The Eagles, who are in need of a running back, could really use Lions running back LeGarrette Blount again. Despite his low yards/carry stat, Blount demonstrates competent blocking and leadership skills.
With Lions quarterback Matthews Stafford catching up to his age, a QB acquisition by the Lions wouldn’t be the dumbest thing.
With the likeliness of Eagles QB Nick Foles leaving, the Eagles could either franchise tag him or exercise his $20 million option for next season, then trade him for an asset – Blount.
Here’s what the trade could look like…
Lions receive: QB Nick Foles
Eagles receive: RB LeGarrette Blount
I wouldn’t call this likely, but knowing the NFL, you truly do never know what isn’t likely of happening.Follow @EaglesFeast
