EAGLES BIG BOSS HOWIE: YOUNG WR TALENT LED TO MATTHEWS TRADE!

By Annie Ross

On the NFL Network’s “Good Morning Football” yesterday, Eagles big boss Howie Roseman explained the inside story of how and why they traded WR Jordan Matthews to the Bills for CB Ronald Darby:

“[Personnel conversations] start the minute you report to camp. We had these conversations with Buffalo throughout training camp and as we went into the first preseason game and we found a match. Hard trade to make. Jordan Matthews, extremely productive, historically productive as a Philadelphia Eagle wide receiver, and then you’re giving up a third-round pick, too,” Roseman said. “You go back to our scouting staff … they do a great job in the draft, so you’re sitting there and going, you’ve got two possible starting-caliber players. What are you getting back? Is it worthwhile for what you’re getting back?

“When we looked at our team, how the wide receivers were doing in camp, the young wide receivers, maybe it allows us to keep another young wide receiver that we couldn’t before. We just felt like this was the best for the Philadelphia Eagles at the time.”
