NFL Rumors: Could Eagles add free agent pass-rusher for playoff push?

This time last season, Eagles GM Howie Roseman signed Linval Joseph and Ndamukong Suh to help mitigate injuries and aid their playoff push.

Philadelphia could look to make a similar move this year. Former All-Pro DE and two-time Super Bowl champion Jason Pierre-Paul remains on the open market, and according to reports, he’s willing to join a contender on their practice squad.

Pierre-Paul, 34, last played with Baltimore in 2022 and spent four years with Tampa Bay prior, earning Pro Bowl honors in 2020. JPP recorded just 3.0 sacks, five tackles for loss, and three QB hits during his Ravens stint, but his extensive postseason experience could bode well for the Eagles.

Haason Redick and Josh Sweat lead Philly’s pass-rushers with 7.5 and 6.5 sacks, respectively, with Brandon Graham, Patrick Johnson, and rookie Nolan Smith rotating in. Seven-year veteran Derek Barnett was a healthy inactive heading into Week 9, so the Eagles could use another body to eat snaps on defense.

You can never have enough DL depth, and Roseman has shown the willingness to add talent mid-season. Pierre Paul has 94.5 sacks, 167 QB hits, and 21 forced fumbles across his 13-year career.
