The Philadelphia Eagles are operating with the same expectations as the last few seasons: Super Bowl or bust. That goal has led to massive shakeups for both the coaching staff and roster already this offseason.

While Howie Roseman's been busy, he shouldn't take his foot off the gas now as he looks for another championship ring. Luckily, there's a few veterans still available in free agency who could help Philly get back to the mountaintop.

1. Stephon Gilmore

Cornerback is one position the Eagles haven't tinkered much with this offseason. The team did opt to release Avonte Maddox following his injury troubles, but Philly just agreed to re-sign the veteran CB on Thursday, giving them a potential starting slot man if he stays healthy.

Meanwhile, there's a looming contract decision to be made on second cornerback James Bradberry. His clear struggles in 2023 open the door for Philadelphia to release him as a post-June 1 cut and spread his cap hit out over the next two seasons.

Assuming the Eagles do part ways with Bradberry, there's one obvious replacement on the market in Stephon Gilmore.

Gilly Lock continues to make plays even as he ages. The former Defensive Player of the Year is fresh off of a 13-pass-breakup, two-interception season for the Dallas Cowboys, where he provided incredible stability while they dealt with injuries in the secondary.

Even though Gilmore is 34 years old now, it's obvious he can help any secondary. The league's general lack of interest in the five-time Pro Bowler creates a golden opportunity for Roseman to add a legit veteran talent for less than usual.

Gilmore's ability to mentor Kelee Ringo, who could be a long-term solution at CB in Philadelphia, only adds to the value he'd bring in as a signing.
