Philadelphia Eagles and the Patriots are a match made in heaven.
Trade proposal: The New England Patriots send a 2022 2nd-round selection, a 2022 5th-round selection, and WR N’Keal Harry to Philadelphia in exchange for Andre Dillard and Zach Ertz.
How’s that for out-of-the-box thinking? You didn’t see that coming, did you? Look at it this way. If both teams follow this blueprint, the Philadelphia Eagles take care of their dilemma in trying to move two players, Andre Dillard and tight-end Zach Ertz.
Sure, we’ve heard the rumors about the greatest tight end in Eagles history, so why not sweeten the pot and help the front office along? Ertz finally gets to move on, and more importantly, the third-year left tackle (Dillard) gets the opportunity for a fresh start, something that could be huge for the young man.
Andre Dillard still has the tools to be a great starter in the NFL, so if anyone can help get that out of him it’s head coach Bill Belichick. The Philadelphia Eagles and New England Patriots recently faced off in Week 2 preseason after a couple of joint practices. Bellichick had the opportunity to see Dillard up close and personal. He’s known how good Ertz is for a while now. This is a trade in which everyone wins.
