The NFL is a copycat league. Eagles G.M. Howie Roseman would want to be the cat who will get copied.

Asked how the ongoing spike in veteran receiver contracts could impact the team’s method to drafting a receiver, Roseman created an appealing philosophical point throughout a Wednesday push meeting.

“[Y]ou have to make a determination on what your priorities are on constructing the crew, no matter if you’re going to kind of go with the move or you’re heading to sort of figure out what is the most vital detail for your team and if there’s some worth in remaining various and figuring out what now is form of the up coming area,” Roseman explained to reporters. “I believe we spent a good deal of time, Mentor [Nick Sirianni] and I communicate about this all the time, if we’re going to be the exact same as anyone else, we’re most likely likely to end in the middle of the pack. Often you have to acquire dangers and you have to stand out there and do a thing unique than everybody else. So that doesn’t mean that there are not right conclusions to make at that posture. But at the identical time, if you are executing the similar thing that every person else is accomplishing, you’re probably a step late.”

That comment could be an indicator that the Eagles aren’t imagining about making a large trade for 49ers receiver Deebo Samuel, since that would simply be the subsequent phase in this new trend of groups paying out major money for receivers from other teams. It also may perhaps be, in a roundabout way, a hint as to how they could be handling their quarterback place, for now.

I have puzzled no matter whether the Eagles are looking at generating a break from the mold of acquiring a franchise quarterback and then spending one particular. What if they become the to start with crew who is content with a decrease-tier player, who will command a lower-tier agreement? That would go away millions for other positions that normally get brief shrift if/when a quarterback would make current market-degree revenue.

When wanting at the listing of the best-paid quarterbacks in the NFL, there aren’t a ton of Super Bowl rings in that team. The Eagles received theirs with a backup. It’s possible they recognize that the crucial to getting a contender isn’t staying in contention for richest quarterback in the league.
