Check out who ESPN.com suggests as an out-of-the-box free agent for the Eagles:

Adam Thielen, WR | Position rank: 18th

Thielen, who finished with 69 catches for 967 yards and five touchdowns while dropping only three passes, had a breakout season in 2016 with Minnesota.

He was a reliable target for Vikings quarterback Sam Bradford, and that same short and intermediate reliability is a must for the Eagles’ offense and QB Carson Wentz.

Thielen, who’s a restricted free agent, doesn’t solve all issues at the skill positions, but he can play the much-needed role of possession receiver as Wentz continues to develop as the Eagles’ franchise quarterback.
