2. Brandon Graham, EDGE

Brandon Graham has been with the Philadelphia Eagles since 1984 at this point, so seeing him leave would be a tough pill for longtime fans of the team to swallow.

In all seriousness, Graham has been with the Eagles for what feels like forever. He was a first-round pick back in 2010, and despite some tough years to open his career in Philly, the Eagles stuck with him and he ended up being a key piece of their Super Bowl run back in the 2017 season.

Graham has always been a solid rotational piece off the edge, and even got some Comeback Player of the Year votes last season for the Eagles. He's been a core leader on this Philadelphia team and heading into his age 36 season, it might be time for both sides to say goodbye.

Although it isn't Sean Desai's fault that Graham could lose his roster spot in Philadelphia, the timing just might be right. Graham finished the 2023 season playing just 395 total snaps, the lowest number he's played since early in his career. He had 11 pressures, 6 QB hits, and 3.0 sacks among those snaps, so there's still a good amount of effectiveness there.

Perhaps he'll re-up with Philadelphia on a one-year deal, but I wouldn't be shocked if we've seen the last of him in Philly.
