Eagles Players Who Should be on the Trade Block After Week 3

Joe Tansey

The Philadelphia Eagles have been one of the most active teams on the trade market in recent years.

A.J. Brown, C.J. Gardner-Johnson and Darius Slay were acquired through trades to improve holes on the team's roster in that span.

Philadelphia has one of the best rosters in the NFL, and it is hard to imagine the team parting ways with anyone after its 3-0 start.

There are a few backups on the Philadelphia roster who could be the topic of conversations between Eagles general manager Howie Roseman and his colleagues across the league.

The Eagles would likely gain a late-round NFL draft or two if one of their potentially coveted backups were wanted on the trade market.

That should be the only roster movement made by the team right now with everything going right to start the 2022 campaign.

Trey Sermon's stock has plummeted over the last 12 months.

He was signed to the Eagles roster after he failed to impress in his second training camp with the San Francisco 49ers.

Sermon has not seen the field for the Eagles in 2022. Miles Sanders, Boston Scott and Kenneth Gainwell have been the team's active running backs.

The 23-year-old does not appear to be making enough inroads on the roster to be on the active gameday squad, so that may make it hard for the Eagles to deal him.

The second-year running back could fill a backup or third-string role elsewhere in the league if injuries open up a spot for him.

Philadelphia may be willing to part ways with Sermon for a late-round draft pick in case he does not pan out in its backfield.

The Eagles may want to hold on to Sermon to see if he improves and bolsters his stock, but through three weeks, it does not appear that will happen.

K'Von Wallace lost a path to defensive snaps when the Eagles traded for C.J. Gardner-Johnson at the end of the preseason.

The 25-year-old is a backup safety behind Gardner-Johnson and Marcus Epps, and he has not been able to earn many defensive snaps, even with solid special teams play.

Wallace has been on the field for less than 10 percent of Philadelphia's defensive snaps in each of the first three weeks.

Unless an injury occurs, Wallace does not appear to be in line for many defensive snaps as the season goes on.

He could still play an important role on special teams, but there may be a few teams that want to take a chance on him as a safety more than a special teams ace.

The Eagles will not get much in return for Wallace, if a trade happens, but he is one of the more obvious trade targets on the star-laden roster.

Gardner Minshew

The Eagles should not be actively shopping Gardner Minshew, but they could entertain a few calls from around the league if quarterback situations become dire.

We have already seen a handful of injuries to starting signal-callers in the NFL, and some franchises may not have a backup of Minshew's caliber.

Minshew is firmly planted on the bench with Jalen Hurts playing at a Most Valuable Player level. He is a solid backup to have if the worst-case scenario emerges for the Eagles.

Philadelphia may not be willing to let Minshew go in case the worst-case scenario becomes real. It would be left with Ian Book as the backup if Minshew is dealt.

A Minshew trade does not seem likely, but if you look around the Eagles roster, he is one of the few players the other 31 teams would call about, and the phone would be at least answered.
