The NFL is a league where you can go from worst first pretty quickly based on personnel, coaching, and great quarterback play.

Teams don’t stay down for long in the NFL and as the Eagles embark on an organizational reset under Nick Sirianni, one league insider believes it’ll be the hardest job among all the seven openings this offseason.

During a visit to the Eagle Eye podcast this week, Pro Football Talk’s Chris Simms called the Eagles rebuild the “biggest” in the NFL.

“There’s holes all over the roster.”

“I hate saying that. I have so much respect for that front office and the things they’ve done over the last decade and things like that,” he said. “But the way the salary cap is, all the older players, everything about the football team just says, ‘It needs to be blown up and we’ve got to start from scratch.’”

Simms also joined the growing list of NFL experts calling for the Eagles to draft a quarterback at No. 6 overall in April’s draft.
