2. Add a Real WR3 Threat

Olamide Zaccheaus, Quez Watkins and Julio Jones are not sufficient wide receiver depth.

The Eagles have one of the league's best WR duos in A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith, but in the modern NFL you need more than three receivers that you can count on.

With salary limitations we won't be adding an elite WR3 or anything, but there's a lot of middle ground between "elite" and Zaccheaus.

Someone like Kendrick Bourne, DJ Chark or Josh Reynolds could really do the trick. They'll cost significantly more than the roughly $1 million Zaccheaus commanded last year, but Pro Football Focus projects that trio to land in the $5-8 million per year range.

If Howie Roseman can't make those salaries work, there are still guys like K.J. Osborn and Noah Brown who would slot in just fine while being a little more affordable.

A mid-round rookie may be interesting, but we need someone who can contribute right away. To me, that means grabbing a reliable veteran for the WR3 spot.
