A year after a Eagles presumably would have favourite to have gotten its hands on Tennessee’s first-round breeze pick, a Eagles have acquired a 2015 second-round selection.

The Eagles announced on Tuesday a trade that pierce receiver Dorial Green-Beckham to Philly in a lapse for descent lineman Dennis Kelly.

In 16 games (five starts) as a rookie, Green-Beckham held 32 passes for 549 yards and 4 touchdowns. That doesn’t sound scarcely as good, however, as a glass-half-full characterization from a Eagles’ press recover announcing a move: “Among his associate far-reaching receivers in a 2015 NFL Draft class, Green-Beckham ranked fifth in receiving yards. He totaled some-more receptions, receiving yards and touchdowns than 6 of a 7 far-reaching receivers comparison before him in a draft, trailing usually Raiders WR Amari Cooper (72 receptions for 1,070 yards and 6 touchdowns).”

Kelly was a fifth-round collect of a Eagles in 2012. Beckham-Green had been buried on a 2016 abyss draft in Tennessee; given a team’s joining to a using game, a actor who simply wouldn’t be throwing many passes apparently wasn’t value gripping around — even yet it appears that a Eagles instituted a move.

“Not to pronounce on Philly’s behalf, but they inquired about it,’’ Titans G.M. John Robinson said. “They suspicion it was a good event for him, and we suspicion adding Dennis would be good for a football team. We are relocating on. we conclude all Dorial did when he was here. He bought in to what we are perplexing to do. But in a finish we felt like this was a best preference for a team.”

It’s good to acknowledge a mistake, generally when Robinson wasn’t a one who done it. It stays to be seen either it was a mistake for a Titans to give adult on Green-Beckham.
