By GREG CANDLEMORE An article published in ESPN’s “Fantasy Football Insider” article is an in-depth look at how the Philadelphia Eagles have transformed their team and their football identity in the past three seasons.
In the article, the Eagles were able to turn around their fortunes after being drafted by the Cleveland Browns in the third round in 2016, and have won a league-high 32 games.
But the team is in danger of losing its identity and identity as a football team after losing its best player, WR Kenny Britt, to retirement in 2018.
The Eagles’ 2017 draft class was a solid one for the franchise, but they also had the fourth-best quarterback in the NFL in Carson Wentz, who led the team to a Super Bowl win in January, and a first-round draft pick in Josh Huff.
The team has also had a number of notable departures over the past few seasons, with veteran quarterback Carson Wentzy leaving the team for the Philadelphia 76ers, and receiver Bryce Treggs and tackle Lane Johnson to leave Philadelphia in free agency.
Here’s a look at the three most notable departures from the team in 2017.
Britt was a star receiver for the Eagles who caught 68 passes for 1,086 yards and 11 touchdowns in 2017, including a team-high 16 touchdowns.
But after playing just eight games due to injury, Britt decided to retire after the season.
In an interview with The Philadelphia Inquirer, Britt said, “I want to make a statement, and I want to do something that people can feel proud of.”
In 2018, Britt became a star again in his first season with the Eagles, catching 72 passes for 756 yards and 12 touchdowns in 12 games.
He also finished the season with six interceptions and 11 fumble recoveries, which were the most for a Eagles receiver since 2012.
Britton, who had a career year in 2019, was also a fan favorite, making a big impact on the team with his energy, leadership and passion for the game.
But in the offseason, Britt left for the Los Angeles Rams, leaving the Eagles without a leader.
The Eagles drafted USC wide receiver Sammy Watkins with the 10th overall pick in the 2018 NFL Draft, and had a solid year with Watkins leading the team.
The team was also able to sign WR Nelson Agholor to a five-year contract worth $50 million, but that deal never became official.
Bratt’s retirement came after a career that has seen him make more than $100 million in the salary cap, which is an elite number in the league.
He was also voted the NFL’s most valuable player last year.
He is now 32 years old, and he is a free agent after the 2018 season.
Wentz, a second-round pick of the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2016 and a franchise player, was the Eagles’ best player in 2017 and beyond.
He led the franchise to an undefeated season and a Super Big 12 championship.
Wentz also led the NFL with a career-high 10 interceptions, and led the league with 10.7 sacks.
Watts had a breakout season with 10 touchdowns, but he had a knee injury in September that sidelined him for five weeks.
The injury forced him to miss the first two games of the 2018 regular season, and the team ended up losing their final four games.
Waters, a former Alabama player, spent three years with the team, and spent most of that time as the team’s backup quarterback.
The Philadelphia Eagles traded their No. 1 overall pick to the Minnesota Vikings in exchange for Watkins.
Watkins spent most time as a backup, and after being released in March 2018, he signed a one-year deal with the New York Giants.
The two teams parted ways in the final week of the 2017 season, with the Giants retaining Watkins and the Eagles keeping their top pick.
The 2018 Eagles signed WR Josh Huff to a one year deal worth $8 million.
In 2018 the Eagles lost WR Marquise Goodwin to retirement and signed former Carolina Panthers tight end Evan Engram to a deal worth a reported $14 million per year.
Engram had eight receptions for 105 yards and a touchdown in 2018, and was a mainstay of the offense during Wentz’s absence.
He had a good rookie season in 2019 with 18 receptions for 226 yards and two touchdowns, and is a fan-favorite.
Engrams career is over, and it is not known whether he will rejoin the Eagles in 2019.
Wyatt had a decent rookie season, catching 20 passes for 230 yards and three touchdowns, though he was injured early in the season, missing the first three games.
The 2019 Eagles signed TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, a free-agent signing from the Miami Dolphins.
Seferian, who played in four games with the 49ers in 2017 before being cut, spent part of the 2019 season with San Francisco, and played well for the
