The Eagles totally leaked the Jordan Matthews trade the night before it became official

Funny how this worked out.

While the Philadelphia Eagles’ decision to trade Jordan Matthews did not come as a surprise, the timing of the deal very much did. No one expected it to take place a day after Matthews had a nice showing in the Eagles’ first preseason game.

The truth is ... we should have seen it coming. The Eagles leaked it on their Instagram page during their game against the Green Bay Packers last night!

That’s a pretty funny coincidence in hindsight.

Of course, the real story here is the caption refers to Fletcher Cox video-bombing Jordan Matthews’ interview with Eagles sideline reporter Dave Spadaro. But I’m not going to let “facts” prevent me from writing a silly story.

Cold-blooded move by the Eagles!

(In all serious, though, the Eagles would never do JMatt dirty like that. Howie Roseman was very effusive in his praise of the wide receiver upon his departure.)
