Jimmy Kempski of Philly Voice offers some free agents worth watching for the Eagles now that we’re in the second wave of free agency.
- Some of the potential targets for Philadelphia, according to Kempski, include Texans CB Gareon Conley, Colts S Malik Hooker, Falcons S Damontae Kazee, RB Duke Johnson, Chiefs EDGE Tanoh Kpassagnon, and Vikings LB Eric Wilson.
- Should the Raiders opt to release QB Marcus Mariota, Kempski thinks he would be worth considering at around $3 million or so to serve as a backup to Jalen Hurts.

Washington’s recently signed QB Ryan Fitzpatrick feels he is playing at the highest level of his career despite being 38 years old.
“I have a lot of great football ahead of me, which sounds crazy,” said Fitzpatrick, via John Keim of ESPN. “After last season I was sitting with my wife and saying, ‘I think I’m playing better than I ever have and I still love playing this game.’ She looked at me and said, ‘You’d be crazy to not keep playing.'”
Fitzpatrick mentioned that this free-agent run for him was the “most sought-after” he’s been throughout his 17-year career.
“I was just talking to my dad about it the other day, it was interesting that in year 17, this was the most sought-after I have been in my whole career,” Fitzpatrick said.
Fitzpatrick, who has now played on nine different teams throughout his career, believes his success as a journeyman around the league has been a major part of his legacy.
“Part of my story is skipping around to different teams and trying to instill belief and just show that passion,” Fitzpatrick said. “In Miami, it was getting guys that maybe didn’t believe in themselves before to believe. Every time I go to a new place it’s a new opportunity, a new adventure, a new journey for me and I get to reinvent myself and I have to prove myself and earn the respect of the guys.”
“We always talked about being teammates. That [sounded] far-fetched. The opportunity presented itself. I was like, hold on I got the opportunity to play with him? Phenomenal player; great athlete… It’s amazing.”
