GM makes shocking statement as he claims Eagles’ May Trade for $18 Million Playmaking Quarterback…

GM makes a surprising assertion suggesting that the Philadelphia Eagles may pursue a trade for a high-value quarterback worth $18 million. Speculation is mounting around the potential acquisition of Justin Fields from the Chicago Bears. Analysts like Benjamin Allbright and former NFL general manager Michael Lombardi highlight Philadelphia as a likely destination for Fields, especially considering the lack of viable trade options for the Bears.

Lombardi, speaking on a podcast, suggests that the Eagles could benefit from acquiring Fields, envisioning him as a backup to current quarterback Jalen Hurts. This move could add pressure on Hurts despite his lucrative contract extending to 2028.

Fields’ affordable $6 million cap hit for 2024, as part of his rookie deal, makes him an attractive prospect. However, his future contract extension demands may complicate matters. With limited potential landing spots remaining, including the Minnesota Vikings and Las Vegas Raiders, Fields’ options are narrowing. The Eagles’ recent signings of Saquon Barkley and Bryce Huff illustrate their active participation in the NFL free agency market. Barkley’s contract with the Eagles surpasses the franchise tag number, making him one of the highest-paid running backs in NFL history.
