Deshaun Watson headed to the Eagles? Barrett Brooks feels it might be soon

Barrett Brooks has a good sense of things. long-time host Eagles Postgame Live On NBC Sports Philadelphia is also online. So when Brooks, a gentle bear for a guy who played 12 seasons in the NFL — his first four seasons with the Eagles, having been drafted into the second round of the 1995 draft of Kansas State– He says something behind it is legitimate.

Recently, Brooks said that the following grabbed the attention of more than a few locally, “I think it’s really possible that Deshaun Watson will come to the Eagles maybe by Friday, but the Eagles will have to cut the deal to let some players go, along with the picks.” The three draft in the first round.”

Brooks says his information comes from a “knowledgeable” source, with some knowledge of the inner workings of the NFL.

What makes this possible is the eagles’ big hammer: picks #15, 16, and 19 in the first round of 2022 NFL Draft. What also makes it possible came on Monday when the Eagles signed free agent and former Temple star Hasson Riddick, helping to meet the Eagles’ urgent needs.

said Brooks, who just re-signed with Eagles Postgame Live for another two years, while still being allowed to play his college games on the weekends. “The source I heard this from is restricted, and I mean related to the organization. There is no doubt that the deal will include all three first-round draft picks, and speaking to the source, Howie Roseman (Eagles general manager) is doing his bit and is willing to take the risks.”

“I would say about 90 percent can happen. This came in a casual conversation and it went so far as to say this is a done deal, the Eagles want Watson that bad. This move will put the Eagles in a new place. Watson is 26 and Galen Hurts is only 23. Getting Riddick changes what they were going to do in the first round.”

“When you look at everything, it makes sense. We’re talking about a $5 million signing bonus and a base salary of $35 million. That will go straight to the Eagles’ salary cap on Friday, after the start of the league’s new year. The first three games are worth their weight in gold. …but that will be more than the first three rounds. Everyone on the Eagles is now consumable. Even Galen Hurts. The Eagles have a competent backup in Gardner Minshew.”

“When I spoke to this source, the honorable gentleman told me that even the casting for the first role next year will be in play. We are talking about Deshaun Watson.”

Media relations and PR for the Eagles will go three times as long, given that the embattled quarterback still has 22 civil cases pending against her, despite the nine criminal complaints of sexual assault or harassment being dropped last Friday by the attorney general’s office in Harris County. .

This is definitely a very emotional moment for me,” Watson said an onslaught from the media spoke for the first time since the last time he played a game in Endgame. Texas2020 season “Today is definitely a great day and I believe my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ for allowing me the truth to be heard and I thank everyone who was part of this from seeing and hearing both sides.

“I know we’re far from done with what we need to deal with from the legal side, but today is definitely a great day. That’s what my view and my team wanted to do, is to get a fair slate of us telling our side of the story and letting the score come down to what happened. Today, that’s what the grand jury decided. I will continue to fight to rebuild my name and rebuild my appearance in society. And on the legal side, deal with what we need to deal with. But I’m also getting ready to step into the field and prepare for that.”

The Eagles dealt and overcame a terrible backlash when they signed Michael Vick in August 2009, after Vick was convicted in August 2007 of conspiring and directing a dogfight and sentenced to 23 months in federal prison. He was suspended indefinitely by the NFL. After serving his time in July 2009, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell conditionally lifted Vick’s suspension, allowing him to sign with any NFL team.

Let’s see what happens next with Watson, who has an interest in Cleveland BrownsAnd the New Orleans SaintsAnd the Carolina Panthers And the Atlanta Falcons. Watson three times Pro Bowl Choice, has the right to refuse potential trades. He has already said “no” to Seattle Seahawks.

Roseman was known in NFL circles to lurk well in the shadows.

This is still worth watching.
