Did Dallas hamper Philadelphia Eagles with their recent move?
Did the Dallas Cowboys’ recent acquisition of Amari Cooper hamper the Philadelphia Eagles’ and the rest of the NFL’s ability to make a trade?
Well, this isn’t what any of us expected. At approximately 12:45 PM EST, there were about three-and-a-half hours remaining until the much-talked about NFL trade deadline, and not the Philadelphia Eagles or anyone else had done much of anything.
According to one trusted source for football information, Jay Glazer, the Eagles may have one of their rivals to thank for that.
Here’s the skinny.
Glazer got a lot of attention on Tuesday morning after he reported that a ton of teams were making calls but finding little success. the FOX NFL Sunday mainstay seems to believe the Dallas Cowboys‘ trade for Amari Cooper, one in which the Cowboys gave up a first-round selection, has tipped the market a little.
Apparently, now that other NFL franchises have seen Cooper go for a first rounder, they’ve increased their asking price for some of their own talent.
Take a look:
Hopefully, this helps some of this make sense.
Hey, that’s how it works in every other aspect of business. Why would one of the most well run businesses we’ve ever seen, the NFL, be any different?
Eagles fans are still hopeful. At ITI, we ran a quick survey to see what fans of ‘The Birds’ were hoping to see added if a trade was to happen. The results were split.
Here’s where we are:
No one believes that Eagles executive vice president of football operations Howie Roseman isn’t working, but everyone is also aware of something else. In order for him to pull the trigger, if a deal is made, it can’t be one where it isn’t beneficial for both sides.
Philly’s done a good job in this area recently. We’ll see if that trend continues today. There isn’t much time remaining however. The deadline will have come and gone before you know it.
