It seems like Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks has been on the trading block for as long as he has been in Philly.
Maybe even longer!
Now, however, might be the ideal time to trade the talented but delicate — body and spirit — linebacker.
And it would help the Birds’ salary cap squeeze.
Kendricks is set to have a cap hit of $7.6 million. If he is traded after June 1, the Eagles would create $6 million in cap space for 2018.
This offseason, the team gave Nigel Bradham a new deal and signed free agent linebackers Corey Nelson and Paul Worrilow to create depth at linebacker.
Kendricks is a valuable player of the Birds’ Super Bowl-winning defense, especially considering Jordan Hicks’ injury history. But the Eagles could use some cap space.
