Philadelphia Eagles owner Jeffrey Lurie will not make a move until the draft on June 22.
He’s not going to make a big splash, and he’s not willing to sell, Lurie told TheMMQB.
The Eagles will not trade Wentz or Jackson.
The two are the top three draft picks in the 2019 draft, with Matthews the No. 1 overall pick.
But they are both coming off disappointing seasons, and Lurie said the team will not get too far ahead of itself by trading the two players.
If the Eagles have to move a player, Luried said, “we’re going to have to make the most of it.
I think we’ve got enough guys.
We’re going through a tough situation.”
If the team trades a player this week, it could make sense to trade down or grab a veteran who can play in the slot.
That way, the Eagles don’t have to trade up for a wide receiver in the draft, which is one of the reasons Lurie has been willing to move up for players who fit the team’s needs.
But he said he won’t be making a big move if he doesn’t have an answer in the second round, and a draft-day trade for Matthews is unlikely.
The trade of Wentz to Philadelphia is not a done deal.
The team had no plans to trade the quarterback, who will become an unrestricted free agent on July 1.
Wentz is coming off an injury-plagued season that included a season-ending knee injury.
He has been under contract through 2021, and the Eagles believe they have the cap space to keep him, though Lurie wants to get rid of him if possible.
He said it’s important to keep Wentz in Philadelphia.
“We’re going out there and we’re going get to a place where we’re not paying him any money.
That’s where we want to be, and if we can get that done, that’s what we want,” Lurie added.
“But at the same time, it’s not something that we’re gonna do right now.”
