The Eagles have acquired second year wideout Dorial Green-Beckham from the Tennessee Titans. The 2015 second-round pick is swapped for Dennis Kelly, who played two games for the Eagles last year. The trade comes as a shock to those who thought the former standout receiver had changed his ways.
“We are moving on. I appreciate everything Dorial did when he was here. He bought in to what we were trying to do. But in the end we felt like this was the best decision for the team,” Titans general manager Jon Robinson said.
The DGB experiment was a failure in Tennessee, and his new team hopes for more consistency from Green-Beckham. “It’s been very public, his coach’s comments about him and that he needs to get more consistent,” Eagles vice president of football operations Howie Roseman said. Green-Beckham showed signs of brilliance, as he did during his brief tenure playing for the University of Missouri. In his rookie season, Green-Beckham had 32 catches with four touchdowns and 549 yards receiving.
The lack of dedication and focus appear to have been his undoing.
Green-Beckham will feature in a group of receivers that include Jordan Matthews, former Giants receiver Rueben Randle and the Eagles’s 2015 first round pick Nelson Agholor.
