2. Greedy Williams
First off, if the Eagles didn’t acquire Slay from the Lions in March, chances are that Philadelphia would have strongly considered using one of their early picks on cornerback when seeing the inconsistent play at the position from last season.
While Slay is a lock for the No. 1 spot, who will end up starting alongside the three-time Pro Bowler remains to be seen, as Philadelphia has a few candidates at the moment such as Sidney Jones and Avonte Maddox who hope to compete for the job.
But of course, just because the Eagles feel confident in one of their current cornerbacks at the moment having what it takes to win the No. 2 starting job doesn’t necessarily mean it is guaranteed to turn out the way Philadelphia hopes it will.
In other words, the Eagles would benefit from keeping all options open this offseason is a trade were to present itself, which is where Greedy Williams could come into play.
Similar to the situation with Wilson, the potential surrounding Williams following his first NFL season makes it seem unlikely that Cleveland would be willing to offer him up in a trade, but once again, every trade has a certain asking price.
Knowing the Eagles, and their previous struggles at cornerback, if the belief was there over Williams potentially having a strong future in the NFL, a potential trade could be worth the future draft pick.
