Eagles’ Pederson Denies WR Trade Interest

Will the Eagles make a move for a wide receiver between now and the November trade deadline? Despite rumors linking them to Torrey Smith of the 49ers, coach Doug Pederson says that no such deal is brewing. Doug Pederson (vertical)

I’m happy with the guys we have,” Pederson told reporters moments ago (Twitter link via Eliot Shorr-Parks of NJ.com).

Pederson went on to say that he is happy with the group of receivers that he already has. That group is anchored by Jordan Matthews, Nelson Agholor, and Josh Huff with support from offseason trade acquisition Dorial Green-Beckham and waiver pickup Bryce Treggs. That may not be the most talented WR bunch in the NFL, but the Eagles might not need to tinker with things too much as they stand at 4-2. It’s also worth mentioning that both of the Eagles’ losses were tightly contested games. They fell 24-23 to the Lions and 27-20 to the Redskins. Meanwhile, they have notable wins over the Steelers and Vikings.

If Pederson opts to make changes to his receiver group, he could also turn to practice squad WRs Byron Marshall, Paul Turner, and David Watford.

    Dez would be an option from the cowboys if they weren’t in the same division. But with Dez not fitting in with Dak and Zeke and with them wanting a good WR, Dez would be the option. But obviously the cowboys aren’t gonna help the eagles, and even then jerry loves Dez and will hold on tight even though it’s obvious at this point they should trade him, his contract, and his attitude.

      We had T.O. Already, no thanks!

      • Brian

        There’s a greater chance the Eagles sign T.O. then they acquire Dez.

        • Scott

          WE NEED T.O. BACK ASAP

    49ers WR Torry Smith would be nice and most likely. But I love to have Bears WR Jeffery, bucs Jackson, giants Cruz could be cheap after Beckham taking over

    • Carson

      Bucs Jackson? Are you crazy? Guy is old and constantly injured. The only WR you mentioned worth having is Jeffrey

  3. Lisa

    Paul Turner. He catches everything. Also, trade Agholor.

  4. Reggie

    We need a WR to take the top off. And that can catch the ball

  5. Soteh

    I hope Pederson is saying that to not demoralize his WRs, but let’s be honest, JMat is inconsistent, DGB is still grasping the offense and Agholor is not that good… get Jefferey with a 3rd or 4th round pick or just do Nothing…. trade Agholor for a 5-6 rounder and move on..
