You have $15, build the best offensive unit in Eagles’ history

Philadelphia has had some all-time great offensive players, but what five players at multiple positions could give fans a dynamic unit on offense?

The Bird’s official Twitter account created a frenzy when they asked fans to build the ultimate roster.

The goal is to create the ultimate Eagles offensive unit with a $15 budget. Your team must consist of a quarterback, two wide receivers, a running back, and a tight end or fullback.


Philadelphia Eagles quarterback (5) Donovan McNabb calls a play during a game against the Pittsburgh Steelers at Heinz Field in Pittsburgh, PA.

$5 Donovan McNabb
$4 Randall Cunningham
$3 Jalen Hurts
$2 Nick Foles
$1 Michael Vick

Best Player in the Group: Donovan McNabb

Cunningham was dynamic, Foles has the Super Bowl and Hurts is the future, but Donovan McNabb owns every single passing mark in franchise history.


No. 1: LeSean McCoy 6,792 rushing yards

$5 LeSean McCoy
$4 Brian Westbrook
$3 Wilbert Montgomery
$2 Ricky Watters
$1 Darren Sproles

QB — $1 Michael Vick

RB — $2 Rick Watters

WR — $5 Harold Carmichael

WR– $3 DeVonta Smith

TE– $4 Dallas Goedert

Michael Vick has always been a talented quarterback and his skill level rises with this diverse group of pass catchers and a dual threat running back.

In three season with the Eagles, Watters played and started every game and recorded 3,794 rushing yards and 31 rushing TDs on 975 carries.

The Eagles’ all-time leader in career receptions (589), receiving yards (5,879), and receiving touchdowns (79), Carmichael would be a matchup nightmare.

DeVonta Smith has already shattered the Eagles franchise record for catches in a season by a wide receiver.

Goedert could be the prize of the group as a talented tight end who flourishes at Yards After The Catch.
