Even though the 2023 NFL season was filled with shortcomings, the Philadelphia Eagles must re-sign these free agents this offseason to remain competitive in 2024.

3. Jack Stoll, TE

Jack Stoll is one of those players who is important to the Eagles' success even if he doesn't light up the box score.

His receiving stats aren't all that impressive. Over the last three seasons (50 games), Stoll has only been targeted 27 times for 20 receptions and 183 yards without a touchdown. However, it is worth noting that seven of his 20 catches were for a first down, highlighting his reliability.

Where Stoll truly excels is in the run game as a blocker. Of the tight ends who played at least 200 run-block snaps this season, the 26-year-old ranks fifth on PFF with a grade of 65.6. For those curious, he also ranked 24th in both 2022 (57.4) and 2023 (58.2), showing just how much of a leap he made in his third year.

Considering how important the ground game is to the Eagles' success, losing Stoll this season could hurt a lot. Other teams would kill to have a blocker like him on the roster, meaning it's up to Roseman to pay the ex-Nebraska TE what he deserves this offseason.
