Updated look at Eagles’ offseason roster following first waves of free agency

The first wave of the 2023 NFL free agency process has begun, with the Eagles quietly retooling their roster by restocking homegrown talent.

The new league year began Wednesday at 4 p.m. ET, meaning free-agent signings could be made official afterward. Philadelphia had seven key contributors land lucrative deals elsewhere on the open market.

The Eagles retained six free agents while adding three new players, including former Atlanta Falcons quarterback Marcus Mariota who reached an agreement early Friday morning on a one-year, $5 million deal worth up to $8 million.

With the second week of the free agency process set to begin, here’s an updated look at the current offseason roster ahead of the NFL draft.

Reddick will enter year two of a 3-year, $45 million contract, and if he can match his 16.5 sacks from 2022, he could look to reset the market.

Brown logged 1,496 yards receiving in his first year with the Eagles and will look to take things to the next level.

The Third year running back will look to take the next step as a dual threat while sharing the role with Rashaad Penny.

After taking a step back in year three, Watkins will look to re-establish himself in the Eagles’ passing game.

#17 LB Nakobe Dean

Dean will see an uptick in snaps next season. Depending on how things shake out in free agency, the former Georiga All-American could return to the NovaCare Complex as Philadelphia’s starting MIKE or WILL linebacker.

#18 WR Britain Covey

Covey made the practice squad as an undrafted rookie and had 33 punt returns and ten kick returns for the Eagles this season, acting as the Eagles’ primary return man on the punt team and the second-leading kickoff returner.

Covey finished with over 500 yards between kick and punt returns and didn’t cost Philadelphia any games by putting the football on the ground.

#19 QB Ian Book

Chachere spent time on the Eagles’ practice squad and active roster, playing in seven games in 2022 and contributing 141 special teams snaps and another ten on defense. He had two tackles on defense and three on special teams.

The third-year cornerback is a vital member of the special teams unit and will look to see more snaps on the outside.

The former Alabama cornerback went undrafted but made enough of an impression to make the 53-man roster and 11 appearances this season.

Jobe played 220 special teams snaps but finished with just one tackle.

With James Bradberry returning, Jobe will look to earn the third outside cornerback job.

The former Middle Tennesee State safety saw action in 10 games with four starts after making the Eagles’ 53-man roster as an undrafted free agent.

Blankenship finished with 34 tackles, two passes defended, and one interception in a talented secondary.

With Marcus Epps and C.J. Gardner-Johnson hitting free agency, Blankenship has all the looks of a starter in 2023.

San Francisco selected the Ohio State product in the third round of the 2021 NFL Draft, with Sermon lasting one season in the Bay Area, before being waived and landing with the Eagles.

Sermon had just two carries for 19 yards on the season, but he offers potential with athleticism and elite size for the position. He will compete with Rashaad Penny, Kenneth Gainwell, and Boston Scott for carries.

Jurgens was Jason Kelce’s handpicked successor, but it’ll be on the future Hall of Fame center to decide when he’ll walk away.

Jurgens was dominant when pressed into action during the preseason, and he’ll slide over to guard after Isaac Seumalo agrees to a deal with the Steelers.

Robinson went undrafted in 2022 after playing college ball at Oklahoma; he lined up at guard and tackle there, starting 38 games during his tenure as a Sooner.

Signed by Philadelphia in 2019 as an undrafted free agent of FCS powerhouse Weber State University, Opeta has spent time on the practice squad and made the 53-man roster this season.

Opeta appeared in seven games this season for Philadelphia, logging 92 offensive snaps at guard, allowing three pressures, and a 38.1 grade from PFF.

#81 TE Grant Calcaterra

The former Oklahoma and SMU pass catcher saw action in 15 games, with two starts, while Dallas Goedert was injured.

Calcaterra caught five passes for 81 yards as a rookie in an offense dominated by Goedert and other pass catchers.

Calcaterra has a relationship with Jalen Hurts from their time at Oklahoma, and Philadelphia can be especially dangerous on offense when multiple tight ends are in the lineup.

#82 WR Devon Allen

Mandatory Credit: Scott Galvin-USA TODAY Sports

Allen signed with the Eagles as a free agent during the 2022 offseason after a six-year hiatus competing as an Olympic hurdler.

He has one 55-yard touchdown against the Browns and will be excellent on special teams when called up.

#84 WR Greg Ward

Initially signed by the Eagles as a rookie free agent in 2017, Ward started this season on the Injured Reserve list with a toe injury before he was added to the practice squad in October. He was elevated from the practice squad for Super Bowl LVII.

#85 WR Tyrie Cleveland

A 2020 seventh-round draft pick out of the University of Florida, Cleveland played in 23 career games for the Broncos, amassing 91 yards on nine receptions.

Cleveland made six appearances this season, mainly on special teams.

His most recent game action came in Week 10 for the Broncos, when he saw three targets in a loss to the Titans, as Denver was without starting wide receivers Jerry Jeudy (ankle) and KJ Hamler (hamstring), who was sidelined by injury.

Goedert was on track to be an All-Pro before Week 10, leading NFL tight ends in yards and yards after the catch before his shoulder injury suffered in the November 14 loss to Washington.

He finished the regular season with 55 receptions for 702 yards and three touchdowns while logging ten catches for 81 yards and scoring in the playoff wins over New York and San Francisco.

#89 TE Jack Stoll

#90 DT Jordan Davis

The former Georgia All-American saw action in 13 games and made five starts during a promising rookie season.

Davis was dominant during the preseason but saw his momentum slowed by an ankle injury in Week 8.

The Eagles traded up to grab the defensive tackle, and he made plays logging 14 tackles, one quarterback pressure, and one pass defended with zero missed tackles.

Philadelphia has four free-agent defensive tackles, and Davis will surely be a starter in 2023 with more of an impact.

#93 DT Milton Williams

Mandatory Credit: Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports

Williams was a part of the Eagles’ deep rotation of tackles and defensive ends, improving from his rookie season.

Williams logged four sacks, 6 QB hits, and 9 TFLs, and was one of the only players at his position to earn such a stat line without starting a game.

That’ll change in 2023.

A star offensive tackle with the Calgary Stampeders, Good-Jones originally signed with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent out of Iowa State after the 2020 NFL draft and was released following training camp.

With Calgary in 2021, Good-Jones played in seven regular-season games, starting seven at right tackle.
