2. Josh Sweat, EDGE

The Philadelphia Eagles brought Josh Sweat back for one more ride in 2024, but this season could be the end of the line for him in Philadelphia.

There were a variety of trade rumors centered around Sweat this offseason before he and the Eagles ultimately agreed upon a new one-year deal that will make him a free agent in the 2025 offseason.

And that appears to be where these two sides will part ways.

Sweat just turned 27 this offseason and when he hits free agency entering his age-28 season, he should be able to cash in, in a big way. He's averaged 19 QB hits and 8.0 sacks per 17 games played over the last four seasons, and had a career-best 37 total pressures last season for the Eagles.

Clearly, the production is there from Sweat, but the Eagles went out this offseason and brought in Bryce Huff just one year after drafting Nolan Smith in the first round out of Georgia. There's a clear commitment to moving on from Sweat, and it feels like it nearly happened already this offseason.

Once he hits free agency in 2025, his time with the Eagles will officially be over.

3. Brandon Graham, EDGE

At some point, it's going to be Brandon Graham's last year with the Philadelphia Eagles, right?

Graham is 36 years old this coming season, and he's still going strong for the Eagles. The Eagles brought him back this offseason on a one-year deal worth $4 million, which seems pretty fair given the fact that he had 11.0 sacks just two seasons ago.

He had three sacks last year for Philly, but he's still effective in a sub-package role. The 395 snaps we saw Graham play last year were the least he's played in a fully healthy season since very early on in his NFL career.

Even with Vic Fangio coming in to run the defense, it seems like the Eagles feel like Graham can play a big role this coming season and for the team-friendly price of just $4 million. He gave them 11 pressures last year and even though his years of 25-30 pressures per season could be over, Graham gives the Eagles a weapon late in the year when you need to be able to bring pass rush in waves.

This could very well be the last year of Graham's NFL career in general, not just his career with the Philadelphia Eagles.
