Potential Philadelphia Eagles Free Agent Pick Ups (Part 2)

We are officially one week into free agency. Already, things have been interesting when it comes to signings and trades. We saw Saquon Barkley sign with the Eagles as well as other key players like Devin White. We also saw Russell Wilson sign with the Pittsburgh Steelers and then a few days later, Kenny Pickett was traded to the Eagles only for the Steelers to trade for Justin Fields from the Chicago Bears.

With the NFL Draft starting on April 25th, and more players in the Free Agent pool that could make an impact. There are still some spots the Eagles need to fill position and depth-wise. Here are five more players the Eagles could potentially sign from free agency.

Potential Free Agent Pick Ups for the Eagles (Part 2)

Tee Higgins, Wide Receiver

Tee Higgins was drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals in the second round of the 2020 NFL Draft. He was picked 33rd overall. Higgins got the franchise tag placed on him. But before free agency officially started, he said to the Bengals he would like to be traded. He would fit in the Eagles’ system and complement the size and speed, as well as taking pressure off of AJ Brown.

Contract: Four years, $74.4M ($18.6M per year)

Career Stats: 257 catches, 3,684 yards, 24 touchdowns

Hassan Ridgeway, Defensive Tackle

The Indianapolis Colts drafted Hassan Ridgeway in the fourth round of the 2016 NFL Draft. He was picked 116th overall. Ridgeway has spent two seasons with the Eagles. Most of his stats earned in his career were with his time spent in Philadelphia. He would have no problem fitting in with the organization if he were to return.

Contract: one year, $3.5M deal

Career Stats: Played 80 games, 114 total tackles, 57 solo tackles, 57 assisted tackles, 10.5 sacks

Boston Scott, Running Back

Boston Scott was drafted by the New Orleans Saints in the sixth round of the 2018 draft. He was picked 201st overall. Scott spent his whole career with the Eagles after they signed him off the Saints practice squad the same year he was drafted. Since coming to the Eagles, he has been a part of many impactful moments. It only makes sense for him to continue his career in Philadelphia and back up Saquon Barkley.

Contract: one year, $1.5M deal

Career Rushing: 302 carries, 1,295 yards, 16 touchdowns

Career Receiving: 71 catches, 566 yards, one touchdown

Ryan Tannehill, Quarterback

Ryan Tannehill was drafted by the Miami Dolphins in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft. He was picked eighth overall. Tannehill spent three seasons in Miami, where he had a rough start to his career. Once he got to Tennessee he started to progress and have success. Leading the Tennessee Titans to the playoffs, He has a 2-3 playoff record. He is now being put into the backup quarterback role and would be a good fit for the Eagles.

Contract: one year, $4.9M deal

Career Stats: 3,063/4,764, 34,881 yards, 216 touchdowns, 115 interceptions

Calais Campbell, Defensive End

Calais Campbell was drafted by the Arizona Cardinals in the second round of the 2008 NFL Draft. He was picked 50th overall after spending his first eight seasons with the Cardinals. Campbell decided to go into free agency. He would go and play three seasons with the Jacksonville Jaguars, and his last four seasons with the Baltimore Ravens. And now, he has decided to enter free agency in 2024. Campbell’s accomplishments do make him a first-ballot Hall of Famer. The one career accomplishment he is yet to add is a Super Bowl ring, which is the one thing that could be on his mind and keeping him from retiring. The Eagles are a team that Campbell could do so with how much the Eagles have built their team this off-season.

Contract: one year, $4.5M deal

Career Stats: 244 Games Played, 106 sacks, 866 tackles, 606 solo tackles, 251 assisted, 16 forced fumbles, three interceptions
