The Eagles believe Cam Jurgens can get the job done but there's nothing wrong with adding more protection. As stated earlier, even if Jurgens successfully replaces Jason Kelce, Philadelphia still doesn't know exactly what they have in Tyler Steen as their right guard. They did pick up Matt Hennessy and Mekhi Becton in free agency and added Trevor Keegan and Dylan McMahon in the draft, which should help — but they could swing for the fences.

Connor Williams, a former second-round pick for the Dallas Cowboys, signed with the Miami Dolphins in the 2022 offseason. A tackle from Texas who converted to guard for Dallas eventually moved inside to center for Miami. In that role, he was playing at an All-Pro level for nine games in 2023 before suffering a torn ACL.

Heading into free agency, Williams said he wanted to be "very methodical" in his approach. He's been taking his time to ensure he's fully healed from his surgery and wants to find the best situation possible to continue his career.

Perhaps, that could be with the Eagles, who would be able to give him a chance to chase a ring.

Even with Williams potentially being unavailable in Week 1, adding him would be a smart investment. If Jurgens excels at center, Williams can fight for a spot at guard. If they find he's better suited at guard, Jurgens can slide back to right guard while Williams becomes their starting center for the foreseeable future.
