Report: Eagles were outbid by Rams in Jalen Ramsey trade talks
The Philadelphia Eagles were reportedly the runners-up in trade talks for Jalen Ramsey, but were simply unwilling to match what the Los Angeles Rams were willing to pay.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Eagles offered first- and second-round picks to the Jacksonville Jaguars and felt they had a shot at landing the coveted cornerback. The Rams, however, offered two first-round picks and a fourth-rounder, which ultimately was too good for Jacksonville to turn down.
The Jaguars gave the Eagles the opportunity to match the Rams’ offer, but Philadelphia opted not to do so.
Ultimately, the Eagles remain confident in their secondary, as several key members will be returning over the next few weeks. One Philadelphia player clearly felt that the team should have paid up, and they tried, but they just weren’t willing to go as far as the Rams did.
