A Philadelphia Eagles pass rusher wants to explore a potential trade option ahead of the 2023 season
As roster cutdown day looms on Tuesday with the 53-man deadline, the Philadelphia Eagles could be making a bit of a surprise move.
On Monday, ESPN reporter Jeremy Fowler reported Eagles DE Derek Barnett is looking for an increased role and is hoping to play more elsewhere. Barnett’s agent, Drew Rosenhaus, has been gauging the market for an opportunity to play more:

Will the Philadelphia Eagles trade Derek Barnett?
The 27-year-old Barnett is a former Tennessee standout and first-round pick of the Eagles in 2017.
The Eagles do plan on keeping Barnett per the report but it’s hard to ignore his frustrations. Barnett is in a rotation of Philadelphia Eagles defensive ends that includes Brandon Graham and Josh Sweat. It also includes outside linebackers Haason Reddick and Nolan Smith.
With the Eagles planning on keeping Barnett, it becomes a tricky situation. The Eagles are expected to be the top team again in the NFC, but in terms of playing time, Barnett wants more and barring any injuries it might be hard to find that for him in that rotation.
