After an epic collapse to end their promising season, the Philadelphia Eagles decided to make some changes. Head coach Nick Sirianni will stick around — for now — but will again be hiring two new coordinators. Last year, it was because Shane Steichen and Jonathan Gannon each got head coaching gigs following their work. This time, Sean Desai and Brian Johnson were each let go.

Desai was the first to be handed his pink slip, which was expected when he lost his play-calling duties late in the year. As for Johnson, the offensive coordinator went from a potential head coaching candidate to someone looking for a fresh start.

Their departure means there will be changes in Philadelphia which has these six offensive players sitting in a tough spot. 

6. Cam Jurgens, G

Cam Jurgens won the starting right guard job in 2023 but he was the lowest-graded member of the line according to Pro Football Focus in 2023. To be fair to him, he did deal with some injuries throughout the year but his play when healthy left something to be desired.

His main struggles were in pass protection which was where he stood out as a rookie — albeit on a very small sample size.

Going forward, Jurgens could have even more pressure on him. With Jason Kelce deciding to retire, Jurgens could move to center, which is where he played at Nebraska. In the end, that could prove to be what turns him into a star, but for now, he has something to prove.
