APhiladelphia Eagles star appears to be on the way out.

According to a report from ESPN’s Dan Graziano, Eagles defensive tackle Javon Hargrave is likely to cash in on his productive 2022 campaign with a “big-money” deal as a free agent. Not only does it appear Hargrave will sign a big deal, Graziano notes the Eagles are not likely to be the team that signs him to such a deal.

Via Tyler Conway of Bleacher Report:

“Dan Graziano of ESPN reported Hargrave will likely lead the defensive tackle free-agent class with a ‘big-money’ deal,” said Conway. “The report noted the Eagles are not likely to be the team that forks over that money given their cap situation and depth on the defensive line.”

That, plus the expected departure of Fletcher Cox, probably makes him the likeliest of the Eagles’ top-tier pending free agents to return.”

To illustrate just how big of a free agent Hargrave is, he’s ranked second on The Athletic’s list of top free agents this offseason, only behind Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson.

According to Pro Football Focus, Hargrave posted a 78.2 defensive grade and a robust 90.8 pass-rushing grade last season. Among all defensive tackles, Hargrave ranked …read more
