This offseason, the Philadelphia Eagles set themselves up nicely for the NFL Draft. They addressed a couple of their most pressing needs by signing Saquon Barkley at running back and Devin White at linebacker.

They were then able to go into the draft and attack the secondary, adding Quinyon Mitchell from Toledo and Cooper DeJean from Iowa. After adding the two cornerbacks, they focused solely on the talent on the board and came away with an impressive group of rookies.

Now, we look back over their roster and identify three veterans who could be on the way out following the additions.

3. Zack Baun, LB

A former third-round pick for the New Orleans Saints, Zack Baun signed as a free agent this offseason in Philly. He had 30 tackles and two sacks last year which was his best to date. However, he’s still someone who was a pass-rusher in college but trying to reach his potential in the NFL.

Right now, he’s third on the depth chart behind White and Nakobe Dean. He will also compete with Oren Burks, who was signed away from the San Francisco 49ers during free agency, and rookie Jeremiah Trotter, Jr. who is the son of a former Eagles Pro Bowler.

Trotter had a solid career at Clemson but comes in with questions due to his size and arm length. All he needs is a chance to prove himself and if he can assert himself as a better option than Baun, the Eagles might be willing to see if anyone is willing to part with future picks for linebacker depth.
