The Philadelphia Eagles still have to go all-in and trade for D.K. Metcalf, right?

If you’ve been enjoying the daytime weather that we’ve been getting so far during the early portion of a very strange spring season (you know, warm days and cold nights), you may have missed the fact that Inside The Iggles has been beating this ‘trade for D.K. Metcalf‘ drum for quite some time.

Don’t you worry about a thing if you’re on our side guys and gals! If no one chooses to join us, we’ll carry the doggone torch alone.

We’ve mentioned ways that the Eagles could go all-in for his services. As soon as we stopped getting patted on the back for that one (or attacked with anonymous threats, depending on what side you’re on), we dropped a mock draft and drew up a first-round trade with the hope that it would get some important people to start a conversation… It didn’t.

That’s okay! No worries! At last look, the Seattle Seahawks haven’t hammered out a new extension to lock down their star wideout, so we believe there’s hope. We’ll continue to speak things into existence.

Trading for D.K. Metcalf would be a huge coup for this Eagles franchise and a weight off of the shoulders of the many members of the most loyal fan base in all of sports. At this point, we’ll give up anything, and that includes Jalen Reagor or JJ Arcega-Whiteside or both of them.

To be totally honest, we don’t mind Pascal’s addition if we move those guys and go get a true elite receiver. Believe it or not, it could work, but it may not be the best option that the Eagles have. Did you see who was still available in free agency?
