What would it take for the Eagles to trade Andre Dillard?
The NFL trade deadline is on Tuesday Nov 1.
While the Eagles have already swung one deal, they could be looking to make another one.
This all started Wednesday, when ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported the team was adding edge-rusher Robert Quinn. However, that doesnt mean they are done, and they could use one of their assets to add to their stockpile of draft picks.
As you see above from Adam Schefter, the Eagles have plenty of draft capital, bit could add more if they nove a player like Andre Dillard.
According to NFL insider Jeremy Fowler, the offensive tackle could be acquired by another team for likely "a third-rounder."
An Eagles player that still has trade interest is left tackle Andre Dillard. Teams I've talked to believe the Eagles would move him but need a good pick to do so, most likely a third-rounder.
Dillard is playing out the last year of his rookie deal. The former Washington State first-round pick is currently a backup to Jordan Mailata, and hasnt played a snap this season.
Dillard has been solid, but not spectacular, dealing with a variety of injuries with the Eagles. But he’s has shown flashes that he can start in this league, which is starving for better offensive line.
He’s started in nine of the 32 games he's appeared in since being drafted in 2019.
If the Eagles do move Dillard, it would be to get compensation now as opposed to letting him walk in free agency this spring. GM Howie Roseman has to decide if keeping Dillard as depth is more important than adding more picks for the future.
Jack Driscoll did show he is capable of filling in at left tackle in the short term if needed, bit Dillard is certainly a better option.
The trade deadline is in just six days, on November 1.
It should be a interesting few days for Eaglea fans.
