EAGLES TRADE: GET WR GREEN-BECKHAM FOR G/T DENNIS KELLY!

By Michael Donovan

The Eagles have acquired WR Dorial Green-Beckham from the Tennessee Titans in exchange for G/T Dennis Kelly.

Beckham was originally a second-round draft pick (40th overall) out of the University of Oklahoma in 2015. At 6-5, 237-pounds, he played in all 16 games with five starts last season, rounding out his rookie campaign in Tennessee with 32 receptions for 549 yards and four touchdowns.

His team-leading 17.2 yards per reception ranked sixth in the NFL (first among rookies) and is the fourth-best mark in Titans single-season franchise history, trailing only WR Justin Gage (2008 – 19.1), WR Kenny Britt (2010 – 18.5) and WR Justin McCareins (2003 – 17.3).

Among his fellow wide receivers in the 2015 NFL Draft class, Green-Beckham ranked fifth in receiving yards. He totaled more receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns than six of the seven wide receivers selected before him in the draft, trailing only Raiders WR Amari Cooper (72 receptions for 1,070 yards and six touchdowns).

Green-Beckham had 87 receptions for 1,278 yards and 17 touchdowns in two years at the University of Missouri, before transferring to the University of Oklahoma in 2014. He sat out his lone season at Oklahoma due to NCAA transfer rules.
