Philadelphia Eagles Projected To Land Kansas City Chiefs All-Pro In Massive Offseason Addition

The Philadelphia Eagles are heading into a season with plenty of pressure considering how the end of 2023 panned out.

The Eagles, and general manager Howie Roseman, have never been shy about spending big to fill big holes on the roster, and this offseason might not be any different.Ezoic

After watching the secondary regress dramatically over the second half of the 2023 season, including a postseason loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers that was marred by poor tackling in the secondary, it wouldn’t be surprising to see Roseman take some big swings to overhaul Philadelphia’s cornerback room.

Roseman is nothing if not aggressive, both in-season and when it comes to retooling the roster on the fly during the offseason.

In recent years, the Philadelphia Eagles have added star wide receiver A.J. Brown in a draft weekend trade with the Tennessee Titans, dropped veteran cornerbacks James Bradberry and Darius Slay into the secondary, swapped draft picks for running back D’Andre Swift, signed veterans such as Ndamukong Suh, Julio Jones, and others, to name a few of Roseman’s bold moves the past several seasons.

As free agency nears, the Eagles are projected to have just over $19.92 million in cap space, according to OverTheCap. That’s before cap-saving moves such as restructuring the contracts of high-priced veterans or clearing cap space by releasing underperforming players such as safety Kevin Byard.

With an obvious need for help on the back end and new defensive coordinator Vic Fangio running the show, one NFL expert believes the Eagles will look to the Super Bowl champions to make a major offseason splash.

One of the most difficult decisions the Chiefs face is whether they can afford to keep cornerback L’Jarius Sneed. According to, Sneed is expected to earn a four-year, $65 million contract this offseason.

As it stands, there doesn’t appear to be a clear path for the Kansas City Chiefs to keep superstar defensive tackle Chris Jones and Sneed. ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler wrote, “Re-signing free agents Chris Jones and L’Jarius Sneed seems ambitious, so Kansas City should prioritize one and go from there. Because the entire pass rush is built around Jones, let’s start there.”

Sneed, who led the Chiefs in interceptions and passes defensed this season, won’t flounder in free agency. If Kansas City prioritizes Jones, NFL insider Matt Bowen predicts Sneed will land with Travis Kelce‘s brother’s team, the Philadelphia Eagles.

“Upgrading the cornerback position is an offseason priority in Philadelphia,” Bowen wrote. “With Sneed, the Eagles land one of the top veteran free agents, who has the coverage skills and ability to produce in Vic Fangio’s system.”

If Sneed can’t stay in Kansas City, landing with a fellow Super Bowl contender like the Philadelphia Eagles seems like a solid backup plan.

The Kansas City Chiefs have 19 pending unrestricted free agents, and according to, Kansas City has $22.6 million in cap space. Even with the expected league-wide cap raise, Chiefs general manager philadelphia eagles, Kansas City chiefs Brett Veach can’t afford to keep everyone.

The Chiefs’ fourth-round pick from the 2020 NFL draft has spent his entire career in Kansas City. While the two-time Super Bowl champ would love to stay, Sneed understands this is a business. At age 27, this is Sneed’s best chance to secure the bag.

This won’t be a cheap move for the Eagles as L’Jarius Sneed has made it known publicly he wants to get paid this offseason, but if feels like the right one.
