The Philadelphia Eagles didn’t trade for Jalen Ramsey and at least one player on the team isn’t so happy that the stud cornerback ended up being acquired by the Los Angeles Rams instead. Interesting tidbit from ESPN’s Josina Anderson:
#Eagles player to me on Jalen Ramsey going to the #Rams: "We dropped the ball. I don't even want to talk about that (!@#^). Everybody knew what it was going to take to get him. I could've told you that."— ig: josinaanderson (@JosinaAnderson) October 17, 2019
Hmmmm. Who could it be?
Nelson Agholor immediately comes to mind. He is an expert when it comes to dropping the ball, after all.
Cheap shot aside, there is some reason to believe the comment may have come from an Eagles wide receiver. We’ve previously documented that Anderson has a close relationship with Alshon Jeffery. You can find proof: here, here, here, here, here, here, and here.
Regardless of who the source is, it doesn’t seem great that an Eagles player is questioning Howie Roseman’s decision-making to a reporter who’s willing to publicly share that information. Now we know at least one player doesn’t really think the organization is doing everything they can to win.
This isn’t to suggest the Eagles should make moves just to keep the players happy. Management has to do what they think is best for the team. But that doesn’t mean other voices inside the organization are always on the same page.
