Eagle Addresses Raging WR Commercial Rumors: ‘Of course’

Darius Slay, DK Metcalf


DK Metcalf shot 177 yards away against Darius Slay and the Eagles on Monday Night Football.

Three elite wide receivers may be available This season: Calvin Ridley, Amari Cooper, DK Metcalf. All three would look great in midnight green ensembles while offering the option of extra studs for pairing DeVonta Smith.

The Philadelphia Eagles will likely do their due diligence on those, but the ability to trade for one faces long odds. They want to be younger, not older. general manager Howie Roseman introduced the term “construction mode” in his year-end press conference to describe the plan for 2022. That means assessing the good players they already have on the roster, then use their 10 draft picks – including the first three – to complement them.

Head Coach Nick Sirianni talked about how much he loved the Eagles ‘receiver’ room. Smith is the clear No. 1, with Quez Watkins sliding into No. 2 before Jalen Reagan. Greg Ward and JJ Arcega-Whiteside received special thanks in a long and rambling reply about why he loves the group. Buried in that answer is a glimmer of hope for those who want to see the transaction. Sirianni said the Eagles are always looking to “add talent”.

“I know that this is a good group. Are we always looking for ways to add talent to the team and the people who play it? Of course,” Sirianni said. “But I like where we sit right now as a broad receptive group, and I think we can continue to grow in that group because of the talent that we have and the people that we have on the team. that room.”

Metcalf’s Future Belongs to Russell Wilson

The idea of ​​Seattle getting rid of a 24 year old recipient At the peak of his career he didn’t mean anything. Unless the Seahawks decide to trade Pro Bowl quarterbacks Russell Wilson. Metcalf will enter the final year of his rookie contract in 2022, meaning discussions over a lucrative contract extension may have already begun. He will make about $20 million a year after hitting 3,170 yards and 29 touchdowns in his first three seasons.

Is he worth it? It’s correct. But if Seattle decides to break up with Wilson and start rebuilding, he probably doesn’t. Metcalf could give Seahawks a first pick in a trade – remember what Dallas gave up Amari Cooper in 2018? – and the 2022 draft class is loaded with talented pass catchers. Conceivably they could claim a fourth and first round for Metcalf.

The Eagles have the draft assets to make a compelling offer, plus Philadelphia has been rated highly on Metcalf once (see: JJ Arcega-Whiteside). If he’s available, they’ll have to look into it.

Target those Alabama boys

Ridley and Cooper are both Alabama products and that’s the new path for Philly. Ridley actually played college football with Jalen Hurts and DeVonta Smith, so it’s not unfair to assume the chemistry is still there.

Those three boys pose for a picture together after Week 1, only fueling rumors that they were campaigning for a reunion. Ridley is a free agent in 2023 and earn $11.1 million next season. He is rumored to be looking for a “new start.”

Meanwhile, Cooper seems right from the start with Cowboys owner Jerry Jones. The team refused to commit to him long-term even though Cooper purchased a new $6 million home in North Texas. He is under contract until 2024 at a average annual salary 20 million dollars. However, the 27-year-old is likely to leave in 2022. Dallas will have to make a decision on Cooper soon and it could be a divorce. His number is decreasing every aspect since 2019, his last Pro Bowl appearance.
