Can the Philadelphia Eagles correct the error of ignoring D.K. Metcalf?
So, in the end, the Jalen Hurts supporters got what they wanted, and so did Russell Wilson. It sounds like the nine-time Pro Bowl nod wanted to go to the Denver Broncos all along, and as many believed, the Philadelphia Eagles were never a considered landing spot in the first place.
That’s okay. After seeing what the Broncos gave up, you should be pleased that Philly didn’t mortgage the future. Picture giving up two first-rounders, two second-rounders, a fifth-rounder, Dallas Goedert, and Josh Sweat in an attempt to land a guy that doesn’t even guarantee you a playoff win… or a playoff appearance.
You do realize Russ gets two games versus Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs and another two games versus Justin Herbert and the L.A. Chargers, right? Yeah, good luck with that!
Meanwhile, in the City of Brotherly Love and every other town on Planet Earth where Birds fans reside, thoughts are on what appears to be a fire sale in Seattle with the Seahawks. Bobby Wagner’s been released, and there are rumors that D.K. Metcalf might land on the trade block. Both players are extremely attractive options for obvious reasons.
Let’s explore that Metcalf angle for a few ticks. Here are three ways the Birds can go all-in for someone they missed on just three years ago in the 2019 NFL Draft’s second round. Bucke up. This ought to be fun.
