After a second straight 7-9 season, Howie Roseman and the Eagles Front Office head into the off-season looking to improve the roster.  While the Eagles in 2016 finished the NFL season ranked 10th in Rushing Touchdowns Scored (16) and 12th in Percentage of Drives Ending in an Offensive Score (33.9%), they were also 28th in Passing Touchdowns Scored (16) and 10th Worst in NFL in Dropped Passes (24 Total).

ESPN NFL Insider Adam Caplan joined Mike Gill on Wednesday and discussed the Eagles issues with their roster:

“The reality is that the roster was clearly sub par and they knew it and they are going to fix this thing…when a roster is not very good, eventually reality hits, that’s just the thought of (NFL) personnel people…We knew the Corner(backs) weren’t going to hold up, we knew the (Wide) Receivers weren’t going to hold up, and Ryan Mathews and his injury history, we knew that was going to be a factor and it was…The Eagles have the worst group of Corners and Receivers in the NFL, you can’t win like that and they know that and they are going to clean this up.”

Hear what Caplan had to say about Howie Roseman moving forward as the man in charge of the Eagles Front Office, his analysis of Doug Pederson’s first year in as Head Coach, and his expectations for the upcoming off-season
