three Free Agents Philly Should Re-Sign to Win SB LVIII
Philadelphia was one of the deepest teams in the NFL this season, and as a result, will have SEVERAL impending free agents that will be tempting to keep.
Over a half-dozen impact defenders, two running backs and a couple of offensive linemen are all due for a new contract, but it’s likely that the Eagles will have to be very selective with who they keep in order to afford a contract extension for Jalen Hurts.
Here are the three players who wouldn’t break the bank and would provide immense value:
Philly took a bit of a gamble on Gardner-Johnson when they traded for him before this past season. Despite missing a few games due to a lacerated kidney, the defensive back was an undisputed success.
He finished the season with 61 tackles, six interceptions, and eight pass deflections. In the likely event that James Bradberry leaves via free agency, retaining Gardner-Johnson becomes paramount to the back end of this defense.
If Philly and Gardner-Johnson can’t reach a new deal, franchise tagging him would be a reasonable solution.
The Eagles have maintained a competitive team year after year thanks to fantastic talent in the trenches – on both sides of the ball.
It was no secret that the Eagles’ offensive line created a devastating rushing attack, and it will be important to keep that strength going forward.
With center Jason Kelce now 35 years old and perpetually on the verge of retirement, bringing Seumalo back would guarantee that the Eagles wouldn’t lose multiple starters on the O-line this offseason.
Keeping Minshew might not be a priority for many Eagles fans, but consider the cost it would take to retain him (low) against the risk of not having a competent backup (yikes). Just look at what happened to the 49ers this season.
San Francisco had some terrible luck with quarterback health, but they NEVER would have been in a position to make a Super Bowl run if they didn’t have Jimmy Garoppolo and Brock Purdy on the roster.
Hurts puts himself in harm’s way nearly every game with the physical way he plays and Minshew proved competent when Hurts had to miss two games this past season.
Minshew threw for 355 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions in a one-score loss to Dallas and then threw for 274 yards, one touchdown, and one interception in a 10-point loss to New Orleans.
If Hurts has to be sidelined at all this fall, the season could go sideways if Philly doesn’t have a backup who can at least keep the team in games.
Regardless of who the Eagles re-sign this offseason, they’re still a good bet to beat the expectations. Grab some value now, fully insured! Sign up with Caesars today before this offer is over.
