  • Former Iowa OL Matt Tobin traded from Philadelphia Eagles to Seattle Seahawks

On Monday afternoon, the Eagles acquired a 2018 fifth-round pick from the Seattle Seahawks in exchange for offensive tackle Matt Tobin and a 2018 seventh-round pick.

The Eagles will get the Seahawks 5th-round draft choice next year.

Carroll said Fant will have surgery next Monday and that he suffered both ACL and MCL damage in his right knee when teammate Justin Britt fell into the back of his legs early in the second quarter. The team could also move Luke Joeckel over from left guard, and rookie Ethan Pocic could compete there as well. Last season, the part-time starter played more at tackle. Tobin was on the roster bubble and their trade indicates the team feels comfortable entering the year with Dillon Gordon as the backup left tackle (he was ahead of Tobin on the depth chart).

North Korea warns of nuclear war over U.S. military drills with South
Liberal civic groups in South Korea joined the chorus by staging a rally in Gwanghwamun Square and in front of the Blue House. North Korean leader Kim Jong-un could test another intercontinental missile and seek to drive a wedge between the allies.


Nevertheless, it would appear the Seahawks have some options now. Tobin enters his fifth season in the National Football League and will play alongside Seattle quarterback Russell Wilson. But Fant's development induced the team to keep him on the left edge and install Joeckel at guard.

The Seahawks' offensive line took a serious hit over the weekend when the team lost starting left tackle George Fant for the season.

The Eagles have Jason Peters and Lane Johnson at tackle, and Chance Warmack and Stefen Wisniewski could be overqualified backups.
