Eagles’ Mychal Kendricks Requests Trade



Philadelphia Eagles linebacker Mychal Kendricks said that he has requested to be traded from the team and that the front office denied him.

“Their response was you’re young, you’re talented and we’re not into that. So I took it like that and was like, ‘Alright.’ That’s why we have agents,” said Kendricks after practice on Friday.

“That’s the business. It’s just like that. You tell them what you want, they either do it or they don’t and you are in the contract that you signed. So that’s it.”

Kendricks, a former 2nd round pick out of Cal, was on the field for only 27% of the defensive snaps last season as the Eagles were mostly in sub-packages.

His lack of playing time in defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz’s scheme is likely fueling his request, a request that Kendrick’s feels could be re-visited in the future.

“No, it’s [the trade window] never closed. There’s a million teams out there. You’ve only gotta have one of them that loves you, one of them that likes what you’re doing. There’s 32 out there. It’s never closed. Everyone’s up. We’re all renting space here, coaches included.”

Instead of playing out his rookie deal, Kendricks inked a four-year, $29 million contract extension containing $16 million worth of guarantees in 2015.

I signed under a different coach and I signed under different management — well, some people are still here,” he added. “Things change.”
