The Philadelphia Eagles can become a special team if they are able to shore up one of their weaknesses. With the NFL trade deadline quickly approaching, the Eagles are looking at addressing their biggest need — wide receiver.
Wide receiver is the one spot on the offense where the Eagles can use some assistance. Rookie quarterback Carson Wentz will be better served with a few passing targets. Wentz has the Philadelphia Eagles on solid footing with a 4-2 record, but they are in the thick of a crowded NFC East divisional picture. Every team in the NFC East has a record of 4-3 or better. The Eagles getting Carson Wentz some help at wide receiver could separate them from the pack.
As of now, Jordan Matthews is the only reliable receiver on the Eagles’ roster. Everyone else is still trying to prove their worth to the team. That will not stop the Philadelphia Eagles from exploring the NFL trade market, and there is strong chance the Eagles will add a wide receiver before the end of the deadline.
