Eagles Made Attempt To Trade For Duane Brown Ahead Of Deadline

According to Jay Glazer of FOX Sports, the Eagles made an attempt to trade for LT Duane Brown before the deadline earlier in the week.

This fits with a report from Mike Lombardi of The Ringer, who mentioned that Philadelphia was in on every available tackle leading up to the deadline after they lost LT Jason Peters for the season, so this doesn’t come as a huge surprise.

There was also speculation that Bills LT Cordy Glenn could be available for trade. Although, many felt that his contract and Buffalo’s asking price would likely prevent a deal from getting done, which proved to be the case.

Brown was clearly the best available tackle option, but the Seahawks managed to strike a deal with Houston to land Brown and a fifth-round pick for a 2018 third- and a 2019 second-round pick.

Outside of Brown and Glenn, there wasn’t a lot of names mentioned as trade candidates at the offensive tackle position.

The Eagles ultimately stuck with their current group of offensive linemen and will move forward with Halapoulivaati Vaitai (left tackle), Stefen Wisniewski (left guard), Jason Kelce (center), Brandon Brooks (right guard) and Lane Johnson (right tackle).
