The Monday that follows another Philadelphia Eagles football game is a quiet one for the most part. There aren't any real days off at the NovaCare Complex, but this is probably as close as it gets.

Head coach Nick Sirianni met with the media. We hear vice president/general manager Howie Roseman is working the phones, and the NFL's trade deadline looms.

Every professional franchise has until 4 p.m. EST on Halloween to put the finishing touches on some last-minute additions if they choose to do so.

One of the new Birds has done his part to free up some loose change just in case the Birds are looking to be aggressive.

Eagles, Kevin Byard agree to terms on a restructured deal.

The Eagles' players aren't participating in any practice sessions today, but the coaches are working. So is Howie Roseman. He has worked with Kevin Byard to restructure a deal and free up some needed space.

Field Yates of ESPN reports that the Birds have restructured their new safety's deal to free $711,000 in cap space for 2023. Don't be shocked if Philly makes a move at the aforementioned trade deadline.

Byard was busy in his debut with the Philadelphia Eagles. He played 100% of Philly's defensive snaps, 72 in total, He notched seven total tackles. Four were of the solo variety.

As the season rolls on, he'll play a huge factor in the defense's success. He should be more comfortable with Sean Desai's scheme after another week of practice, but for now, all eyes are on the NFL's best G.M., Howie, and Tuesday's 4 p.m. EST deadline.
