2. Trade for Broncos WR Jerry Jeudy

The Philadelphia Eagles might not be in the market for a receiver that is close to needing a new contract, but this is a team competing for championships right now, and sometimes you have to make moves like this in order to get over that proverbial hump.

Jerry Jeudy was a first-round pick in the vaunted 2020 NFL Draft, a class that produced so many of the star players we see in the NFL today. Notably, the Broncos and Eagles were both in the wide receiver market that offseason, and both came away from the first round of the 2020 NFL Draft with receivers. The Broncos got Jeudy at no. 15 overall, while the Eagles took Jalen Reagor 21st overall.

At this point, we know that things obviously didn't work out between the Eagles and Reagor, but things between Jeudy and the Broncos are complicated.

To this point, the Broncos have refused to trade Jeudy. They have apparently had offers on the table that they've turned down, and even amidst rumors that the Broncos might be motivated to trade Jeudy, they have kept him and they picked up his 5th-year option last offseason. Jeudy is under contract for 2024 at the price of nearly $13 million, and if he were to come to the Eagles, he'd be reuniting with a couple former Alabama pals in quarterback Jalen Hurts and wide receiver De'Vonta Smith.

Receiver may not be the top priority on Philadelphia's list, but there are connections galore in Philadelphia for Jerry Jeudy. The Eagles have made a number of deals with the Broncos since George Paton became the GM there in Denver, and Philadelphia has former Broncos executive Matt Russell in the front office alongside Howie Roseman. The Eagles also just hired Vic Fangio as defensive coordinator, and Fangio was the Broncos' head coach when they used a 1st-round pick on Jeudy.
