If there's one constant in the NFL (besides Tom Brady, of course), it's the never-ending roster turnover that undoubtedly leads to sleepless nights for each of the league's 32 general managers. From the time the Super Bowl champion is crowned until the ball is kicked off in Week 1, NFL front offices are on a constant quest to create a roster that is stronger than the one that proceeded it. 

The 2022 offseason included a bevy of big transactions, with seemingly every team being part of at least one splashy transaction. The Browns' massive investment in Deshaun Watson has generated the most attention. Russell Wilson's arrival in Denver was also notable, as well as the Chiefs and Packers electing to part with All-Pro receivers Tyreek Hill and Davante Adams. 

As big as those moves were, none of them impacted the five teams that improved their teams the most during the offseason. Three of these teams (including our top team) improved their already decent odds at winning Super Bowl LVII. Another team made enough roster moves to remain competitive in a division that includes the reigning AFC champion. And while one of our teams may still be a ways away from competing for a championship, their roster could be good enough to join the list of unlikely playoff teams. 

We kick things off with a team that is hoping to make a big jump in 2022 after a largely surprising 2021 campaign. 

 

1. Philadelphia Eagles 

Key additions: A.J. Brown, Haason Reddick, James Bradberry, Jordan Davis

A wild card team last season, the Eagles seem primed to fly considerably higher in 2022. During the draft, GM Howie Roseman swung a trade that brought in Brown, a former Pro Bowl wideout with the Titans. Brown joins an already talented offense, led by quarterback Jalen Hurts, receiver DeVonta Smith, tight end Dallas Goedert and running backs Miles Sanders, Boston Scott and Kenneth Gainwell. The Eagles still possess one of the NFL's best offensive lines, led by Jason Kelce, Lane Johnson and Jordan Mailata. 

The Eagles made major additions to a defense that came on strong at the end of the '21 season. They made a free agent splash with the signing of Reddick, who comes to Philadelphia after compiling 23.5 sacks over the past two seasons. They then threw salt on the Giants' wounds by picking up Bradberry, who was waived by New York in May as part of a salary dump. The Eagles strengthened the middle of their defense by signing former Charger Kyzir White, who filled the stat sheet last season with 144 tackles, two interceptions and a pair of forced fumbles. 

Philadelphia parlayed its successful free agency into an equally successful draft that included the selections of former Georgia standouts Davis and Nakobe Dean -- the latter of whom was a third-round pick who -- if healthy -- may one day be remembered as a savvy Day 2 draft steal.
