Eagles roster outlook: position-by-position.

NFL: International Series-Philadelphia Eagles at Jacksonville Jaguars Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

The 2019 NFL offseason has begun for the Philadelphia Eagles, which means Howie Roseman and Doug Pederson will spend the next couple of weeks evaluating the 2018 roster. It’s time to start figuring out what this team needs to do to get back to the Super Bowl. Today we’ll continue this roster outlook series by looking at the long snapper position. Yes, really.

THE PLAYER

RICK LOVATO

Stats: 1 special teams tackles, 1 assisted special teams tackle

Review: According to BGN’s Lee Sifford, Pro Football Focus had Lovato as their eighth best graded long snapper in 2018. Lovato didn’t hasn’t had any egregiously bad snaps since joining Philly. He’s performed well enough to be this team’s long-term answer at the position.

Outlook: The 26-year-old Lovato is set to be a free agent when the new league year starts. The Eagles should look to sign him to a multi-year extension before then.
