The Philadelphia Eagles had perhaps the best roster in the entire NFL in 2022.

That roster helped Philadelphia to a 14-3 record, which was tied for the best in the league, and an appearance in Super Bowl 57.

Though they eventually lost that game to the Kansas City Chiefs, the Eagles remained optimistic that it won’t be their last Super Bowl appearance in the coming years.

That’s because general manager Howie Roseman did everything in his power to keep Philadelphia’s loaded roster in tact.

Roseman re-signed key defensive players such as Darius Slay and Fletcher Cox. He also signed superstar quarterback Jalen Hurts to a massive five-year contract extension.

But Philly wasn’t able to hold on to everybody.

Safety CJ Gardner-Johnson, who led the league in interceptions, joined the Detroit Lions in free agency. While Pro Bowl running back Miles Sanders landed with the Panthers in Carolina.

The Eagles did their best to find replacements, including signing former Seahawks running back Rashaad Penny to fill the void Sanders left.

But it turns out they may not be done yet. Roseman could yet be on the verge of reeling in a massive fish.

Akbar Gbajabiamila, who played in the NFL from 2003-2008 and is now the co-host of The Talk on CBS and hosts American Ninja Warrior on NBC, dropped a bomb early Saturday morning.

Gbajabiamila reported that Tennessee Titans superstar running back Derrick Henry was headed to Philly. Henry is a three-time Pro Bowler and led the league in rushing in 2019 and 2020.

Philly, who is tight on cap space, would need to get flexible to land Henry and his $16 million cap hit. But he has just one year left on his contract and would turn an already loaded roster into a juggernaut.

However, fans seemed skeptical of Gbajabiamila’s reporting.

Gbajabiamila, who shares an agent with Henry, didn’t back off of his reporting.

If Henry lands in Philly, you may just want to start making the Super Bowl rings already.
