Entering the 2018 season, the Philadelphia Eagles are among the favorites to repeat and win the Super Bowl. Following their Super Bowl LII win over the New England Patriots, the Eagles’ front office had a simple job entering the offseason.
General manager Howie Roseman’s main job was to retain the key players on the roster and make small improvements to positions that could be upgraded. Now heading into the season opener against the Atlanta Falcons on Thursday night, the Eagles once again have one of the best rosters in the NFL.
Thus, a trade for players isn’t really necessary. But some trades the Eagles could make before the season opener can help them gain draft picks, which will be of use down the line.
If the Eagles don’t want their Super Bowl championship to be a one-off, they need to build for the future while also keeping a talented team to play each week.
These three upcoming trades will be players who are expendable due to the Eagles depth on their roster.
