With NFL free agency rapidly approaching, teams are preparing to make moves that will set them on the right course in 2021. Some very intriguing players will hit the open market this offseason, and it'll be revealed soon where some of those big names land.
ProFootballFocus predicts one of these interesting free agent to sign with the Philadelphia Eagles -- former Los Angeles Chargers QB Tyrod Taylor.
Tyrod Taylor Eagles
With Carson Wentz officially traded, the Eagles are set to begin building around 2019 second-round pick Jalen Hurts. While the team has moves to make that would set Hurts up for success, there's no telling how he'll perform as a full-time starter in 2021, so nabbing a capable veteran backup should be a focus for Philly in free agency.
While Taylor has been a backup for the past three seasons, he threw for 8,857 yards and 51 TDs (with 16 INTs) in 43 starts for the Buffalo Bills from 2015-2017. He certainly could step in if needed, and he offers a similar dual-threat skillset as Hurts, so the team would already have the pieces in place in case Taylor is called upon.
Obviously, with their once-franchise QB traded away, Eagles fans are hoping Hurts is the team's long-term answer. Philadelphia could take a quarterback at No. 6, but spending that pick on a receiving weapon makes more sense for the Hurts era, so signing a veteran backup capable of stepping in like Taylor would be a better use of the Eagles' limited assets this offseason.
