The Eagles’ list of wide receiver targets before the trade deadline reportedly included Robby Anderson.

Chris Mortensen of ESPN reported on Sunday morning that the Eagles called the Jets about the wideout before they swung a trade with the Lions for Golden Tate. The Eagles sent a third-round pick to Detroit.

Anderson is set for restricted free agency after this season while Tate is in the final year of his contract. Anderson also makes far less than Tate this season.

Anderson missed last Sunday’s game with an ankle injury and he was listed as questionable on Friday. According to multiple reports, both he and Quincy Enunwa, who has missed two games, will be active against the Dolphins.

  1. Eagles list 1 A. Cooper. Epic Fail. Eagles from former champs to 500. Seattle, Eagles, Saints, I mean the list is long of One and Done teams. Not easy to win more then one in a life time non the less in a decade or two. Some fans never see their teams win one. Let that sink in before all the history talk. Eagles oh but we have a dynasty, ah nope. you have a 500 team.

    All being said Tate always has big games against the Cowboys. He is a productive player even going on 31 years old.
    If you make the playoffs you will not go far because no running threat and no oline. Wentz poor guy i havent seen this type of beating since someone stuck a banana down TheTruth’s pants and let a silverback lose.

    a 3rd round pick for a almost 31 year old …. wow.

  2. I don’t think the Eagles had any interest in A Cooper other than trolling the Cowboys and running up the price.According to ESPN insider the Cowboys had what they believed to be a deal with a third, Philly offered a second so the Cowboys were pressured to give their first for the receiver that leads the league in dropped passes over the last two years. Cooper also leads the league with games of fewer than 20 receiving yards. Great pick up Dallas! Lmao

  3. If jets were a lot healthier I prolly would have traded Anderson. He is talented but doesn’t seem too fit in with jets offense. And also seems too be a little bit of a headache. I wouldn’t trust paying him but he has been a steal for Mac being undrafted and cheap now

  4. Caliz, you gave up a 1st for cooper. Compare the 2 and see who is better. Just remember we are the champs… 🏆

    Remember who your quarterback is too…. 😂

  5. Cowboys so desperate to have an average wr that they give up a #1. Problem is with the qb. I think that’s quite clear to everyone else. Here’s how much confidence they have in dak; the owner was telling him to use his legs more and run as often as needed . . . .IN THE PRESEASON! Lol what a joke!

  6. No one in the NFC east is going anywhere, these trades are just trying
    to keep the fans interested and buy tickets and merchandise.
    Jerry also got everyone to shut up about firing Garrett… in the short term.
