Philadelphia Eagles trying to trade Damaris Johnson

With the final roster cuts looming, the Philadelphia Eagles are attempting to rid themselves of at least one player by way of a trade.

According to Geoff Mosher of CSNPhilly.com, the Philadelphia Eagles are currently looking to trade back up wide receiver Damaris Johnson. 

Johnson is buried on the Eagles’ depth chart behind the likes of Riley Cooper, Jeremy Maclin, Arrelious Benn, Jeff Maehl, Josh Huff, Quron Pratt, Will Murphy and a guy named Ifeanyi Momah.

The Eagles are likely looking to trade Johnson in hopes of getting some sort of compensation before ultimately cutting him loose on their way to the final 53-man roster.

Teams around the league have until 4 p.m. ET on Saturday to get to their final roster.

Whether or not someone trades for Johnson remains to be seen, but it seems unlikely that a team will part ways with a draft pick — even if it is a conditional late-round pick — for a player who will primarily play on special teams.
