A.J. Green sat out the entire 2019 season with an ankle injury for the Bengals. Projected to be a free agent, are the Philadelphia Eagles a possible suitor?

If there’s one word you had to pick to describe the Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver core in 2019, you’d likely choose words such as injured, inconsistent, and depleted. And it was just that. Top targets like Desean Jackson and Alshon Jeffery would go down with injuries leaving guys such as Robert Davis, Deontay Brunett, and Greg Ward to pick up the slack. Yet the Eagles have a chance to go into 2020 with one of the best wide receiver trios in the NFL. If there’s a time to need a wide receiver in the NFL, it’s now. The 2020 offseason is set to see names like A.J. Green and Robby Anderson hit the free-agent market. Then there’s the 2020 NFL Draft, which is expected to be the deepest wide receiver class that’s been seen in recent years.

Veteran A.J. Green is a free agent this offseason meaning the Eagles could be a prime option for him. While Green has an extensive injury history, it’s no secret that when healthy, he’s one of the best wideouts in the NFL. Green could be interested in what the Eagles have to offer as well. Set to be 32 years old in July, Green isn’t getting younger. And his chance at winning a championship is getting slimmer by the day.

The Eagles, when everyone is healthy, still have one of the best offenses in the NFL. Carson Wentz has proven he can be a franchise quarterback while tight end Zach Ertz continues to play at a high level. Then there’s the thunder and lightning duo of Miles Sanders and Jordan Howard in the backfield that combined for 1343 rushing yards in 2019.

General Manager Howie Roseman has proven that he’s willing to be aggressive when it comes to acquiring talent. If Green hits the open market in a few weeks, the Eagles have to be first in line for his services. A wide receiver trio of Green, Jeffery, and Jackson will give defensive coordinators nightmares.

The ball is in Philadelphia’s court at this point. Green in an Eagles uniform next season makes too much sense both from a talent standpoint but also a schematic perspective. In today’s NFL, you can never have too many weapons for your quarterback.

Make it happen, Mr.Roseman.
