- ESPN’s Adam Schefter has confirmed that the Cardinals are sending the Eagles a conditional seventh-round pick in return for Barkley.
- According to Schefter, the Eagles will get to keep the pick if Barkley is on their roster for six games.
Previous reports have said that Barkley has been available for trade for a few years now.
In fact, Dianna Marie Russini reports that the Eagles turned down a fifth-round pick from the Dolphins this spring because they wanted a fourth-round selection in return for Barkley.
This is a clear indication that Tim Tebow is in position to be the team’s No. 3 quarterback this season.
Barkley, 24, still has another two years remaining on his four-year, $2.739 million rookie contract. He’ll make reasonable base salaries of $592,50o and $685,000 over the remaining two years of the agreements.
In three preseason games, Barkley has throw for 159 while completing 47.6 percent of his passes to go along with an interception.
