The NFL Trade deadline is quickly approaching, with no deals allowed to be agreed upon after Halloween at 4 p.m.

So what are some of the things the Eagles could be looking to do?  According to Senior NFL insider Dianna Russini of The Athletic, Howie Roseman is working the phones looking to add talent to the roster.

The Eagles are apparently staying put on running back Rashaad Penny, knowing depth will be necessary for a team that should be making a long postseason run. Philly is looking to make some additions on defense after they suffered a handful of injuries in the defensive backfield, specifically targeting a safety.

The Eagles keeping Penny isn't a huge surprise, what has been a surprise is the lack of use he has gotten this season.  So far the former Seahawk has just three carries for nine yards and has been a healthy scratch for most of the season.

When healthy in Seattle, Penny was a tremendous producer, averaging over six yards per carry over his last 15 games. He had 1,095 yards and eight scores on just 176 carries, but the Eagles haven't given him much of an opportunity. His problem has been staying on the field, he has played in just 43 games since being drafted in the first round in the 2018 draft.

As for the defensive side of the ball, the team could be looking to add more safety help and a slot corner. Injuries have been an issue with the secondary with Avonte Maddox and Zech McPhearson already lost for the season. Bradley Roby, Reed Blankenship, Justin Evans, Darius Slay and James Bradberry have all missed games this season.
