The Philadelphia Eagles will sign the former first-round selection after it…

The Philadelphia Eagles are set to add a former first-round pick to their offense for the 2024 campaign. The Eagles had taken several steps to upgrade their roster for the upcoming season. They took care of their biggest need, secondary, in the first two rounds of the 2024 NFL Draft.

The Eagles extended A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith this offseason to ensure their star wide receivers were around for Jalen Hurts to throw the ball to. However, the Eagles need more depth in the trenches on both sides of the ball, and they are about to help the offensive line.

According to Adam Schefter with ESPN, the Eagles are set to sign Mekhi Becton to a one-year deal worth $5.5 million. He needs to pass a physical before the deal becomes official. Per Schefter, Becton has a long history of injury:

The Jets selected Becton with the No. 11 pick in the 2020 NFL Draft. Becton started in 16 games for the Jets last season.

Schefter noted the Eagles were expected to add an offensive tackle in the draft, but none fell to them over the weekend.

The Eagles needed offensive line help after losing several key players from the 2023 squad. Jack Driscoll and Sua Opeta left in free agency. Jason Kelce retired.
