After a disappointing 2023 season, the Philadelphia Eagles now embark on a pivotal offseason as they try to return to the top of the NFC. The Eagles have already started to remake the roster for next season as they released veteran safety Kevin Byard to free up more cap space.

Philadelphia has 17 free agents that they hope to resign this offseason. That number might be less if defensive tackle Fletcher Cox decides to retire. The Eagles are projected to have $41.6 million in cap space, according to OverTheCap.com, which means they won’t be able to bring everyone back next season.

Below, we’ll discuss a few free agents who are most likely to re-sign this offseason with the Eagles.

1. Brandon Graham

The veteran defensive end said after the Eagles’ last game against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the playoffs that he wants to play one more season with the team and make it his “farewell tour.”

The 35-year-old defensive end took a step back in 2023 as he only had 16 combined tackles, six quarterback hits, and three sacks. However, Philadelphia would welcome Graham back to help lead a young defensive line under new defensive coordinator Vic Fangio. 

Graham has had an illustrious career thus far with the Eagles, recording 73 sacks (fourth-most in franchise history), and has a chance to move past Clyde Simmons (76 sacks) for third place next season.

If the Eagles bring back Graham, we should expect him to have a bounce-back season under Fangio, who got the most out of the Miami Dolphins’ pass rush this past season. Graham signed a one-year, $5 million contract last season to stay with the team. It wouldn’t be surprising to see him re-sign for a similar amount this offseason.
