Eagles’ Offseason Leads to One Inevitable Conclusion:
Super Bowl LVIII Champions
Philadelphia sticks with its philosophy of taking risks that make sense, regardless of perception, and should be favored to win the Lombardi Trophy in 2024.
Brandon Graham, center Jason Kelce and defensive tackle Fletcher Cox—all chose to embark on another run over retirement.
The Eagles also re-signed several important players: Lane Johnson, whom Roseman called “maybe the best right tackle in NFL history” last February; cornerback Darius Slay, who told reporters he took less money to remain in Philadelphia; corner James Bradberry, who had an All-Pro 2022 season and the overblown LVII criticism; and running back Boston Scott.
Roseman even added pieces: another back (Rashaad Penny) for depth, two safeties (Terrell Edmunds, Justin Evans) to shore up the defensive backfield, and an above-average backup quarterback (Marcus Mariota) and a cornerback whose first name embodied their approach (Greedy Williams).
