More trouble in Philly, will they make a trade?

Since the loss of Jay Ajayi in Philadelphia, there’s been too many rumors and possible trade talk popping up all over ESPN AND my timeline.

Nothing ever happens unless I speak it into existence, so here it goes. Nothing will happen. The Eagles won’t make a move for Le'Veon Bell. Or Shady McCoy. Or David Johnson.

Here’s why. (From a Holly standpoint. Because we all know, I secretly work in the office next to Dougie P).

The Bills: Want a second AND third round pick for McCoy
Holly: A 2 and 3 for recently broken ribs and an Instagram case. Hard pass.

The Steelers: Want a second round pick and a player
Holly: Deal. If you take Jalen Mills as the player
The Steelers: *dial tone*

The Cardinals: Want... To win a game.
Holly: Back injuries? No thanks, we’re good on those over here.

It’s Week 6 and with Ajayi on IR, Sproles broken into a million pieces and concerns with Clement’s never healing quad, this leaves the reigning Super Bowl champs with Smallwood. For a team that’s used to having depth at this position, I would say there’s definitely reason for panic. However, will Dougie P and Howie make a huge move? Most likely not. If they do, it’ll probably be a mediocre big guy on a 1-year. The usual. Only time will tell.
