The Philadelphia’s can ship the 19th-overall selection to Seattle.
Recently, two questions have been asked, and we’ve been hearing them more frequently after reading and hearing the news that the Seahawks have decided to part ways with their top two players of the past decade, Wilson and Wagner.
Is Seattle in the midst of a complete rebuild? Might D.K. Metcalf be on his way out of the Pacific Northwest as well?
The 2022-2023 NFL season will be the final year of a four-year arrangement that he and the Hawks agreed to in 2019 after making him the 64th-overall selection of that year’s draft. Trades don’t occur that often in the NFL, but if Seattle plans to destroy and rebuild, as they say, it would behoove Howie Roseman and company to, at minimum, inquire about what the asking price for Metcalf might be.
An educated guess would lead one to believe it won’t be inexpensive. Maybe Seattle bites on a couple of second-round selections. Arguments can be made that they won’t.
Why not, if you’re the Eagles, offer one of those three first-rounders? With both Seattle and Philly playing in the NFC, you hate to see deals that could lead to the Seahawks strengthening their roster. After all, this is a team that’s already amassing first-rounders, a team that you could bump into in the postseason.
The Philadelphia Eagles can’t think like that though. They have to be aggressive, and with a need to fill a void they have at wide receiver opposite DeVonta Smith, it’s hard to imagine they’d find a first-round receiver in this draft or the next that has as much talent as the guy in Seattle.
Trust us. Drake London isn’t that guy.
