Might the Philadelphia Eagles truly be a realistic trade partner if the Chargers are interested in dealing Melvin Gordon? Here’s what a few NFL experts are saying.
It sounds real sexy when you say it, Melvin Gordon in a Philadelphia Eagles uniform. To be frank, there are a few narratives that we’ve gotten used to hearing. Any former Eagle that’s on the trade block or nearing the end of a contract will spark talk of a possible reunion with ‘The Birds’, and any special talent who plays a skill position will find his way into a rumor that links him with Philly.
Over the past two years, we’ve heard, from somewhere, that the Eagles are players in the Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown sweepstakes. There have been questions about whether or not Dez Bryant was a fit. We’ve even heard Jeremy Maclin was returning to the nest once upon a time.
Each time, DeSean Jackson saw himself as the subject of a trade or free agency, almost everyone wondered in he’d return to the ‘City of Brotherly Love’. This time he did, and so far, things seem to be working out.
When the 2019 seasons ends for the Eagles, there are a lot of things to work out financially. According to OvertheCap.com, they, currently have $21,080,072 in cap space. Melvin Gordon is scheduled to make $5,605,000 in 2019. He feels he deserves more. As you’ve probably heard, he says he has the support of fellow teammates and his colleagues around the league.
So far there’s been no new deal, and those trade rumors are increasing. Might Philly be a realistic partner if that’s the case? Let’s investigate.
