Yup, 2017 was a magical year for many players on the Philadelphia Eagles. On top of winning the first Super Bowl in franchise history, many of them had big years and showed the league just how valuable they are. However, many of those players may not return after 2018. Here's a look at five of those players.
5. Darren Sproles
Sproles made it known that the 2017 season would be his last. However, after a torn ACL cut his season short, he came back to the Eagles on a one-year, $1.4 million deal thanks to some cap space the Eagles freed up from moving down in the draft. The team will love to have him back, but the backfield is pretty crowded as is, so it wouldn't be surprising if this is Sproles' final season with the team or as an NFL player.
4. Brandon Graham
The hero of Super Bowl 52 has been a great influence both on the field and in the locker room. However, the Eagles have the likes of Derek Barrett and Josh Sweat waiting in the wings and Graham is entering the last year of his contract. Though it wouldn't be the most popular move among fans, the Eagles may have no choice but to let the kids play in 2019.
3. Jay Ajayi
As the new feature back for the Eagles, Ajayi is looking to regain his status as a Pro-Bowl running back. However, he's also entering the final year of his rookie contract and Corey Clement has the tools to be a very dangerous weapon out of the backfield. After signing with famous agent Drew Rosenhaus, contract discussions may not go smooth with Eagles. This could be his last year in Philly.
2. Jason Peters
Perhaps the team's biggest loss to injury not named Carson Wentz, Peters has established himself as one of the better offensive lineman in the NFL over the past several years. The left tackle was having a fantastic year before a torn ACL and MCL ended his season. He has two years remaining on his contract, but his age and durability are becoming concerns.
1. Nick Foles
Foles was the MVP of the first Super Bowl the Eagles have ever won. However, things may get murky for him going forward. Carson Wentz, Philly's QB of the future, will return from a torn ACL this season and could start in Week 1. If the team ends up having any major holes to fill, Foles could become a valuable trade chip. He's a starter, too. He's not going to want to be a backup forever.
