The #Eagles currently sit at 7-1, in first place in the NFC East and in the NFL. Carson Wentz is having an unbelievable year, as he has led the Eagles to wins in every game except for a close one on the road against the Chiefs. The weapons around him are playing well too, as Zach Ertz is the leading tight end in the league. In addition, wide receivers Alshon Jeffery and Nelson Agholor have paired well together and have been excellent so far. In the first half of the season, the offensive line was excellent too, opening up holes in the run game and giving Wentz plenty of time. In recent games, that situation has changed. [VIDEO]

An injury to Jason Peters

Against the Redskins, Peters suffered an injury that placed him on the season ending IR.

That left Vaitai as the starter at left tackle, and he looked like anything but a starting left tackle against the 49ers. Carson Wentz was repeatedly pressured, and had far less time than normal to make decisions. When the Eagles lost both of their tackles last year, they went 2-8. If Philadelphia wants to make a Super Bowl run, Vaitai will either need to improve, or the Eagles will need to make a trade [VIDEO].

Why Cordy Glenn?

#Cordy Glenn had been the starting Bills left tackle since he was drafted in 2012. From 2014-2015, the talented offensive tackle played in all 32 games for Buffalo. He's been a stalwart offensive lineman since joining the Bills, and Doug Whaley loved him. But now the Bills are operating under a different regime, and it's one in which Glenn appears to be expendable.

That makes him an excellent trade target for a team like Philadelphia, which could really use a tackle like Glenn on the roster right now.

The price should be right

The #Buffalo Bills have already done business with the Eagles once earlier this year, as Philadelphia effectively traded Jordan Matthews for Ronald Darby. That was reasonable, and Buffalo will likely be fair in a trade for Cordy Glenn as well, especially considering that the organization is interested in moving him.

At this point, the Eagles should be doing everything they can to make a Super Bowl run. Their weakest point right now? Offensive tackle. Glenn immediately fills that hole, and even if it comes at a price, it should be a reasonable one. In fact, Buffalo would probably take a 2nd or maybe even a 3rd round draft pick for the offensive lineman.

The trade deadline

There isn't much time left for teams to make a trade, as the deadline is Tuesday at 9 P.M. If the Eagles are going to make a trade before the deadline, they'll have to do it fast. If they're smart, Cordy Glenn will be one of their trade targets.
