See no trades.
Hear no trades.
Make no trades!
That was Eagles’ coach Doug Pederson’s reaction today:
Multiple reports emerged that the Eagles were pursuing trades for Niners receiver Torrey Smith and Bears receiver Alshon Jeffery.
“There is no legitimacy (to the rumors),” Pederson said. “I’m thrilled with the guys we have and go to work with every day.”
Pederson did not rule out a trade at any position, but insisted the team is not calling around the league, trying to add a receiver.
“Every team is trying to upgrade every position if we could,” Pederson said, “but not at this time, no.”
The Eagles could use an upgrade at the outside receiver position because of a lack of production from Nelson Agholor and Dorial Green-Beckham. Through six games, the two have combined for 31 catches for 330 yards and two touchdowns.
“Nelson can stretch it, Josh (Huff) can stretch it. I think it is protection, design of the play … when I think of stretching the field — a guy can run fast, but can they really take the top off?” Pederson said. “Those two guys are two that can do that. And Bryce Treggs.”
