3. Kevin Byard, Safety

There's a reason the Eagles can remain contenders year after year and also rebuild in a hurry — Howie Roseman. He continues to do an excellent job with building the team's roster and he's never afraid to go for a splash.

He proved this again in 2023 as he traded for Kevin Byard at the deadline despite having the best record in the NFL at the time. He also went all-in on Shaq Leonard, trying to bolster their linebacker corps. While other teams near the top seemed content with their rosters, Roseman just continued to look for ways to improve.

Byard, a two-time All-Pro safety during his tenure with the Tennessee Titans, made his first appearance for Philly in Week 8 which wound up being a win for the Eagles. But it was one of their many wins that was too close for comfort.

Afterward, Byard was rather harsh in his assessment. He felt the secondary should have been better against the Washington Commanders and said the defensive "didn't live up to that standard" — which he felt all defenders should have.

Going into 2024, the Eagles would surely like Byard to be a part of their plans. But if he still feels as though the secondary isn't talented enough, perhaps he joins Reddick as someone asking to see if there's another option out there for him.
