Looking back and examining the 2019 season it's easy to see some changes need to be made going forward. Some of those changes have already taken place with the offensive coordinator Mike Groh and the wide receiver coach Mike Walch being let go on January, 9th, as well as Corey Udlin the defensive back coach being hired by the Lions to be their DC. Besides the changes in the coaching staff, the Philadelphia Eagles will have to make some changes to the roster if they want to be championship contenders next season; making this upcoming free agency rather important. With that being said, today we'll take a look at some top free agency options for Philly.
1. A.J. Green WR
Getting this one out of the way ASAP, A.J. Green may be 32-years-old and coming off a season where he didn't play a single snap due to his ankle injury. Still, Green is one of the premier talents at receiver and could provide an instant boost to an Eagles team lacking strength at the position. With Nelson Agholor set to be a free agent this year, barring any changes the Eagles receivers will look like this: Alshon Jeffery, Desean Jackson, Greg Ward, and JJ Arcega-Whiteside. It's no secret that Green being amongst those names should provide quite the boost to the receiving core. Since Green is coming off of two straight seasons with injuries and is thirty-two the contract offered should be a one or two year deal at the right cost. (For reference, Green averaged $15 million last season).
Although if the Philadelphia Eagles are looking for a younger player they could show interest in Devin Funchess, Breshad Perriman, Robby Anderson or Phillip Dorsett.
