At 10-1, the Philadelphia Eagles were the best team in the NFL entering December. They had just knocked off the Buffalo Bills in overtime and felt as though they should lock up the No. 1 seed in the NFC with ease.

Then they were handed a 42-19 loss at the hands of the San Francisco 49ers which started a free fall. Philly lost five of the next six regular season games and then went one-and-done in the playoffs. That game wasn't close either, with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers winning 32-9.

Once the season ended, the Eagles made some changes. They now enter 2024 with a new coordinator on both sides of the ball and they had an impressive haul in the NFL Draft. That means the following three players find themselves on the chopping block even before OTAs begin.

3. Parris Campbell, Wide Receiver

Needing more depth behind A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith, the Eagles signed Parris Campbell and DeVonta Parker this offseason. They then went into the draft and selected Ainias Smith from Texas A&M and Johnny Wilson from Florida State.

Campbell, who spent 2023 with the New York Giants, finds himself in a tough spot. He had just 20 receptions for 104 yards last year, a far cry from his output in 2022 for the Indianapolis Colts. He's also dealt with injuries throughout his career, with that 2022 campaign serving as the only year he suited up for every game.

He was never a lock to make the 53-man roster but now he seems like a long shot. He won't even be able to lean on his talent as a return man since that's an area Smith shined at during his collegiate days — as did rookie cornerback Cooper DeJean.
