Nelson Agholor, Candidate for contract restructure

Agholor finished the 2021 regular season with 37 catches (on 64 targets) for 473 yards and three touchdowns in 15 games

Analysis: As Paul Perillo of the Patriots' official site points out, Agholor, who logged regular snaps alongside Jakobi Meyers and Kendrick Bourne, showed flashes in his first season with the team, but lacked consistency. With that in mind, Perillo suggests that the 28-year-old's contract (which calls for a cap hit of almost $15 million next season) makes him a candidate for a restructure this offseason. At this stage though, we'd expect Agholor, Jakobi Meyers (who is a pending restricted free agent) and Kendrick Bourne (signed through 2023) to all be back in 2022, but it wouldn't surprise us if New England looks to add a playmaking wideout or two (via trade, free agency or the draft) in the coming months.

Corey Clement, Sees limited touches in 2021

Clement finished the regular season with 33 carries for 140 rushing yards and six catches on seven targets for 29 yards and a touchdown.

Analysis: While he suited up for all 17 games in his first season with Dallas, Clement was mainly used on special teams and saw double-digit snaps on offense only three times. He was able to score his only TD against his former club the Eagles in Week 18, however. A free agent in the offseason, Clement could return to the Cowboys but will fill a depth role in the backfield wherever he ends up in 2022.

Quez Watkins, Could be No. 2 receiver next year

Eagles coach Nick Sirianni said Watkins can be on of the better No. 2 receivers in the league, Mike Kaye of The Newark Star-Ledger reports.

Analysis: The 2020 sixth-round pick doesn't have the stats to back that up, but he did take a huge step forward after a quiet rookie season, showing a knack for big plays and high-difficulty catches. Jalen Reagor, a first-round pick from the same draft, can't say the same, which is part of the reason Sirianni referred to him as the team's No. 3 receiver when talking with reporters Wednesday. Of course, the Eagles could also draft or sign someone to push both Watkins and Reagor down the depth chart, but Sirianni's words do support the notion of Watkins at least being the third guy next year. Watkins finished 2021 with a 43-647-1 receiving line on 62 targets, while Reagor managed just 33-299-2 on 57 looks.

Jalen Hurts, Gets vote of confidence from GM

Eagles GM Howie Roseman said Hurts (ankle) has shown enough to keep his job as the starting quarterback, Zach Berman of The Athletic reports.

Analysis: The Eagles have the requisite cap space and draft picks to pursue an upgrade, but Roseman said his plan for the offseason is to build around Hurts, who went 8-7-0 as a starter in 2021 and finished the regular season with 3,144 passing yards, 784 rushing yards, 26 total touchdowns and 11 turnovers. While he placed just 26th among 31 qualified passers in completion percentage (61.3), Hurts was above-average at avoiding sacks and turnovers, in addition to leading all QBs in rushing yards and rushing TDs (10). That's solid work for an age-23 season, especially given that Hurts has been stuck with a different coaching staff four straight years dating back to college. He'll now have continuity with HC Nick Sirianni and OC Shane Steichen, as well as WR DeVonta Smith and TE Dallas Goedert. First, Hurts figures to take some time to rest and recover, hoping to avoid offseason surgery on the ankle he initially injured in late November.

Zach Ertz, Racks up 74 receptions in 2021

Ertz posted 74 catches (on 112 targets) for 763 yards and five touchdowns in 17 games between the Eagles and Cardinals during the 2021 campaign.

Analysis: One day removed from the Eagles' Week 6 loss to the Buccaneers on Thursday Night Football, the only team Ertz ever knew shipped him to the desert after eight-plus mostly fruitful campaigns. At the time of his arrival in Arizona, he only had an 18-189-2 line on 31 targets through six games, so his final marks are telling for his increasing importance as the months wore on. The biggest catalyst in Ertz's revival was an injured DeAndre Hopkins, who missed eight of the final 10 games (including playoffs) with hamstring and knee issues. Kyler Murray turned to Ertz often, especially during a four-game stretch Weeks 15-18, when he earned 43 targets and eventually matched the franchise record for catches by a tight end in a single season with 56. After Sunday's wild-card loss to the Rams, Ertz told Darren Urban of the Cardinals' official site that he "would love to be a part" of the team moving forward, but the upcoming unrestricted free agent likely will be fielding multiple offers from other organizations as of mid-March.
