EAGLES DITCHING BUSTS ANDREW DILLARD, DEREK BARNETT TUESDAY?

By Max Harper

Tuesday is the trade deadline for the Eagles and the NFL.

And Howie Roseman could ditch two of his biggest draft busts:

Offensive tackle Andrew Dillard, who was drafted 22nd overall in 2019, and defensive end Derek Barnett, who was taken with the 14th pick in 2017.

Here’s what SI.com thinks:

The Eagles are already looking at three first-round draft picks in 2022, not to mention an additional fifth-rounder acquired from the Zach Ertz trade.

At the moment, they have three picks in the top 13. That won’t stop them from shedding more assets as they get closer to the end of a developmental season for Jalen Hurts.

Andre Dillard has surfaced in various reports, signaling an interest to develop a market for the former first-round pick.

Another former first-round pick, Derek Barnett, has also been floated ahead of the deadline, though the Eagles may have to eat some salary and find a dreamer of a defensive coordinator assured he can change Barnett’s fortunes.

Barnett’s usage has ballooned from about 50 to 60% to almost 90% of snaps over the last two weeks.
