What would the Eagles need to give up to get D.K. Metcalf?
If the Eagles add another wide receiver this offseason, keep an eye on Seattle Seahwks star wide out D.K. Metcalf.
With some big name wide receivers already moved, Metcalf could be the next wide out land with a new team, before the Seahawks have to play him a big-time extension.
Davante Adams and Tyreek Hill have already been moved for significant draft capital this offseason and the Eagles have plenty of picks to offer if Seattle is ready to move on from the 24-year old, who is entering the final year of his contract.
Metcalf has always been a name Eagles fans have thought about, after the team selected J.J. Arcega-Whiteside with pick No 57, Metcalf was taken by Seattle with pick 64.
So what would the Eagles need to give up to get Metcalf in midnight green?
Well for starters one of their first-round picks.
The Packers received a 2022 first and second-round pick from the Raiders in exchange for Davante Adams, who then signed a five-year, $141.25 million contract, making him the highest-paid wideout in the league.
Kansas City got even more from Miami for Hill, landing a five total picks, including a 2022 first-round and second-round pick. Hill later signed a four-year, $120 million extension that includes $72 million in guarantees.
So a deal for Metcalf would likely be somewhere in between, with a first-round and second-round pick the minimum value. Philadelphia has 10 picks in all, including pick No. 51 in Round 2, pick 83 in Round 3, pick 124 in Round 4 and three total picks in Round 5.
Metcalf had 75 catches for 967 yards and 12 touchdowns in 2021 and had 1,303 yards on 83 catches, including 10 touchdowns in 2020.
He would give quarterback Jalen Hurts another weapon and the Eagles a dangerous duo at wide receiver. Metcalf, paired with last years first-round pick, DeVonta Smith, along with tight end Dallas Clark could give the Eagles a very prolific offense.
My thoughts would be with Seattle having offensive line issues, a deal involving a player like Andre Dillard, plus a first-round, second-round and fifth-round pick could get the job done.
