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.

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.

Eagles Waive Ryan Lewis, Sign a Running Back to Practice Squad

By Paul Bowman, Sports Talk Philly Editor

With Jalen Mills eligible to return to from the PUP list this week and the plan for him to begin practicing this week, the Eagles have made a roster move.

On Monday, the team released corner Ryan Lewis.

The reason for the move has not been announced as officially to create a spot for Mills, but that is the most likely scenario.

Eagles Evaluation: Vikings Top Birds

Big wins in Green Bay and hosting the Jets seemed to have the Eagles back on track, but their road trip first took them to Minnesota, who houses two great receivers to match up with the Eagles depleted secondary.

A loss is nit what we hoped for, but it certainly isn't surprising, especially when the Eagles really only have one corner on the roster with the speed to even have a chance at keeping up with Stefon Diggs and he was ruled out ahead of the game. Ronald Darby has the speed, if you were wondering. Whether his coverage skills would have been enough is another story.

On the opposite side, the offense that was not great against the Jets was similarly ineffective on Sunday with a struggling run game and a rookie running back being the only really solid option in the passing game. Alshon Jeffery and Nelson Agholor are making big bucks to be mediocre players at this point.
