9. Brandon Graham

Brandon Graham, a 14-year Philadelphia Eagles veteran, says he wants to play one more season, and he wants it to be with the Birds. Graham was the Eagles' first-round pick in the 2010 draft and has been a staple on Philadelphia's defensive line ever since.

Graham has played all 195 games of his career with the Eagles. He has 73 sacks and 21 forced fumbles. He was voted to the Pro Bowl in 2020 and was part of the Eagles' lone Super Bowl championship in 2017-18.

While Graham wants to be able to finish his career in Philadelphia with the Eagles, the Eagles may choose to pivot. We all saw how quickly the defense crumbled last season. They couldn't stop anyone, and they could not stay healthy. Fatigue was setting in, and they could not keep up. They need to look towards the draft and free agency to get younger.

Sirianni cannot afford to have another year without a deep playoff run. He'll turn to Howie Roseman to help him get younger, faster, and stronger -- especially on defense -- to keep up in a very competitive NFC East. Remember, this division has not had a back-to-back winner since 2004, when the Eagles did it for the 4th consecutive time.

Graham's age may impact them dethroning the Cowboys of their title.
