Report: Eagles believed to be open to dealing WR Jordan Matthews and QB Chase Daniel at right price
5 March 2017 Eagles News
Let the games begin. Per a report by Charles Robinson of Yahoo.com, the Eagles are believed to be open to dealing wide receiver Jordan Matthews and quarterback Chase Daniel at the right price.
If someone makes a solid offer to #Eagles for backup QB Chase Daniel, I believe they're open to dealing him. Same for WR Jordan Matthews.

For starters, Daniel is due a lot of money. He has a cap hit of $8 million. For a backup, that is not really ideal money. Trading him would save the Eagles $1 million. However, having Daniel on the team does have its benefits. He is seen as an ideal mentor to Carson Wentz.
Jordan Matthews is a ideal slot wide receiver, but was used a lot on the outside for the Eagles.. Although he was the team’s best receiver, he did have some flaws. Jordan Matthews is set to be a free agent after this season. If they want to move on, now might be an ideal time.
