4. Zach Cunningham

The linebacker position has been at the forefront of Philadelphia's moves this offseason. Philly has made two big additions here to hopefully improve this group after last year's struggles, bringing in both outside LB Bryce Huff and inside LB Devin White.

Meanwhile, the Eagles have been content to see 2023 contributors walk. None of the team's free agents at the position have re-signed to this point, with Nicholas Morrow heading to the Buffalo Bills, while Leonard and Zach Cunningham hope for a contract offer to come through at some point ahead of training camp.

Cunningham was another new arrival this past season, coming over after some productive seasons in Houston and Tennessee. Those past results didn't quite translate, however, with an okay 85 total tackles, just two tackles for loss, and zero sacks or forced fumbles.

With his starting experience and three previous campaigns of 100-plus tackles, Cunningham should still find somewhere for the 2024 campaign.

5. Linval Joseph

Linval Joseph was a signing similar to Leonard in 2022. The team was in the second half of the year and in need of a boost on the defensive line, so they sought out an accomplished veteran in hopes of them making an impact.

And like Leonard, the signing was better in theory, than reality. Joseph recorded just 0.5 sacks, no tackles for loss, and a single QB hit across eight starts in the regular season.

His single fumble recovery in the playoffs was his biggest contribution during the 2022 campaign, but not at all enough to make him a hot commodity heading into free agency.

Joseph then had to wait until midseason in 2023 to land another job, this time with the Buffalo Bills. More underwhelming results (1.0 sacks, 12 total tackles) have left him on the market ahead of the draft. Considering how much the former Super Bowl champ has slowed down, this may be the end of the line.
