EAGLES RG UP FOR GRABS: TYLER STEEN LEADER AS OTA’S START!

By Max Harper

The Eagles allowed Sua Opeta to depart in free agency to the Bucs, and Cam Jurgens is slotted to center to replace retired legend Jason Kelce (which was the plan when Jurgens was first drafted).

That means that the RG job is again there for the taking, and Tyler Steen is the front-runner.

In his admittedly small sample size of work in 2023, Steen did not receive high marks from Pro Football Focus, which assigned him a poor overall grade of 53.2 and a laughably low 21.9 pass-blocking mark (PFF also charged him with six pressures allowed).

His top competition for the job could come in the form of free agent acquisition Matt Hennessy, whom the Eagles added on a one-year deal in March. Hennessy missed the entirety of the 2023 campaign due to a knee injury, and he appeared in just 175 snaps in 2022, all of which came as a left guard for the Falcons.

Day 3 rookies Trevor Keegan and Dylan McMahon could also push Steen for playing time at right guard.
