HEY HOWIE BOY: EAGLES SHOULD TRADE FOR RICHARD SHERMAN!

By Michael Donovan

The Eagles big boss Howie Roseman needs to use the draft to fill in his woeful secondary.

But here’s a better idea:

Trade for the Seahawks’ Richard Sherman!

The Eagles have been working to improve their secondary for a few years now, from signing Byron Maxwell to drafting Eric Rowe two years ago. They still haven’t found a mix that works, but adding Sherman would fix a lot of their problems in the secondary.

Jim Schwartz likes to have his players man up and play Cover 2 man, putting two safeties over the top of his cornerbacks. That’s not ideal for Sherman’s style of play, but with a secondary that’s in need of reworking, changing the scheme shouldn’t be too difficult.

The NFC East is loaded with wide receivers now, from Dez Bryant to Odell Beckham Jr., and the Eagles desperately need a cornerback who can match up with those guys. They haven’t had one in several years.
