NFL trade rumors: Eagles to improve defense with late play

Published 3 Comments

Football News

Philadelphia Eagles could well be about to deal for a safety before the trade deadline Tuesday October 28. It has been a worrying trend in recent weeks for the Eagles, with safety Nate Allen struggling. This has led to many trade rumors, ones which are getting more and more realistic by the minute.

Eagles' safety Nate Allen made mistakes again on Sunday as Arizona Cardinals receiver John Brown burned him for a huge 75-yard touchdown.

After the game, Nate Allen came out and held his hands up and admitted the crucial game-breaking play was his fault. But if these latest strong rumors come true, it seems like Allen's admission will fall on deaf ears.

Possible replacements

There are many players that the Eagles would love to bring on board to replace the ailing safety Allen, but we're here to talk about the realistic ones. And it seems there are a couple.

ProFootballTalk reported on Sunday that the Eagles would like to make an upgrade on Nate Allen, and later on Sunday NFL Network's Ian Rapoport broke that the Eagles could be on the verge of snapping up either Bucs' Dashon Goldson or Titans' Michael Griffin.

Unwanted and injured

To add insult to injury for Allen, he may have picked up a hamstring problem after the devastating touchdown for the Cardinals' John Brown. 

Allen was asked about the trade rumors, but he remained coy and talked about his potential hamstring issue.

“I have no idea,” Allen said when asked about the report. “I gotta do some tests and stuff,” Allen said on the injury. “It’s a little tight but we’ll see. Get back to Philly, run tests and see what it is.”
