The First Move

Posted: March 4th, 2018 | Author: | Filed under: Philadelphia Eagles | 1 Comment »

The Eagles are over the salary cap by about $9M so moves have to be made. It sounds like the first move is close to happening.

My guess…the Eagles want to trade Curry. Rapoport posted his nugget and the Eagles then contacted him to try and spin the situation. If other teams think the Eagles are going to let Curry go, they have no incentive to trade for him.

Howie Roseman has a good poker face and normally does a great job with situations like this. The problem is that the Eagles need to clear cap space so he is going to have to make a move in the next 10 days. There will be deadline pressure on him and that makes it tougher to negotiate.

Trading Curry for a late round pick makes the most sense. It helps the cap situation and opens the RDE spot for Derek Barnett, who flashed big time ability in 2017. The Eagles want to get Barnett on the field more this year. The team doesn’t have many picks so adding even a late round pick could help.

Jimmy Bama has the financial details of the Curry situation here.


Speaking of picks…

There are all these good looking prospects at the Combine and some of them I just know the Eagles have no shot at. It gets frustrating if you’re a draftnik like me.

But then…

Life is good.
