The Philadelphia Eagles have found their new offensive coordinator in Kellen Moore. The former Boise State star spent this past season working for the Los Angeles Chargers, though the year didn't go as planned for a number of reasons.

Now Moore will look to get his promising coaching career back on track in Philadelphia. He'll leave no stone unturned while taking over a unit with Super-Bowl-or-bust aspirations, which could include trying to add players from his last stop to help his new squad.

With that in mind, here are three Chargers that Moore could bring with him to the Eagles.

1. Jalen Guyton, WR

The WR3 role will once again be something that needs solving in Philly this offseason. Despite trying out Quez Watkins, Olamide Zaccheaus and Julio Jones in this spot throughout the 2023 campaign, no player emerged as the obvious best option.

Moore will surely want someone who can help his pass-happy scheme when A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith draw the bulk of opponents' attentions. That's why he could consider recommending Jalen Guyton as a low-risk flyer to Nick Sirianni this offseason.

The past two years have been incredibly difficult for Guyton, who's been hampered by injuries. An ACL tear early on in 2022 took most of that season away from him, and that major ailment forced him to miss the first seven contests of 2023.

Prior this, however, Guyton was the perfect WR3 in LA. He recorded 511 and 488 yards, respectively, during the 2020 and '21 campaigns along with 3 touchdowns each year. With an average of 16.3 yards per catch as well during this time, he was a clear playmaker.

The veteran wideout showed flashes of that form in Week 10 this past season, recording four receptions, 41 yards and a TD. He also played in eight of the team's last 10 contests, which is a positive step on its own considering his troubles staying on the field.

Now with an entire offseason to prepare, and without a major injury to rehab from, Guyton could be intriguing addition to any offense. It wouldn't cost Philadelphia anything more than the minimum to see if he can regain his status as a legit third receiver.
