NFL Free Agency: Former Eagles First-Round Pick Andre Dillard Back On The Market

NFL Free Agency: Former Eagles First-Round Pick Andre Dillard Back On The Market Eric Hartline, USA Today Sports

A former Eagles first-round pick is back on the free agent market.

The Titan released offensive tackle Andre Dillard on Friday afternoon.

That’s a bit of a surprise given that they just signed him last offseason to a deal that seemed to indicate they valued him as a starter (9.6 million AAV).

The move comes just one week after the NFL awarded the Eagles a fifth-round pick (#171 overall) in the upcoming draft for having lost Dillard in free agency last year.

For the Titans, is just under $3 million in cap space (per OverTheCap) for a player that had his worst season in the NFL last year when he appeared in all 16 games for them (starting 10).

For the Eagles, that could mean some valuable depth has hit the market. The Eagles still haven’t made many moves in regards to an offensive line that is losing at least two of their depth players in addition to Jason Kelce – and Andre Dillard is very familiar with Jeff Stoutland.

In fact, the Eagles had refused to trade Dillard for multiple seasons despite inquiries from other teams. If the market for Dillard isn’t there, there may not be a better place for him to rebuild his value than on Philly’s offensive line. Likewise, the Eagles could benefit from adding a veteran with experience in the Birds’ locker room as well as someone who would provide the same depth the Eagles were unwilling to trade just two seasons ago.

Dillard’s free agent market is yet to be seen, so it’s quite possible multiple teams would like to take a flier on him, however it’s not known if he’d get a chance to compete for a starting position with any team at this point.
