The offseason is officially underway for the Philadelphia Eagles, which means we’re going to spend a lot time talking about free agents and the draft until training camp finally gets here in July. But when we’re playing fantasy GM, seldom do we think about how the club should go about building out the back end of the roster.
Every year, there are a number of veteran players who will head into the training camp on the roster bubble. For some, the future is a foregone conclusion. Others may have one final opportunity to change their destiny and stick in Philadelphia or the NFL a bit longer.
We know already which ones will have a battle on their hands come the opening of another camp at the NovaCare Complex. Whether it’s because they’re aging, their contracts will soon be up or they’re just not cutting it, the following eight players will have to show head coach Chip Kelly something this summer in order to stick around for another season.
