NFL Rumors: Trades, Eagles, Lions


Mike Sando of ESPN offers some trades that he believes should happen before Tuesday’s deadline.

The trades include:

  1. Dolphins trading WR Jarvis Landry to the Chargers or Bears for a 2018 mid-round pick.
  2. Bills trade LT Cordy Glenn to the Giants for a 2018 second- and conditional-round pick.
  3. Bengals trade QB Andy Dalton to the Browns for 2018 second- and fifth-round picks.
  4. Colts trade CB Vontae Davis to the Saints or Eagles a 2018 fifth or sixth-round pick.
  5. Patriots trade CB Malcolm Butler to the Saints or Eagles for a 2018 fourth-round pick.
  6. Lions trade TE Eric Ebron to the Patriots for a 2018 fourth-round pick.
  7. Seahawks trade CB Jeremy Lane to the Chargers for a 2018 seventh-round pick.
  8. Chargers trade DE Jeremiah Attaochu to the Seahawks or Patriots for a conditional 2018 pick.

Sando also offers three potential quarterback trades for the Jaguars to net them an upgrade at quarterback.

  1. Giants trade QB Eli Manning to the Jaguars for 2018 first- and fourth-round picks.
  2. Chargers trade QB Philip Rivers to the Jaguars for 2018 first- and fifth-round picks.
  3. Bengals trade QB Andy Dalton to the Jaguars for 2018 second- and fifth-round picks.


Matt Lombardo of offers five players the Eagles should consider trading for before Tuesday’s deadline and offers analysis for why each of these players makes sense for Philadelphia and what it could cost them.

Lombardo’s list includes:

  1. Texans OT Duane Brown
  2. Bills OT Cordy Glenn
  3. Colts WR T.Y. Hilton
  4. Falcons RB Tevin Coleman
  5. Lions retired WR Calvin Johnson


Lions TE Eric Ebron told reporters that he’ll be fine whether he’s traded or not before tomorrow’s deadline.

“Look, I’m going to be happy no matter the decision,” Ebron said, via Kyle Meinke of “If I’m here, I’ll be happy. If I go anywhere else, I’m going to be happy. That’s just how I roll, man. (Shoot), I’ve been to about 10 schools in one year in New Jersey. I’ll be all right.

Reports from Sunday mentioned that Ebron is available for trade and the Lions will “almost surely” move him (NFLTR).

“It is what it is,” Ebron said of the trade reports. “They got ’til Tuesday. This is a business. If they feel like they want to cut ties with me, they’ll cut ties. If they feel like they can continue to use me and my skills and my abilities, then (shoot), let’s do it. We still got a long season. It’s getting short, but it’s still long. It is what it is.

These trade ideas seem terrible. Why would Chargers trade for Jarvis Landry when they just traded away a receiver because they have so many talented. Bears maybe but that doesn’t look like a team a receiver away from contending. I could sooner see New England who can’t keep receivers on the field. Or maybe Buffalo who now fines itself in the playoff race with very little receiver talent. Giants trade for Glenn? Maybe but they’re on there way to a top 5 pick so maybe just drafting a top tackle prospect and keeping their 2nd rounder makes more sense? Seahawks… Read more »
