Seahawks Emerges as Potential Trade Partner for Eagles on Draft Day

Published on


Let’s get to the Philadelphia Eagles links …

2024 NFL mock draft with all trades: Deals for 32 first-round picks – ESPN+
Seahawks get: 1-22, 2-53 … Eagles get: 1-16, 3-81. GM Howie Roseman lives to move up a couple picks in Round 1 and beat another team to the player he wants. By those standards, jumping six picks is a more significant leap, but the Eagles are being run a little differently in 2024 than they were in years past. Roseman has to seriously think about what’s going to happen at cornerback in both the short- and long-term. James Bradberry and Darius Slay could both be gone in 2025, and Philadelphia might need a first-rounder to step in and play meaningful snaps if either of the two get injured this season. Moving up would get the Eagles ahead of the Jaguars in the cornerback mix. Philly has two second-round picks as a result of its trade with the Saints before the 2022 draft, but it doesn’t have a third-rounder after recent deals for Kelee Ringo and Kenny Pickett. (The Ringo trade, where the Eagles dealt a third-rounder in 2024 for a fourth-rounder in 2023, was a heat check for Roseman.) The Seahawks are missing their second-rounder from the Leonard Williams trade, so this is one way for them to get back that missing capital, albeit at the expense of their third-rounder.

Mailbag: The five most likely players the Eagles will draft in the first round – PhillyVoice
Question from @Philly_Bul215: What’s the highest you see the Eagles moving up to on draft night? Top 15? I think Seattle at 16 is the sweet spot. I agree that Seattle is the sweet spot for a trade up. If the Eagles were to get to that spot, at least one of JC Latham, Amarius Mims, Terrion Arnold, or Quinyon Mitchell should be available. In my opinion, those are the four players the Eagles are most likely to make a modest move up for. But also: Howie is boys with Seattle GM John Schneider, and they’ve done their fair share of deals. The Seahawks don’t have a second-round pick, and the trade chart works out nicely for the following kind of swap: Eagles get Pick 16, Pick 81 … Seahawks get Pick 22, Pick 50.

Jason Kelce’s Last Stand: A valiant epilogue that saw the Eagles legend battle time, his body, and a collapsing team – Inquirer
Kelce had been open about the physical toll of the game before. But he hardly ever told the full story of how he managed to play in 167 consecutive games, including playoffs, over the last decade. Johnson, who came to refer to his long-time teammate as Tin Man, and others with the Eagles saw his sacrifice up close. “You could feel his body would be just kind of falling apart some days,” Johnson said. “The guy was just a damn warrior. Everybody has to battle in this game, but you saw a guy that really took it to the limit, emotionally, physically, the way he practiced. “When you see a guy have to give all that effort into being what he’s become, then it motivates everybody else.”

Packers sign former 1st-round tackle ahead of 2024 NFL Draft – Acme Packing Company
In four years with the Eagles, Andre Dillard only managed to start nine games for the team, as seventh-round pick Jordan Mailata developed into the franchise’s left tackle while Lane Johnson held down the fort on the right side. As a free agent in 2023, Dillard signed a three-year, $29 million contract with the Tennessee Titans, who he played for last season. In the first nine weeks of the season, Dillard made eight starts for the Titans before being benched. He returned to the starting lineup in Week 17 and 18, playing 56 percent of Tennessee’s total offensive snaps.

Sources suggested price tag for Justin Jefferson will have impact on Cowboys, CeeDee Lamb – Blogging The Boys
The Dallas Cowboys need to take care of CeeDee Lamb. He is among the best players on the team and being currently set to enter the final year of his contract (the option season of his rookie deal after having been a first-round pick in 2020) is not ideal. You want to reward your stars for stellar performances and Lamb is coming off of literally the most statistically impressive season that a wide receiver has ever had in franchise history. As if that weren’t enough reason to want to get a deal done with Lamb (he and the team are reportedly not close) there is also the market at his position and that it is seemingly a volcano on the verge of erupting. Justin Jefferson, Ja’Marr Chase, Jaylen Waddle, Brandon Aiyuk and Amon-Ra St. Brown are a handful of names that are all looking to get paid and handsomely so. The Philadelphia Eagles, ever understanding of the finances of football, understand that getting deals done early is usually how you save in the long run and locked up DeVonta Smith earlier this week. The clock is ticking.

Giants are giving Darren Waller some space – Big Blue View
But while the Giants are being understanding and giving Waller the time and space he needs to make the right decision for him, they understandably hope to get a decision soon. “Hopefully, he’s going to make a decision here in the short term,” Schoen said. “But, you know, we’re getting him time and space to make a decision on what he wants to do.” The draft is fast approaching and Waller’s decision could have a real influence on what the offense looks like in 2024. Whether or not the Giants have Waller as a big receiving threat could shape their perceived needs. Schoen, however, isn’t putting that on Waller. “No,” Schoen said, “we haven’t given him a deadline.”

Adam Peters Presser: We feel great about staying at #2. I don’t see a lot of scenarios where we trade down. – Hogs Haven
The Washington Commanders have 6 picks in the top 100 of this year’s draft, including the #2 overall pick. They are expected to take a QB in the first round, most likely at #2 after the Chicago Bears select QB Caleb Williams. Peters reportedly had around 20 players in for Top 30 visits, including four of the top QB prospects. Most people expect Washington’s decision to come down to UNC’s Drake Maye and LSU’s Jayden Daniels.

11 NFL Draft interior OL, ranked by where they should be selected in 2024 – SB Nation
2. Troy Fautanu, Washington. There were a couple offensive linemen with tackle-guard versatility in the SB Nation staff rankings. While players like Jordan Morgan from Arizona and Graham Barton from Duke made it onto our tackles list, Fautanu ended up getting kicked inside. Nonetheless, he’s a high-level prospect who should generate Round 1 consideration. With his lateral quickness, short-area burst, precision as a down blocker and technically-sound skill set, Fautanu projects as an immediate starter with plenty of potential.
