Adding talent to the Philadelphia Eagles pass defense should be a goal.

Trade Scenario: The Philadelphia Eagles send a 2022 second-round pick to the New England Patriots for cornerback Stephon Gilmore.

If you would have said the Eagles were looking for a seasoned veteran like Gilmore a week ago, you probably would have been laughed at, but after news broke of another surprise addition, the acquisition of Ryan Kerrigan, that no longer appears to be the case.

Philly’s front office thinks they have put together a nice enough roster to truly compete in the NFC East this season, so with that in mind, the idea of adding another veteran star doesn’t seem so farfetched as it once did.

Adding Stephon Gilmore to this roster would give the Eagles one of, if not the best duo of cornerbacks in the entire National Football League. Gilmore has everything fans have been dreaming about in a cornerback.

He’s a legit lockdown cover guy. He has the aggressive nature Eagles fans have grown to love in their defensive prospects, and adding him to play alongside Darius Slay would create a scary passing defense for any opposing offense.
