REPORT: Philadelphia Eagles Engaged in Trade Talks With Denver Broncos

The Philadelphia Eagles have an atrocious group of linebackers and not a single player on their defense appears willing to make a tackle, so it comes as no surprise that they are looking to upgrade on that side of the ball. Per multiple reports, the Eagles have engaged in trade talks with the Denver Broncos.

A former first-rounder pick, linebacker D.J. Williams, is the subject of the trade talks. Williams is in his 8th season and has racked up 737 tackles, 16.5 sacks, ten forced fumbles and two interceptions in his career.

Williams shipping off to Philly would be a good trade for both sides. It would likely include draft picks headed to the Broncos and the Eagles would get their upgrade at linebacker. Sayre Bedinger, a lead editor over at our sister site NFLMocks.com, points out that the recent emergence of Broncos linebacker Wesley Woodyard makes Williams a disposable asset.
