Despite a late-season collapse, the Philadelphia Eagles decided not to blow things up. They did fire both their offensive and defensive coordinators as Brian Johnson was replaced with Kellen Moore and Sean Desai moved on so Vic Fangio could come in. But outside of that, they kept the nucleus of the team together and will give head coach Nick Sirianni another season.

They also were able to land some help in free agency. Howie Roseman landed Saquon Barkley and brought back C.J. Gardner-Johnson to give each side of the ball a shot in the arm. That doesn't mean they shouldn't explore more moves, especially if they can pull off a trade for these three players before the draft.

Trade Pick 161 and a Future Fifth to the Carolina Panthers for Tommy Tremble

Dallas Goedert remains a solid starting tight end but the depth behind him is questionable. The Eagles currently have Grant Calcaterra and Albert Okwuegbunam, Jr. as their primary reserves. They could look to improve their depth by making an offer for Tommy Tremble of the Carolina Panthers.

Tremble is in the final year of his rookie deal and the Panthers could be motivated to take a couple of late-round picks to clear his salary from their books — they would get $3.116 million in savings making this move. He also has yet to live up to his third-round status with fewer than 200 yards in each of his first three seasons in the league.

Even with his modest numbers, he would offer a better threat in the passing game than any of the backups the Eagles currently have.
