Philadelphia Eagles Mentioned In Blockbuster Trade For Star Corner

The NFL’s most loaded rosters belong to the Philadelphia Eagles. But, they would have added Patrick Surtain II, the top cornerback for the Denver Broncos, to make it even better if general manager Howie Roseman had his way at the trade deadline on Halloween.

That’s according to a source that Mike Florio of Pro Football Talk mentioned. ESPN’s Adam Schefter stated earlier on Sunday that the 49ers from San Francisco were keeping an eye on Surtain II.
According to a person with knowledge of the matter, the 49ers and Eagles looked into trading for Surtain.

Both of them were worried that the other might wind up with Surtain as they called the Broncos.

But it was not to be, as the Broncos demanded a significant haul in exchange for him. According to Florio, Surtain “checks every box” for the Broncos.

By a wide measure, this would have been the largest trade completed at the trade deadline. To put it simply, Surtain II is every bit the player his father was when he was on the field.

In just his second season last year, the 23-year-old was voted a first-team All-Pro at one of the most valuable positions in the game at the age of 22. The Alabama alum is still a top talent at a position where there aren’t many true difference makers, even though he hasn’t been as good this year.

However, it made sense that if the Broncos were going to forfeit Surtain II, they would want a ton of assets back. Ultimately, it should be noted that the guy selected ninth overall in the 2021 NFL Draft is only 23 years old and already a top performer in his position.

In the end, the 49ers executed a bombshell trade for former Commanders defensive end Chase Young, while the Eagles held firm at the deadline.
