Eagles Acquire Jordan Howard From Bears For 2020 Pick 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Fri Mar 29, 2019 12:30 pm

The Philadelphia Eagles have acquired Jordan Howard from the Chicago Bears for a draft pick in 2020.

The Bears will get a sixth-round pick that can become a fifth-round pick, according to a source.

Philadelphia struggled on the ground last season, finishing 28th in rushing yards (1,570) and was second from the bottom in yards per attempt (3.9).

A head scratcher. He's a proven commodity on a cheap contract and is worth more than a 6th round flier. Even if he's not a perfect fit, he's still the Bears best rusher and finding someone who will even make the roster in the 6th round is tenuous at best. I understand dumping Brandon Marshall for a 7th. He was a cancer. JoHo wasn't so strengthening a conference opponent who you play next year for next to nothing to save 2 mil doesn't make sense to me. We'll see how it plays out.
