Best fit: Philadelphia Eagles need secondary reinforcement
Like the Dolphins, the Philadelphia Eagles always seem to be in the mix when a star player is available.
The Eagles are also a 5-1 team with a flaw in the secondary, so they will be sniffing around on the trade market looking for reinforcements to line up beside veteran cornerback Darius Slay.
With a rash of injuries in the secondary, Eagles general manager Howie Roseman will be on the hunt. He appears to be on that hunt already with trade rumors swirling around Denver Broncos young cornerback Patrick Surtain II. Even if that blockbuster is made, don’t expect Roseman to stop there with the team having Super Bowl aspirations.
To solidify the secondary at the safety position, the Eagles should be in the mix if Budda Baker is available, which would be the best fit for the star safety. Not only will he help stabilize the secondary, but he would also take on a leadership role on a team that is one of the favorites to come out of the NFC.
With the competition being the San Francisco 49ers, Dallas Cowboys and Detroit Lions, having that enforcer in the defensive backfield could put the Eagles over the top. Why not Baker? In fact, all the cards seem to be lining up for that possibility.
