Report: Eagles were in talks about a potential Dallas Goedert trade
As rosters start to take shape around the league, an interesting report has surfaced involving one of the Eagles’ premier tight ends.
Per Fansided’s Matt Lombardo, the Eagles and Vikings were recently discussing a deal that centered around the up-and-coming Dallas Goedert:
Old friend @MattLombardoNFL reports that the #Eagles and #Vikings were talking about a deal for Dallas Goedert before the latter went in another direction with Chris Herndon. Interesting to say the least after Zach Ertz’s tremendous camp— John McMullen (@JFMcMullen) September 1, 2021
According to @MattLombardoNFL the Vikings and Eagles were close to a trade involving TE Dallas Goedert, but ultimately Philadelphia’s asking price was too high.— Vikings Central (@VikesCentral) September 1, 2021
As mentioned above, Philadelphia’s asking price was too high and Minnesota ended up acquiring TE Chris Herndon from the Jets for a 4th-round pick. The Eagles are also reportedly making a “push” on a Dallas Goedert extension in the coming weeks. The 26-year-old has been a focal point of the Eagles offense for the last two seasons and continues to trend upward as the eventual successor to Zach Ertz.
For much of the offseason, Ertz was widely speculated to be the tight end leaving Philly. Ertz spoke with the media today for the first time since last season, stating that “relationships have been mended” and that he’s moving on from the offseason.
All signs point to Jalen Hurts and the Eagles heading into the year with both their top tight ends ready to bounce back from a disappointing 2020 season.
