4 Eagles Veterans Who Could Be Traded to Start a Rebuild

After getting bounced out of the playoffs by the Buccaneers, the Eagles could consider a rebuild. If that's the case, these four veteran players could be on their way out this offseason.

3. Dallas Goedert, TE

Whether it's been Jalen Hurts, Carson Wentz, or Nick Foles throwing him the ball, Dallas Goedert has been a consistent offensive presence throughout his time in Philadelphia. Over the last six seasons, the veteran tight end has caught 307 balls for 3,589 yards and 22 TDs through 83 games.

But even if he's a fan favorite, Goedert's underwhelming 2023 numbers can't be ignored. Even though he made a career-high 59 receptions, his 592 receiving yards marked the second straight year where that number declined (830 in 2021, 702 in 2022). He also went from tallying a whopping 123.6 passer rating when targeted last year to a mark of 88.0 this time around, showing a decline in reliability.

With Goedert carrying cap hits of $9.1 and $11 million over the next two seasons, the time is right for the Eagles to trade him. They don't need to carry around those hits if they aren't contending — especially if the 29-year-old's performances continue to decline. Perhaps a change in scenery could help get him back on track.

Even if the Eagles do trade Goedert, don't expect that to happen until later in the offseason. A pre-June 1 trade sees Philadelphia carrying $7.2 million in dead cap, whereas a move after that date frees up $3.8 million.
