5. Jack Stoll, TE

There’s no denying the Eagles are set with their starting tight end. Dallas Goedert is more than capable and even though he didn’t have his best campaign in 2023, he still had 592 yards receiving and three touchdowns. He also continued to be a trusted option on critical third-down plays.

What he doesn’t get enough credit for is his blocking. Goedert remains one of the top run-blocking tight ends in the NFL. 

The problem for the Eagles is they don’t have a lot of depth behind him. This past season, Jack Stoll received the most snaps behind Goedert and the former undrafted free agent technically had 10 starts. Still, he finished with just five catches for 38 yards on the year.

Entering his fourth season in the league, Stoll is a restricted free agent meaning the Eagles can sign him to a tender and match any contract he might receive. There would be reason to keep him around since he knows the offense and is a solid blocker in his own right. However, the change in coordinators could shake things up.

We all know the NFL is a passing league and there’s a good chance whoever lands the job will want to open the offense up. That could lead to Philadelphia allowing Stoll to walk in favor of a tight end who can impact the receiving game.
