Eagles Unlikely To Be Active At The Trade Deadline

Eagles HC Chip Kelly mentioned Monday morning that he doesn’t expect them to be heavily involved in trades leading up to Tuesday’s deadline.

“The trade deadline overblown,” Kelly said, per Les Bowen. “I don’t anticipate doing anything. I’m very happy w team we have right now. I love the way they can compete.”

Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk, citing a league source, reported Sunday that the Eagles are looking to add a “starting-caliber” safety to their roster.

According to Florio, the Eagles are happy with free safety Malcolm Jenkins. However, they are reportedly looking to upgrade their strong safety position and Nate Allen didn’t help himself on Sunday after allowing John Brown to get by him for a touchdown.

Florio mentions that potential trade targets for the Eagles are currently unknown, but Ian Rapoport tosses out Buccaneers S Dashon Goldson and Titans S Michael Griffin, who reportedly both could be had at right price.

Goldson’s name has been floated as a guy who could be available and Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com previously mentioned that Tennessee could field offers for Griffin. 

We’ll have more updates leading up to Tuesday’s trade deadline.
