Report: Eagles Made Offer for Russell Wilson
The Eagles have said they are committed to quarterback Jalen Hurts for the 2022 season, but Howie Roseman kind of kept the door open on making a move if one was there to make.
"Yeah, there's no doubt about it," Roseman said when asked if Hurts is going to be the teams starting quarterback after more evaluation and research. "I think when you talk about all the things we talked about at the end of the season, nothing has changed."
That was back on March 3.
He stated that nothing has changed. However, he did add, that one thing that changed from the end of the season, was the opportunity to add."
"I think what really has changed for us is the opportunity to add," Roseman admitted.
Well apparently there was an opportunity and the Eagles jumped at it, according to Jake Heaps of Seattle Sports 710. Heaps was appearing on a radio show in Denver and stated that Seattle turned down offers from two NFC East teams.
"He turned down the Washington [Commanders] offer. He turned down an offer from Philly during the Combine."
So it looks like the Eagles did have interest in Wilson, but for what ever reason, they couldn't get a deal done. Keep in mind Wilson has a no-trade clause, and had said he did not want to play on the east coast.
In the end, Wilson is now in Denver. Hurts is still in Philadelphia.
