Eagles Reportedly Make Trade Offer For Patrick Peterson

By Paul Bowman, Sports Talk Philly Editor

On the same day a report was released that Howie Roseman had made a major offer to acquire cornerback Jalen Ramsey from the Jaguars, a report has surfaced that he has done the same with Patrick Peterson.

Ben Natan of Bleeding Green Nation reports that Roseman offered a first-round pick and receiver Nelson Agholor in exchange for Peterson.

The offer would seem to be quite a bit.

Report: Eagles Offered First And Second-Round Pick For Jalen Ramsey

The Eagles secondary has struggled mightily the past few seasons, especially with all the injuries that piled up in 2018.

Already down Cre'Von LeBlanc and Jalen Mills, the Eagles began the season with just four corners. Then Ronald Darby, Sidney Jones and Avonte Maddox all suffered injuries.

The team had to rely on Craig James off of the practice squad and re-sign veteran Orlando Scandrick just to have healthy bodies.

That means that corner is the weakness of the team.

Minkah Fitzpatrick wanted to be traded and many thought the Eagles could land him. Then there's Xavien Howard and Patrick Peterson, who are top-tier corners on bad teams that could be moved.

And of course, Jalen Ramsey was available. Arguably the best cornerback in the league.

Injury Report: Eagles at Cowboys

By Paul Bowman, Sports Talk Philly Editor

The Eagles head to Dallas at 3-3, tied for first place in the NFC East.

The team is banged up badly, but, hopefully, healing with reinforcements coming very soon.

While he was never on the injury reports because he was on the PUP list, Jalen Mills reports he will start this week, providing what could be a huge boost to a team that was starting a guy they signed off the street the last two weeks.

Week Seven Preview: Philadelphia Eagles at Dallas Cowboys

(One of my all-time favorite Eagles moments. Lito Sheppard picks off Drew Bledsoe and returns it 102 yards to seal an Eagles win over the Cowboys. It was TO’s first game back in Philly.)

By Matt Szczypiorski, Sports Talk Philly Contributing Writer

There is no game that an Eagles fan looks forward to in the regular season more than the two games against Dallas. The hatred is obvious and mutual. The games are that much better when both teams are good and competing for the division title.

That’s the situation we have set up for us as fans on Sunday. Winner takes sole possession of first place on Sunday Night Football. In that stupid stadium they call “Jerry's World.” In a lot of ways, I think Eagles fans enjoy beating Dallas in their place more than at home. At least I do.

Another underrated part of beating Dallas is when the camera inevitably pans to Jerry Jones in his owner’s box, showing him pound his fist in disgust like a child. It makes me laugh every time. Let’s hope we get to hear Al Michaels and Cris Collinsworth discussing that late in the fourth quarter on Sunday night.

As Eagles fans, we are going to need to channel all of the 44-6, “They stop him again,” Brandon Boykin and Lito Sheppard game-winning interceptions, and 1980 NFC Championship game thoughts we can possibly have on Sunday. I think the Eagles are going to need all the help they can get to win on Sunday.

Two Rookies Set For Big Roles In Dallas

By Paul Bowman, Sports Talk Philly Editor

Up until last week, the Eagles had received very little impact from their rookies outside of second-round pick Miles Sanders. Sanders has his foot in nearly every aspect of the game possible for a running back and while his running game could use some improvement, he has been very productive. In fact, he is third in the league for yards per touch among running backs with 50 or more touches. Sanders has averaged 5.97 yards per touch with only Dalvin Cook and Matt Breida doing better in that area.

Aside from Sanders, however, the Eagles had almost no production from the rookies they brought in.

First-rounder Andre Dillard had been warming the bench. Second-rounder JJ Arcega-Whiteside got to play a few games and did nothing with that time, making a dropped pass to lose the game his signature play. Defensive end Shareef Miller has been inactive for every game. Quarterback Clayton Thorson is on the Dallas Cowboys practice squad. Linebacker TJ Edwards, the only rookie undrafted free agent to crack the roster, had been limited to special teams snaps.

That will change this week in Dallas.

By Paul Bowman, Sports Talk Philly Editor

The Eagles have two spots open on their 53-man roster and they might have taken the first step to filling one of those spots.

On Tuesday, the Eagles activated a 21-day practice window for cornerback Jalen Mills.

Eagles Release LB Zach Brown

By Paul Bowman, Sports Talk Philly Editor

On Sunday, the Eagles lost Nigel Bradham to an ankle injury and he did not return to the game.

On Monday, head coach deemed Bradham "day-to-day" with an unspecified return date.

That would seem to make the Eagles decision Monday night to be slightly more confusing.

The team announced Monday night that they had released veteran LB Zach Brown.
