2. Julio Jones, WR

Julio Jones was a late addition to the Eagles' 2023 roster, signing a one-year contract with the franchise back in the middle of October.

Needless to say, Eagles fans didn't have the highest of expectations for the former 2011 first-round pick. After all, Jones isn't exactly in his prime anymore, sitting four years removed from his most recent 1,000-yard campaign and Pro Bowl appearance.

Still, that didn't stop some of the fanbase from hoping that joining a contender like Philadelphia could help rejuvenate Jones' career. Unfortunately, that hasn't been the case.

After catching a touchdown in just his second game as an Eagle, Jones has been held out of the end zone in the seven subsequent games. He hasn't even hit the 10-yard mark in a single game, averaging a career-worst 3.9 receiving yards on seven receptions. His 53.8% catch percentage is also the worst mark of his career.

Jones is also a free agent once the season ends and even if the Eagles go on to win Super Bowl LVIII, there's little reason to believe he'll make much of an impact on the road there. In other words, don't count on an encore in 2024.
