The Philadelphia Eagles constructed a very impressive roster, and head coach Doug Pederson did a phenomenal job of extracting the best out of his players every single week, but like we saw with the Broncos after Super Bowl 50 — all good things must come to an end.
This is not to say the Eagles will not be ‘good’ again next season, but their roster will look a lot different.
