Best fits for remaining 2020 NFL free agents: Picking teams for Cam Newton, Jadeveon Clowney, more - ESPN+
Mark Barron, LB. Fowler: Eagles. Barron doesn’t have elite speed but is still capable in coverage. The Eagles can add a situational linebacker to help with their third-down defense, and linebacker is an area in which Philly could add depth. [...] Jason Peters, OT. Yates: Eagles. There seems to be some buzz surrounding a return to Philly for Peters, who will immediately take back over at the left tackle spot. Andre Dillard, a first-round pick in 2019, has plenty of promise, but his rookie season came with hurdles. Peters back to the Eagles adds up.

Eagles Rookie Profile: 6 things to know about Elijah Riley - BGN
Elijah Riley is a solid DB, arguably one of the best in the past 10 years at Army. He was a career starter and was making stops even as a freshman against Notre Dame and during the famed Army Navy matchups. He totaled 201 tackles (the most by any academy CB), seven interceptions, and 28 pass breakups over the past four years. He was also a semifinalist for the Jim Thorpe award [which is awarded to the best defensive back in college football].

A look at the Eagles’ players over 30, and their succession plan for each - PhillyVoice
DE Brandon Graham (32): In Graham’s first five years in the league, his snap counts were fairly low. Over the last five years, he has put more mileage on the odometer. The Eagles can probably only expect two more starting seasons out of Graham, and because pass rushers tend to take a while to develop into good starters, the sooner the better on filling that pipeline with more talent. The Eagles badly need for Derek Barnett to show that they can rely on him to be a long-term answer opposite Graham, or they’re going to be in a situation in which they’re overpaying for pass rush talent in free agency.

Roob’s never-too-early 2020 Eagles predictions - NBCSP
1. The surprise leading WR: Greg Ward began last year on the practice squad and didn’t play on offense until Week 11. But he caught 31 passes the last seven games, which was only 12 off the team lead by a WR for the entire season. Despite him not playing until Week 11. Ward was really the Eagles’ only reliable WR the last month and a half of the season, and that won’t be the case this coming season. But he runs such good routes out of the slot and has such good hands and knows how to get open, and Carson Wentz clearly likes throwing to him. Prediction: Ward leads all Eagles WRs with 62 catches.
