Eagles Could Trade For Texans ‘Odd Man Out’ Kenny Stills
The Houston Texans could very well be looking to part ways with wide receiver Kenny Stills. Even though they traded DeAndre Hopkins, they still brought in Randall Cobb and Brandin Cooks this offseason. Not to mention Will Fuller will be looking to take the next step if he can avoid injury.
With Will Fuller set to take on the No. 1 receiver role and Brandin Cooks + Randall Cobb under contract for multiple seasons, I wonder what Kenny Stills' future with the #Texans is.
Stills is entering the final year of his contract, which includes $7M cap hit but no dead money.

Kenny Stills has only missed five games in his 7-year career while being a reliable deep threat. He has averaged 15.7 yards-per-reception for his career while racking up 299 catches for 4,699 yards and 36 touchdowns. Stills, who turns 28 on April 22nd, led the entire league in yards-per-catch (20) in 2013.
There’s no question the Eagles need to address the wide receiver position arguably more than any other position this offseason. Lucky for them, this year’s WR draft class is one of the most talented in recent memory. With that said, I wouldn’t rule out a trade to help bolster the position. Especially if a team like Houston is looking to dump a player on the final year of his deal. The Eagles showed interest in Stills back in 2017 prior to the Alshon signing.
For the Eagles sake, they may not have to give up anything more than a 4th round pick for Kenny Stills. Otherwise, I would think Howie Roseman would stand pat and address the need in this year’s draft. With the Eagles glaring need at receiver and speed on offense, I wouldn’t write them off as a realistic trade partner for Kenny Stills.
