5 Realistic Moves That Philadelphia Eagles Could Make at NFL Trade Deadline

The Philadelphia Eagles and their fanbase have two weeks to stew over the latest results that have the Eagles at a disappointing 3-3 record, mired in second place in the NFC East.

Yesterday’s debacle against the Detroit Lions was one of the more frustrating games under the Andy Reid era, and it intensified much of the disparagement felt against the coaching staff. There’s no denying the talent on the football team; the Eagles have an offense with the ability to play with any team in the league when it’s clicking.

The defense is stocked full of should-be playmakers on the line, two talented new linebackers, and a secondary that can cause trouble for even the best quarterbacks in the game, and the bottom line is that a 10-point lead with five minutes to go should never evaporate like it did in Sunday’s contest.

It’s time for the Eagles to make some changes, and while it’s doubtful that stubborn Reid will fire either offensive coordinator Marty Mornhinweg, defensive coordinator Juan Castillo, or special teams coach Bobby April midseason, all three are unofficially on the hot seat.

The Eagles also need to look internally within their 53-man roster to see which players do belong and which players just aren’t getting the job done. Trades aren’t too common in the NFL, and there are just a few weeks remaining before the Week 8 trade deadline, but here are five potential trades the Eagles could do with other teams around the league.
