6. Philadelphia Eagles

No matter how much they wanted to keep him around, the Philadelphia Eagles knew that Nick Foles would be too expensive, and Carson Wentz deserves to be the quarterback of the future for this team, despite some of the injures from the previous two seasons.

As great as Foles has been when needed, Wentz is the quarterback that Philadelphia wanted to build the franchise around a couple of years ago when they traded up for him in the draft, and giving up on him this early would be absolutely foolish.

Football fans remember well that Wentz was considered a strong MVP candidate back in 2017 before his knee injury took place, and there won’t be as much pressure this offseason for him to rush back like last year.

Plus, with Wentz having a new deep threat to work with in DeSean Jackson on top of the defense adding Malik Jackson, this Eagles team is already showing signs of competing for a playoff spot for the third year in a row.

Thanks to the Jacksonville Jaguars deciding to move on from Jackson, the defender has already brought a ton of excitement to the unit for Philadelphia. If opposing quarterbacks thought Fletcher Cox was a problem, just wait until they see what this defense is like with the defender teaming up with Jackson now.
