ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter appeared on 97.5 The Fanatic in Philadelphia Wednesday morning and without being prompted stated, "the Eagles are more equipped to make a run at Deshaun Watson than any team out there." (Brandon Gowton on Twitter)
This comment came after Schefter talked about a move the Sixers needed to make this offseason potentially bringing in former Raptor Kyle Lowry. Regarding the allegations surrounding Watson, he went on to state that, "I’m operating under the assumption somehow this will be settled, or he will serve his discipline for the league, or whatever punishment he has coming, whatever is fair and just, once that is done, I just think that at that point in time, whenever it is, when he is deemed ready to play by legal authorities, by the National Football League, to me, the Philadelphia Eagles should be waiting.” The Eagles could potentially have three first-round picks in 2022 and it's unknown whether second-year quarterback Jalen Hurts will pan out as a starter in 2021. Either way, Schefter is always very plugged in, so this is a situation to keep an eye on as we get closer to the start of the 2021 regular season.
