Emergency Jordan Matthews podcast crew: John Barchard, Matt Dering, Ben Natan, Vince Quinn

The BGN Radio crew is pretty much in agreement that the Eagles made the right move by trading Jordan Matthews for Ronald Darby. Matthews wasn't going to be around after this year anyway and Darby is an immediate and long-term fix at the cornerback position. Matthews will be missed in some ways but the Eagles' receiving corps has looked good this offseason so it's not exactly like the cupboard is bare for Carson Wentz.

The crew talks about what this trade means for the Eagles now and moving forward
