With about 20 minutes left until the 4:00 p.m. trade deadline on Tuesday, the Eagles made a deal.
The Eagles are trading 2025 sixth and seventh-round picks to the Denver Broncos for tight-end Albert Okwuegbunam.
Okwuegbunam (ow-koo-way-boo-naam, aka Albert O) is a former fourth-round pick of the Broncos in 2020 from Missouri. He tore his ACL midway through his rookie season. But he has made 54 receptions for 546 yards, including four touchdowns in 26 games over three seasons.
With the edition of Albert O, the Eagles have obtained another tight end. They could keep four tight ends on their final roster — already having Dallas Goedert, Josh Stoll, and Grant Calcaterra.
This year, the Eagles already parted ways with track star Devon Allen, 2020 fourth-round pick K’Von Wallace (he is already receiving interest from other teams and will not be back with the Birds, per John Clark), last year’s punt returner Britain Covey, and Trey Sermon, a running back they kept on the 53-man roster.
