With training camp just a number of weeks away, CBS Sports has ranked the NFL’s five most improved teams.
The Los Angeles Chargers, Latest York Jets, Pittsburgh Steelers and Cincinnati Bengals all cracked the list. Nonetheless, none of those teams claimed the highest spot.
CBS ranked the Philadelphia Eagles as probably the most improved team within the NFL.
For starters, the Eagles acquired a star wideout in A.J. Brown. He should form a pleasant duo with DeVonta Smith.
The Eagles also made some savvy additions in free agency, signing Haason Reddick and James Bradberry.
As if those acquisitions weren’t enough, the Eagles loaded up on defensive firepower within the NFL Draft. They chose Georgia defensive tackle Jordan Davis with their first-round pick.
Philadelphia parlayed its successful free agency into an equally successful draft that included the selections of former Georgia standouts Davis and Nakobe Dean — the latter of whom was a third-round pick who — if healthy — may at some point be remembered as a savvy Day 2 draft steal.
The Eagles made the playoffs last season of their first 12 months under Nick Sirianni.
With a greater roster at his disposal, Sirianni has a fantastic opportunity to guide Philly to a different playoff berth this upcoming season.
