Eagles trade lineman Matt Pryor to the Colts for late round draft pick
After rumblings that the Eagles were shopping one of their offensive linemen, Philadelphia has sent offensive tackle Matt Pryor to the Indianapolis Colts for a 6th round pick in the 2022 NFL Draft. Pryor has been a member of the Eagles’ o-line for the last few seasons but didn’t do much in the preseason to justify keeping him around.
Matt Pryor has been with the Eagles since he was drafted in the 6th round in the 2018 NFL Draft. Over the last few years, Philly has suffered numerous injuries to their offensive line, and Pryor saw a lot of time filling in at both tackle spots and guard during that time. With the return of Andre Dillard alongside Landon Dickerson and Nate Herbig, Matt Pryor was the odd man out.
The trade bolsters a Colts offensive line that has dealt with several injuries so far this season and provides a lineman who can fill in at several positions. It also teams up Carson Wentz with one of his former Eagles teammates, which could help him be more comfortable in the pocket. For Philadelphia, they are in the midst of trimming down their roster to 53 players ahead of today’s 4:00 deadline.
