The Eagles Told Jordan Howard that the Jordan Howard Trade Rumor is False

Earlier this week, Albert Breer reported that the Eagles made a trade offer for Melvin Gordon that included running back Jordan Howard, who is in his first season with the team. The Birds allegedly also offered a pick swap while asking the Chargers to eat some of their holdout running back’s $5.6 million salary.

That rumor is not true, according to Doug Pederson, who said this today about Howard:

We feel great about Jordan. It’s why we brought him here, and we actually went to Jordan when the report came out, went right to him and said, you know, ‘Listen, you’re here. The report is false. It’s not coming from us.’ So, just wanted to reassure him that this is the reason why you’re here, to help us win games.

Well that’s interesting. We now have Rumor Warz, Albert Breer vs. the Philadelphia Eagles. Which side are you taking? Is the rumor bullshit? Or do you think Howie Roseman really did offer Jordan Howard in a Melvin Gordon proposal?

We will likely never find out, but here’s Doug talking about it, around the 8:30 mark:

  2. Time to snatch this site from Gamblor’s neon claws. No comments on betting and propane posts. Wonder what Kate Devlin thinks about that, she is the voice of reason, love her

    1. I don’t really have much of an opinion other than hoping everyone has an amazing weekend. TGIF! And goooooo Eagles! LOL!

  3. FoxBet and FanDuel are both legit. FanDuel is a little smoother. Kyle Scott is awesome, hung, and doesn’t look horrible on camera.

  4. You do realize that both could still be true, right? The Eagles could have made an offer to the Chargers for Gordan that included Howard. But the details of the reported trade may not be fully accurate (which happens A LOT). In turn, that gives the Eagles the wiggle room to say to their player and its fans that the trade rumor is false. Happens all the time.
