Philadelphia Eagles fans across the country officially know who’s on this year’s 53-man roster following Tuesday’s cut-down deadline. While most of the Eagles’ releases were expected, other cuts caught the fanbase off guard, to say the least.
Philly’s roster might be set at the moment, but that doesn’t mean that fresh faces can’t be added. The roster still has areas where it can be improved and it’d be in general manager Howie Roseman’s best interest to address those issues before it’s too late.

3 Eagles Free Agent Targets
1. Pat O’Donnell, P
Eagles fans weren’t exactly surprised when the team released Arryn Siposs. While the transaction was more than deserved, it also left Philadelphia without a starting punter for the 2023 NFL season.
The good news is that the Eagles have several free-agent replacement options, including veterans like Pat O’Donnell.
The 32-year-old special teamer has had a successful career, playing 145 games across nine seasons with the Chicago Bears and Green Bay Packers. While he doesn’t have any individual accolades to his name, he’s about as reliable as they come after missing just one game since being drafted in 2014.
O’Donnell isn’t in his prime, but he also isn’t terrible. He still averaged 44.5 yards on 52 punts with the Packers last season, finishing with 46.2% of his attempts landing inside the 20-yard line — the best mark of his career.
Even with O’Donnell being Pro Football Focus‘ No. 28-ranked punter in 2022, that’s still an improvement over Siposs, who finished at No. 33. Considering how there are only 32 teams in the league, it isn’t hard to see how anyone — especially O’Donnell — would be an upgrade.
