The Philadelphia Eagles need help at cornerback and the NFC East franchise reportedly attempted to land Jalen Ramsey, though the Los Angeles Rams came over the top with a much better offer for the All-Pro defensive back.
Philadelphia is reportedly still interested in landing an elite cornerback, as the Eagles could have their eyes set on Patrick Peterson.
Bleeding Green Nation is reporting that the Eagles made a notable trade offer for Peterson.
After missing out on the Jalen Ramsey sweepstakes, the Philadelphia Eagles turned their attention to Patrick Peterson. The Eagles offered Nelson Agholor and a first-round draft pick in exchange for Arizona’s star cornerback, a source familiar with the Cardinals tells Bleeding Green Nation.
Peterson, 29, is one of the best cover corners in the NFL. He's been an All-Pro three times and has made eight straight Pro Bowls.
The former LSU star has long been rumored to be on the trading block, though he's remained with the Cardinals, who drafted him No. 5 overall in 2011.
Arizona is 2-3-1 and is set to play at the Giants today.
The Eagles, meanwhile, are set to play the Cowboys on NBC's Sunday Night Football this evening.
