After a very strange Tuesday, in which it initially seemed the Eagles received offensive lineman Josh Kline and a draft pick from the Patriots in exchange for Eric Rowe, before Kline was removed from the deal, things have been cleared up and made official.
The actual, official transaction: the Eagles sent Eric Rowe to the Patriots, and the Patriots sent a 2018 fourth-round draft pick to the Eagles.
The pick is believed to be conditional, with a possible upgrade to a third-round pick based on playing incentives from Rowe.
[UPDATE: 2:16 PM] - According to PhillyVoice's Jimmy Kempski, the draft pick is contingent on Rowe's snap count in the next two years.
NFL source: Eric Rowe trade conditions: 4th Rd pick becomes a 3 if Rowe plays 50% of the snaps in either 2016 or 2017.— Jimmy Kempski (@JimmyKempski) September 7, 2016
You may recall, the Eagles traded up five picks in the 2015 Draft to select Rowe, a supposedly diverse defensive back, out of Utah.
Rowe piled up 24 tackles and one interception in his rookie season with the Eagles, starting the final five games of the year in relief of an injured Nolan Carroll.
But it seems Rowe didn't mesh with the Doug Pederson regime, as he never got on the coaches' good side during the preseason.
