When are the Eagles trading for WRs?
The Eagles are reportedly looking to trade for wide receiver DeSean Jackson.
ESPN’s Adam Schefter and NFL Network’s Mike Garafolo report the Eagles are “working on it.”
Schefter notes the Eagles’ offense has been “slow to turn things around” since Jackson suffered a season-ending ACL tear in Week 1 of this year.
Jackson had eight catches for 111 yards and a touchdown in 2016, but he’s been plagued by injury since.
ESPN NFL Insider Adam Scheffler tweeted that Jackson has been dealing with an “extensive” Achilles injury.
The Eagles signed former San Francisco 49ers WR Marquise Goodwin to fill the void left by Jackson, who has 11 receptions for 126 yards and two touchdowns over his last four games.
Goodwin is a bit of a project as a receiver in terms of speed and ability, but the Eagles will be able to acquire more value for him in a trade.
They were able to move up in the first round to draft tight end Josh Huff, who is expected to be a big contributor for the Philadelphia offense.
Philadelphia could also use help at tight end, as the Eagles rank No. 24 in points allowed per game and have allowed the fifth most fantasy points per game in the league.
Philadelphia will have to deal with tight end Evan Engram, who’s been out since Week 6 with a concussion.
The team has been one of the worst in the NFL in pass protection and has allowed the most touchdowns to opposing tight ends.
