On this Eagles team, it’s not all that easy to find a player who has made steady progress over a three-year period. That’s one reason the team is 4-8-1 heading into Sunday’s outing in Arizona, against the 7-6 Cardinals.

Defensive end Josh Sweat is that Eagles rarity – a medical gamble that worked, a player whose performance has exceeded the value of his draft position, and a guy who has gotten at least a little better every year he has played.

Sweat, a fourth-round pick out of Florida State in 2018, isn’t a Pro Bowl candidate yet, but he has a career-high six sacks this season. He notched two of them in last week’s 24-21 victory over the New Orleans Saints, including the pivotal play of the afternoon.
