Dorial Green-Beckham has been traded from Tennessee to Philadelphia for offensive lineman Dennis Kelly.
Green-Beckham was the top WR recruit coming out of high school when he first went to Missouri, and he left the school after a domestic violence incident, sat out a year at Oklahoma, and then went pro. Given his history, he was considered a talented risk, and Tennessee took him in the 2nd round a year ago.
I guess you could say Tennessee had seen enough and didn’t want to take that risk anymore. The receiving group in Tennessee is far from certain, but Green-Beckham was not standing out in that muddled group that also includes holdovers Kendall Wright, Harry Douglas, and Justin Hunter. The team added Rishard Matthews and more recently, Andre Johnson, this offseason. Rookie Tajae Sharpe saw plenty of action with the first team in the first preseason game.
Green-Beckham was traded for an offensive lineman who has started 5 games in the last three years, but can provide depth. It’s still interesting in that Kelly would be one of the candidates to play right tackle during Lane Johnson’s 10-game suspension. In Philadelphia, Green-Beckham should compete for targets behind starters Nelson Agholor and Jordan Matthews, as well as free agent acquisition Rueben Randle.
