NFL Rumors: Philadelphia Eagles Interested in Trading Steven Wisniewski & Josh Andrews

Stefen Wisniewski

The Philadelphia Eagles remain extremely busy as the first game of the NFL season approaches, trying to offload via trade two offensive linemen: Stefen Wisniewski and Josh Andrews.

Per these tweets, the Eagles seem to feel like they have sufficient depth when it comes to their O-Line, with Jason Peters, Allen Barbre, Jason Kelce, Lane Johnson and Andrew Gardner as the starters.

Wisniewski has been the starting center for the Oakland Raiders from 2011 through 2014, and the Jacksonville Jaguars in 2015. He signed a one-year deal worth $1.51 million with the Eagles this offseason, but is now going to be moved. There’s $500,000 guaranteed in this deal, coming in the form of a signing bonus. The team that trades for him will only have to pay him the base salary that’s left, and perhaps a $250,000 roster bonus, depending on when it’s paid out. He can earn $1.25 million more through incentives. Wisniewski can play guard as well, and has missed only 3 games for the Raiders since 2011, starting in all of his 77 appearances.

Andrews is listed as the #3 center on the team, playing 13 times for the Eagles last season, but never starting, making all of his appearances on special teams, a total of 59 snaps. He is signed for two years on a minimal salary, and the Eagles are hoping they can find someone to throw a draft pick their way for these two players, which seems unlikely in Andrews’ case.
