The Philadelphia Eagles have been active on the NFL trade market.

Last week, their general manager, Howie Roseman, reportedly offered a second-round draft pick to the Oakland Raiders for wide receiver Amari Cooper.

Ultimately, Dallas Cowboys owner and general manager Jerry Jones sent a first-round pick to Oakland in exchange for Cooper.

And according to a report from Jason La Canfora of CBS Sports, the Eagles now want to acquire elite defensive back Patrick Peterson from the Cardinals.

Peterson recently asked the Cardinals for a trade, according to multiple reports, but then doubled back on Twitter Wednesday.

If the Cardinals do wind up trading Peterson, the New England Patriots are also interested in the star defensive back, according to a report from retired cornerback Bryant McFadden, now with CBS Sports.



This is Jason Garrett’s eighth season as head coach of the Cowboys. Here are some important facts about his tenure.
