The Philadelphia Eagles, at the time of this story being written and published, haven’t even taken the field for a training camp practice yet, and already, there are tons of things to talk about. Unfortunately, two of the larger stories have had nothing to do with anything that’s happening on the playing field.
Philly removed Carson Wentz‘s likeness from Lincoln Financial Field’s eastern side of the stadium and replaced it with a picture of one of the more iconic moments in franchise history, a moment that just so happens to feature a shot of Nick Foles, and during the week some stories asked a question, including one of our own here at Inside The Iggles.
Is it wrong to simply ask the question about whether or not Philly, in a rebuilding year, might want to think about the possibility of using Fletcher Cox as a trade piece? After all, he might be the most valuable negotiating piece, from a player’s standpoint, that the Philadelphia Eagles have. It’s a fair question, right? It wasn’t that long ago that we were hearing that there were internal issues brewing.
Well, one former Eagle doesn’t think so, and recently, he clapped back on Twitter to express his disdain for anyone who believes this to be a well-thought-out theory.
Bryce Treggs delivers the statement of the Summer on Philadelphia Eagles Twitter.
Philadelphia Eagles Twitter is a family, and it looks, at times, like our real relatives. There are aunts and uncles that you invite to the barbecue but hope they don’t come. There are cousins that you wish didn’t speak publicly. There are brothers and sisters that we argue with and make up with one another later.
Bryce Treggs is a member of the Eagles Twitter, but he’s also a member of Philadelphia’s family, having been a teammate of Fletcher Cox’s and holding down a spot on the practice squad roster from 2016 to 2017 and again from 2017 to 2018 after a brief stint with the Cleveland Browns in 2017. He also earned a Super Bowl ring for his service.
Here’s what he thinks about all of you (and us) that think trading fletcher Cox might be a great idea or even a decent one.
Let’s be frank. There’s no reason to make short stories longer or drag this one out. Truthfully, what can you say after that? Bryce Treggs is on record. Kudos to him for expressing his opinion and a tip of the cap to him for having his guy’s back. That alone might be a reason to place this one in our back pockets and begin preparing for training camp.
