Philadelphia Eagles receive high marks for offseason moves, ranking 6th in NFL

The Philadelphia Eagles’ offseason has been full of big moves.

The franchise said goodbye to two stalwarts with the retirements of center Jason Kelce and defensive tackle Fletcher Cox, but also brought in running back Saquon Barkley, extended wide receivers A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith, and went wild trading up, down, and across at the NFL Draft.

Overall, the Eagles’ offseason has earned high marks from the media, and Vinnie Iyer of The Sporting News ranked Philadelphia’s offseason as No. 6 across the league, giving the Eagles an “A-“ grade for their effort.

Here’s what Iyer wrote about the moves the Eagles made:

The Eagles are breaking in a new offense with Kellen Moore and a new defense with Vic Fangio. They got a much-needed clean-up upgrade at running back with Barkley and then focused much of their resources in bolstering the second level for Fangio's 3-4. Mitchell and DeJean are like getting two first-rounders to fill the biggest offseason need in the secondary. GM Howie Roseman did a good job of reloading around Jalen Hurts and the key Georgia defensive pieces, while also locking up A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith.

The Eagles’ season will kick off in Brazil for an international game against the Green Bay Packers on September 6.
