‘Big Time Traits’

Cosell Evaluates Free Agent QBs, RBs, WRs


The Philadelphia Eagles could look to the free agent market to fill key depth spots on the offensive side of the ball.

On the latest episode of “The Intel With Greg Cosell” on “Inside The Birds,” the legendary NFL Films analyst Cosell evaluated different skill position players on offense set to hit free agency.

K.J. Osborn

Greg Cosell: “He lines up in the slot, you can line him outside. He is multi-positional, has great location versatility within your formation. I like KJ Osborn.”

Noah Brown

Cosell: “Noah Brown has been one of my favorites. I always thought he was pretty talented…He has big time traits. He’s big, can run, is physical. When Kellen Moore was in Dallas, they would use him as a blocker in the run game where he would motion into the formation. I would imagine Moore really likes him. This year Brown came on when Houston had to use him because of injuries to wide receiver and he showed up. He ran a variety of routes.”

Saquon Barkley

Cosell: “Based on film study, I would not sign Barkley to a big number. I think Barkley is an explosive runner, but not a really good runner. Those are two different things. Barkley has had injuries and is getting older.”

Tony Pollard

Cosell: “The question is volume. Moore would have a good feel for what Pollard is given he was there. But I like Tony Pollard, he has some explosion to him, is a really good receiver. My guess is no one would see him as a foundation of the offense or signing him and giving him 20 carries a game. In the eyes of Moore, I would think he would be very similar to what (D’Andre) Swift was, but Pollard would be better.”

Ryan Tannehill

Cosell: “I think Tannehill can still play. Don’t forget, in the last couple of years he played behind arguably the worst offensive line in the league and got the living crap beat out of him. He can still throw it and still moves well…I think Tannehill would be a really good backup for Philly because if he had to play, you are not giving away games.”
