Eagles earn an ‘A’ in Yardbarker’s offseason rankings & respect, nationally

Posted on June 15, 2022 - Last Updated on June 17, 2022

Life is relatively quiet and happy for Eagles and their fans as they wait for training camp.

The Eagles feel great about their draft class and free-agent acquisitions.

Others have noticed, too.

The Eagles received a grade of “A” in Yardbarker’s grades of each NFL team’s offseason moves. 

They were one of four teams earning the “A” along with Buffalo, Denver and Miami. The Los Angeles Chargers, received an “A-minus.”

Interestingly, the Eagles are the only NFC team with the top grade.

Guessing that general manager Howie Roseman won’t take a victory lap over these rankings, but he would be entitled.

Since the AFC is perceived as the stronger conference, the rich got richer with four AFC teams landing the top grades. Buffalo was considered a Super Bowl favorite before the offseason began. Denver added Russell Wilson. Miami picked up Tyreek Hill.

The Eagles were a surprise team last year, but it won’t be a surprise if they have even better results after their strong offseason moves.

“The draft-day addition of A.J. Brown was spectacular for young Jalen Hurts, completing what could be one of the more dynamic offenses in the league with DeVonta Smith and a bevy of running backs keeping defenses on their heels.

Not many teams will be able to run on the Eagles after the team drafted Jordan Davis and Nakobe Dean to plug up the middle, while the signings of Haason Reddick and James Bradberry should greatly improve the pass defense.


Dallas (C):The salary cap eventually comes for every team, even the free-spending Cowboys. Dallas suffered notable losses like Amari Cooper, Cedrick Wilson, La’el Collins, and Randy Gregory.

Giants (C-plus):Daniel Jones is set for yet another coaching change, and the Giants hope they finally got this one right with former Bills offensive coordinator Brian Daboll.

Washington (C-minus):Washington entered the offseason with a desperate situation at quarterback. Taking on Carson Wentz’s contract stands as a giant risk that smells of desperation after he was all but run out of Philadelphia and Indianapolis.
