The Philadelphia Eagles tried to get Carson Wentz wide receiver help during the season. Howie Roseman, who leads the Eagles football operations, struck out in getting his rookie quarterback help.

Wentz only has one good receiver in Jordan Matthews. Nelson Agholor, who started, is expected to be released. Free agent DeSean Jackson is also considering a return to Philadelphia.

Roseman also tried to acquire Chicago Bears wide receiver Alshon Jeffrey in an in-season trade. They also struck out in acquiring San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Torrey Smith.

They are exploring the trade market once again — but this time they are expected to get their guy. They are inching closer to acquire New Orleans Saints wide receiver Brandin Cooks.

The Eagles would trade their No. 42 overall pick in the second-round to the Saints to get Cooks. New Orleans initially wanted a first-round pick for their speedy receiver, but teams are balking at that.

Then, after being acquired by the Eagles, he’s going to want a hefty new contract. He’s in the final year of his rookie deal — and they have the cap space to make it work.
