The Eagles start training camp at NovaCare in eight days.
So everybody is hanging for meat on the bones of the Birds and their prospects.
Speaking recently on ESPN, NFL Insider Adam Schefter named the Eagles as the team best equipped to make a trade for Houston Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson (above left with current Eagles QB Jalen Hurts);
“(Watson’s) football future is in question. With camp coming up in under two weeks, that does become the question about his future. As you alluded to, he does want out of Houston, he doesn’t want to be there.
“I think the Texans have mentally and physically prepared to move on without Deshaun Watson. So the question becomes — when do the Texans trade Deshaun Watson? Is it this summer, this season, after this season?
“I personally think they will wait until his value is restored, and they don’t have to sell him, trade him off at a discounted price.
“But if and when they come to the point where they are ready to trade him, there is no team out there — no team out there — better positioned and better armed to go trade for Deshaun Watson than the Philadelphia Eagles”
Watson has been accused of sexual assault by 22 women, at last count.
And while no judge in Texas or anywhere else has rendered an opinion, why would the Eagles the Eagles expose themselves to this kind of player, talent notwithstanding?
