LET’S HOPE WR JUJU SMITH-SHUSTER’S ON EAGLES FREE AGENT RADAR!

By Max Harper

Free agency doesn’t start for real until March 14, when the Eagles can start negotiations.

And here’s what ESPN+ thinks:

Marcus Williams, S.

Best team fit: Eagles.

Why it makes sense: Williams will have several options as a high-level free safety with 15 interceptions and 38 pass deflections in five seasons. The Eagles’ safety unit is in transition, and the team could be willing to outbid the Saints and others.

Scheme fit: Williams is a fit for Jonathan Gannon’s defensive scheme as a post or quarters defender who has elite range — and the ball skills to make plays down the field.

42. JuJu Smith-Schuster, WR.

Best team fit: Eagles.

Why it makes sense: Smith-Schuster seems destined to leave Pittsburgh. The Chiefs were interested a year ago and could circle back. Smith-Schuster has battled knee and shoulder issues, but when healthy, he can make tough catches over the middle and is a strong blocker — which would help Eagles coach Nick Sirianni’s run-heavy attack.

Scheme fit: The Eagles have speed and vertical ability in the wide receiver room, but they are lacking a slot target with physical traits. Smith-Schuster is more explosive than you think, with the catch-and-run ability to work as a big slot in Sirianni’s offense.
