Eagles listed as potential fit for Devin White
Back on March 22nd when the Eagles signed free agent cornerback Greedy Williams, Tampa Bay linebacker Devin White commented on Instagram, "Let's make it happen."
Now the team has a chance to bring the two players together.
White has requested a trade from the Buccaneers and CBS Sports lists the Philadelphia Eagles as one of the potential landing spots for his services.
Philadelphia has a need at White's position, with two of its starting linebackers from the 2022 season's run to the Super Bowl, T.J. Edwards and Kyzir White, departing in free agency. However, it will come down to whether or not general manager Howie Roseman opts to invest in an off-ball linebacker in the same way the Ravens did for Roquan Smith recently. Baltimore traded a second-round pick and a fifth-round pick, as well as linebacker A.J. Klein, to the Bears in exchange for Smith before proceeding to make him the highest-paid player at the position with a five-year, $100 million contract that included $60 million guaranteed.
White has been a playmaking linebacker for Tampa, racking up 20.5 sacks, 35 tackles for loss, and two defensive scores over his three-year career. He had his best season with the Bucs in 2021, making 140 tackles, 15 tackles for loss, and nine sacks that season.
Right now the Eagles would be entering campe with free agent addition, Nick Morrow and 2022 third-round pick Nakobe Dean as their starting linebackers.
So should Howie Roseman make the call to Tampa and see what the price is?
