2021’s Philadelphia Eagles wouldn’t trade Brandon Graham, would they?

No sources we trust have mentioned issues with B.G. and the Philadelphia Eagles.

There probably isn’t a sports fan on Planet Earth that doesn’t know what Bleacher Report is. One of the mainstays of sports entertainment, they’ve developed a reputation, and whether you subscribe to what they say or not (or are a fan). There’s reason to tune your antenna to their frequency when they say things, even if you know there isn’t a ton to worry about.

In a recent story by Chris Roling, one that offers “one trade each NFL team should offer before 2021 training camp starts”, Philly dishes B.G. to the Tennessee Titans for a third-round selection in 2022. Here’s some of what Roling had to say on the matter.

"The Tennessee Titans didn’t even have to sacrifice a first-round pick while acquiring wideout Julio Jones, so why not go for another win-now steal? Next, the Titans could turn their attention to the defense, where Bud Dupree’s addition isn’t guaranteed to be the solo boost necessary to take the unit from its paltry 19 sacks last year to elite status. Another veteran add that doesn’t cost a ton to bring over via trade could make some sense. Brandon Graham of the Philadelphia Eagles just inked a one-year extension for cap-relief purposes but could always move if the team is comfortable with Ryan Kerrigan taking over his role. Graham, a consistent presence since joining the league in the first round of the 2010 draft, has 16 sacks over the last two seasons and enters his age-33 season without a dropoff in sight. If the price is right, he’d boost the rotation in Tennessee."

Again, it’s interesting but also unlikely. And, keep what was just said in mind. There have been no rumblings from one side or the other that demonstrate that Philly is done with B.G. or vice versa. Philly’s recent moves, especially the ones made along the defensive line, have been fostered in an attempt to add to B.G.’s production, not in an attempt to erase his name from the depth chart.
