Report: Roseman Likely To Make More Trades
The Eagles aren’t done making trades to improve the talent on their roster, according to Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports. Howie Roseman has apparently been looking around for corners, and La Canfora believes the Birds could make at least two more trades in the next couple of weeks.
Here’s what La Canfora wrote:
The Eagles aren’t done wheeling and dealing. Not by a long shot. Having spent a load to keep their own players and very short on draft picks after the trade for Wentz, aggressive general manager Howie Roseman will continue trying to upgrade via trade.
That move for Dorial Green-Beckham is just a portal into Roseman’s thinking there — looking for recent draft picks from other teams who haven’t panned out who could fill a position of need in Philly and are young and cheap labor.
The Eagles were looking for linebackers for a while before settling on signing free agent Stephen Tulloch. They’ve also been sniffing around on corners, and other general managers get the sense that Roseman is always working the trade angle and trying to see who could become available.
I’d put the over/under at two on trades this team makes before the Eagles take the practice field a few days before the start of the regular season. They will be very active during the roster cutdown period, trust me.
