Hey!

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles-Training Camp Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports

Hey now! The Philadelphia Eagles have traded offensive lineman Matt Tobin to the Seattle Seahawks for a draft pick. Here’s a look at the specific details:

EAGLES RECEIVE: Fifth-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft

SEAHAWKS RECEIVE: Matt Tobin, 7th-round pick in the 2018 NFL Draft.

This trade comes as a surprise because ... who knew Tobin had any trade value? It’s only a swap of late round picks, but still! Not a bad deal by Howie Roseman to get value for someone who wasn’t even a lock to make the Eagles’ final roster.

Tobin has been a backup at offensive tackle and guard ever since signing with the Eagles as an undrafted free agent in 2013. He’s not an ideal starter but he’s an experienced backup.

Here’s a recap of the Eagles’ draft picks in 2018.
