3. Philadelphia Eagles

Sorry, Giants fans, but there's another NFC East rival that Barkley could join this offseason. The Philadelphia Eagles could be in the market for the three-time 1,000-yard rusher.

Following Miles Sanders' exit last season following four seasons in Philadelphia, the Eagles turned to D'Andre Swift — along with Kenneth Gainwell and Boston Scott — to lead the backfield. While the trio still helped the team to a top-10 run game, the fact that the Birds averaged nearly 25 fewer rushing yards per game than last season means changes could be coming.

With Swift and Scott scheduled to become free agents, I wouldn't be shocked if Barkley joined the Eagles. They consistently have one of the best offensive lines in the league and boast plenty of weapons that would leave the 26-year-old to play pressure-free football. It wouldn't be surprising if he put up another 1,000-yard, 10-TD campaign behind Philly O-line.

Furthermore, joining the Eagles would be a bit of a homecoming for Barkley. Although he was born in Bronx, NY, his family moved to Pennsylvania when he was four years old and he even remained there until he left Penn State to join the Giants in 2018. Players dream of playing in front of friends and family, further adding fuel to the fire of a Barkley-Eagles connection.
