Eagles Land Dorial Green-Beckham In Trade With Titans, Bolster Receiving Depth

1,595

The Philadelphia Eagles have added a talented, young wide receiver to their roster by trading for Dorial Green-Beckham from the Tennessee Titans on Tuesday.

The Titans received offensive lineman Dennis Kelly, who can play both guard and tackle. The teams formally announced the trade Tuesday morning.

Offensive line now becomes a bit of an issue for the Eagles after this trade, though.

This move also isn’t great for fantasy owners. Green-Beckham has been a popular pick for breakout fantasy stars entering the 2016 NFL season, but he’s now going to a weaker offense with fewer weapons than the Titans.

Philadelphia also has uncertainty at the quarterback position. Rookie Carson Wentz fractured his ribs during the team’s first preseason game, meaning Sam Bradford — who threw for just 19 touchdowns last season, likely will earn the starting job.
