3 NFL Trades That Should Happen in 2022, According to Coaches & Execs - Heavy
Jalen Reagor is exactly the type of player who could benefit from a change of scenery and could find his stride outside of the pressure-cooker of playing in Philadelphia as a first-round pick whose production never matched his pedigree. Reagor, 5-foot-11 and 197 pounds, has all the physical tools to be a big-play threat but has yet to consistently put it together. Now, buried in a suddenly loaded Eagles wide receiver room, behind the likes of A.J. Brown, DeVonta Smith, Quez Watkins, and Zach Pascal, the Eagles may look to take whatever they can get for Reagor. Paton and the Broncos have shown interest in Reagor, league sources have told Heavy, so perhaps Denver can find a way to maximize the TCU alum, and the Eagles can add yet another asset to Howie Roseman’s bountiful 2023 NFL draft war chest.
13 notes from Day 9 of Eagles training camp practice - BGN
Just hasn’t been a good camp for Gardner Minshew. He threw two picks in 7-on-7. The first one came when K’Von Wallace had a diving pass breakup that generated a tipped interception for Davion Taylor. On the next rep, Minshew threw a little too high on a short look to Watkins that went off his hands and ended up in the possession of Josiah Scott. Still don’t know that the Eagles will actually let Reid Sinnett climb ahead of Minshew on the depth chart. But the gap between those two could be shrinking. Minshew did have one notably good throw when he hit Jalen Reagor, who got open!, over the middle for a 25-yard gain.

Eagles training camp: Jason Kelce undergoes elbow surgery, other practice notes - The Athletic
Jason Huntley — With Gainwell and Scott both out, Huntley had a chance to work with the first-team offense when Miles Sanders was not on the field. In a team drill with the offense backed up near its own goal line, Huntley made a nice play picking up a Kyzir White blitz to free up Hurts to complete a pass. He scored a touchdown against JaCoby Stevens in running back-linebacker one-on-ones and showcased some of his top-end speed with a run around the edge and a screen in team drills. Huntley is the fastest of the Eagles’ running backs but, barring an injury, his best chance to make the roster is as the primary kickoff returner.
One riser, one faller from each NFL team during 2022 training camp - PFF
Riser: RB KENNETH GAINWELL. Kyed: Tolentino wrote that while Miles Sanders likely will still be the Eagles’ No. 1 running back, “Gainwell seems to be cemented as the team’s featured running back in high-leverage situations, including goal-line and two-minute packages.” Gainwell has been explosive a shifty in camp, per Tolentino. Faller: WR DEVON ALLEN. Kyed: Allen is a champion sprinter, but Tolentino noted that the 27-year-old wideout has shown rust in his return to football since last playing at Oregon in 2016. “He possesses world-class speed, but his feet haven’t been crisp throughout execution of his route trees at multiple levels,” per Tolentino.

As time passes, Cowboys contract with Ezekiel Elliott looks even worse - Blogging The Boys
The Cowboys made a huge mistake in tying up that much of their salary cap in a position that doesn’t deserve it. It’s hard to blame Elliott for this, he just did what most NFL players do and that is maximize their earnings in a sport where players have a relatively short playing career. But the Cowboys really fumbled the ball on this one, and next year they can finally right the wrong, to some extent. They can never get back the years they were paying too much to the running back position in terms of percentage of salary cap, but they can learn from the mistake moving forward.
Roquan Smith trade: Should Giants bid for Bears’ disgruntled linebacker? - Big Blue View
The Roquan Smith situation does bear watching for the Giants. It isn’t often that a good, young player at a player of relative need even potentially becomes available. Off-ball linebacker might not be a premium position, and big contracts can become troublesome. That said, Smith would certainly be a useful player and has a skillset the Giants just don’t have. He’s a high-volume tackler, a capable coverage player, has the upside to be a dangerous blitzer in Martindale’s scheme, and he’s young enough to be a part of the defense for another five years. What about the realities of acquiring him? Can the Giants clear out the $9.3 million in cap space without taking on future debt or gutting their roster? Are the Bears willing to take the draft equivalent of a bag of balls for a player who was a top-10 pick just four and a half years ago? Would they be willing to part ways with Barkley in order to bring in Smith?

If the Panthers trade Sam Darnold here’s what they could get in return - SB Nation
In unquestionably the funniest rumor of the offseason, the Carolina Panthers are reportedly shopping Sam Darnold. Okay, okay — we know this has been more or less dispelled by everyone asked, but it’s still incredible. Imagining the Panthers playing hard ball for months over Baker Mayfield, only to then hope to find an even bigger sucker to take Darnold off their hands is simply sublime. Especially considering there’s an identical issue with Darnold making way too much money in relation to his performance, and basically being a one-year rental for anyone involved.
