The Philadelphia Eagles have been through a lot this offseason, while losing some of their star players from the previous season, they managed to still retain key starters. One of the most notable updates is Darius Slay’s unexpected return to the team, just hours after he appeared to be saying goodbye.

Starters Sticking Around

The players that the Eagles managed to retain in addition to Slay were center Jason Kelce, cornerback James Bradberry, defensive end Brandon Graham, defensive tackle Fletcher Cox, and running back Boston Scott. These players are critical to the Eagles’ success in the upcoming season, and their experience and leadership will undoubtedly play a huge role in the team’s performance.

Key Losses

However, the Eagles also had some significant losses in the offseason. Defensive tackle Javon Hargrave moved to the 49ers, running back Miles Sanders headed to the Panthers, linebacker Kyzir White signed with the Cardinals, linebacker TJ Edwards joined the Bears, and safety Marcus Epps went to the Raiders. These departures have left some significant holes in the Eagles’ roster, and they will need to find suitable replacements if they hope to compete at the highest level.

Despite these losses, the Eagles managed to make one significant addition to their squad, acquiring running back Rashaad Penny from the Seattle Seahawks. Penny’s speed and agility could be a significant asset to the team, and he could provide some much-needed depth at the running back position after the departure of Sanders to Carolina.

Overall, general manager Howie Roseman did a great job keeping the core together.

With the start of the new season slowly approaching, the Eagles will be hoping that their offseason moves pay off, and they can replicate the success of their Super Bowl team of 2022.
