The Philadelphia Eagles were not messing around this offseason and made a couple of huge moves to upgrade their roster. Signing wide receiver AJ Brown and cornerback James Bradberry not only got the fans excited, but it also earned the Eagles a top-10 spot in Peter King's NFL power rankings.

Philadelphia checks in at No. 9 overall, which is behind only three other teams in the NFC. The Eagles are also six spots higher than the next closest team in the NFC East (Dallas Cowboys) and ahead of notable squads such as the San Francisco 49ers (No. 10) as well as the Tennessee Titans (No. 11).

King made it clear that he believes adding Brown to the mix on offense will help quarterback Jalen Hurts tremendously. It's a logical argument considering the Pro Bowl wideout has racked up over 3,000 yards since entering the league in 2019 and averages 16.2 yards per reception.

What made King's explanation interesting is that he pointed out how GM Howie Roseman left the door open to make a change at QB in 2023 if things don't work out. The Eagles have three picks in the first two rounds in each of the next two drafts and enough assets to make a blockbuster trade, too.

Philadelphia has made the playoffs in four of the last five seasons, but the Eagles haven't come out on top in a postseason contest since 2018. The new guys in town could go a long way in bucking that trend. The Eagles currently have odds set at +2800 to win Super Bowl 57, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
