‘NO FIRE SALE’ FOR EAGLES TODAY, ESPECIALLY NOT FOR FLETCH!

By Max Harper

The NFL trade deadline is today at 4 pm, and Eagles great defensive tackle Fletch Cox is still being buzzed about.

According to CBS Sports’ Jason La Canfora, “the kind of inquiries that have come in thus far aren’t close to facilitating a trade for” Fletcher Cox and “he is not a player the Eagles are marketing or hopeful of moving.”

La Canfora, who says Eagles GM Howie Roseman likely isn’t done making moves, but that this won’t be “a fire sale.”

The rebuilding Eagles are drawing heavy attention around the NFL as the trade deadline nears, league sources said, with other teams making repeated inquiries for star defensive tackle Fletcher Cox and emerging offensive tackle Andre Dillard.

And though Philadelphia’s aggressive general manager Howie Roseman is likely not done making trades, the odds of a blockbuster are not high.

The Eagles have recently traded tight end Zach Ertz and veteran quarterback Joe Flacco, and remain very open to moving other veterans in the final year of their contracts, league sources said. But this is not a fire sale, sources said, the likes of which is going on in Houston with most of the roster available for trade, and the Eagles will be judicious about not just dumping salary of players who could still help them in 2022 and beyond. […]

The Eagles do have a core of other players with expiring contracts that includes defensive linemen Derek Barnett and Ryan Kerrigan, center Jason Kelce and safety Rodney McLeod. At this point is more likely they would deal a pending free agent over someone with term remaining on their deal, with Roseman’s reputation as a dealmaker adding to the inquiries the team is receiving.
