The Philadelphia Eagles should consider making some surprise moves.

Fans of the Philadelphia Eagles are still reeling from a disgusting display of football in 2020. What started with so much promise, quickly became one implosion after another. Ultimately, all of that would lead to a four-win season, the firing of their head coach, and the franchise quarterback being traded away. Luckily, the 2021 season brings a new hope along with a whole new team. Philly is now led by first-time head coach Nick Sirianni, and this Eagles team has a chance to start anew.

Early signs have looked positive for the Birds and their fans as the franchise seemed to do well in both free agency and the 2021 NFL Draft. Still, even with the additions of some young potential stars, Philadelphia Eagles fans shouldn’t expect their team to be a powerhouse just yet.

There is a lot to be determined as the team rolls out a new starting quarterback in Jalen Hurts, and here’s a question that’s even more interesting than that. Can they stay healthy? Age could play a big part in all of this, so with that in mind, we at ITI decided to come up with two surprising trade scenarios that could hurt upfront in the short term but pay huge dividends in the long run as the Philadelphia Eagles look to rebuild the roster.
