Although their record is not perfect, the Philadelphia Eagles is still enjoying a pretty good start to the 2016 NFL season. However, according to rumors, it seems the team is looking to part ways with its wide receiver Nelson Agholor, Josh Huff and Dorial Green-Beckham through trade deals.
Although the Eagles are currently enjoying a 4-2 record, they can still do a lot better especially with the right set of players. Apparently, the team is aware of this which is why the Philadelphia front has reportedly been busy calling up other franchise to inquire about possible trades.
According to these reports, the Eagles are interested in adding veteran wide receivers to their roster. These rumors, of course, don't sit well with the guys who are currently holding the Eagles' top 3 wide receiver spots.
But then again, although these reports have not yet been confirmed, they are based on the fact that Agholor, Huff and Green-Beckham aren't that impressive on the field. And, their lack of production could soon drive the Philadelphia organization to seek receivers who are more reliable.
There are no confirmations yet as to which teams the Eagles are talking to but Alshon Jeffrey of the Chicago Bears and Torrey Smith of the San Francisco 49ers have been linked to the trade rumors involving Philadelphia.
As for the Eagles' three receivers, they are currently trying to maintain their focus and ignore the trade speculations surrounding them.
"We all have a job to do here, and if you're worried about somebody else, you're going to lose sight of your own job," Agholor said. "Just like anybody else in any workplace, you need to focus on yourself and execute your job."
"It's something I'm completely not worried about," Green-Beckham added. "I'm just really focusing on myself and whatever happens, happens."
As noted by the receivers, they intend to use the trade rumors to motivate their selves to perform better for the team.
"It motivates you, especially if you're still around," Agholo said. "Or if you get sent somewhere else, you understand that you have to wake up. You have to wake up and you have to make plays."
